New York Report

Highlights of our New York trip for Ben & Alex were playing in the pool with their cousins, eating street food in Manhattan ("I had four treats today!"), chasing (not poisoning) pigeons in the park, and riding a train, bus, taxi, and carousel.

Come back here, pigeons! (If you click on the picture to enlarge it you'll be able to pick out A&B. Maybe see what book that guy is reading, too).

Yeah, we forgot to bring their bathing suits to NY. This picture is family-friendly, though.


I just like this bear statue.

Bird Lineups

video

Ben and Alex have a new birdsong book which is inspiring all sorts of re-naming of stuffed animals. Here, Ben names the "birds" he's got lined up; Alex is listing his last stuffed-animal lineup from memory. I'm not sure how the jaguar got in there, but it might be a pun on "Jaeger."
