Our winter wonderland. After a year of chasing the sun we decided to end our adventure with a week in the snow at Keystone in Colorado. It was a different world for us, so beautiful and magical and freezing cold. It was the first time our kids had even seen snow and it took them a few days of shock to get over the temperature change.

Places that you can't really imagine until you are there...Read More

Times Square, Lady Liberty, the 9/11 Memorial, MoMa, Grand Central Station, a Yankees game and so much more. We walked thousands of steps across the Brooklyn Bridge, along the High Line and through Central Park, and spent the time in between sitting on the front stoop of our house in Brooklyn watching the Williamsburg crowd go by...Read More
