Day 14

The boys and I got out early this morning and walked two miles to North Meadows Recreation Center to play basketball on their courts. We walked through Central Park and saw parts of the park we had not seen before. Gorgeous!



We hooped it up for about and hour and a half and then decided it was time for lunch! We ate tacos from this small place near our house called Dos Toros.

Later that afternoon we met up with Renzi and went to the New York Historical Society to tour their museum. They had an exhibit by the children's illustrator and author Mo Willems and Jackson was super excited to see it. Mo Willems books were some of his favorites as he was learning to read.




The museum also had an awesome short movie about New York that we watched and then we went downstairs to the children's history museum.



As we were leaving they had a small exhibit about Alexander Hamilton and the boys thought these statues were hilarious. The statues are of Alwxander Hamilton and Aaron Burr's shoot out.

We had a babysitter set up for Friday night and Renzi and I went on a date in the city! Renzi set up our night to hop around to different places and we had a ball.

We started at this place called "Ten Bells" and had wine and oysters. Such a cute little place.

We then moved on to this Cider Bar and had cider. I can say right now that I am not a fan of cider. Yuck!

After the Cider Bar we jumped in a can and headed to our dinner destination. The place is called La Esquina-and when we pulled up to this tiny taco truck looking place I admit I was a bit skeptical.


We walked up to the door and a guy in a black suit with a head set asked us our names-he then talked into his headset, confirmed our reservation and then led us to this tiny door in the back where another guy is black suit and headset met us. He led us down this tiny staircase....


This staircase led us into the most spectacular restaraunt I have ever seen. It was breathtakingly gorgeous. So gorgeous, in fact, that I must have been in a trance because I took zero pictures of the place! Dang it!
We had an incredible meal-enchiladas, corn on the cob, queso fundido and spicy margaritas. After dinner the place turns into this nightclub so we hung out for a while before we went to our next destination.

We tried to get into a couple of places but they were full-PTD (called ease don't tell) and Death and Co., but ended up at a cute place near our house called "Dear Mr. Irving." We stayed for a glass of wine and then called it a night. 

Such fun!!!
