Lulu's 4th Birthday Party

Here are some photos from Lulu's Hula-Hooping birthday party madness in Central Park.  There were swings, wagon rides, hula hoops, a birthday parade, bubbles -- the kids had lots of fun.  Here are some photos of Lulu raiding the candy jar.  And you notice she is her mother's daughter - unlike the other kids who just stuck their hands in, picked out the candy and ate it, Lulu is carefully putting her candy in a wax paper bag.  Details, details!!!  :-)

...but my favorite story of the day -- we arrive to the park with all our stuff to set up and Lulu was playing and flashes me...she didn't put underwear on.   Dada, who was on his way already in a cab on his third roundtrip, had to turn around and pick up some undies for her.

A Visit to the Countryside

We spent the weekend in Litchfield, Connecticut -- at the country home of a fellow Bloomberg employee.  It was the perfect country get-away and a delicious taste of country living, complete with peony-picking, delicious food and wine, a hammock and 9 zillion photo ops.



Here is a slideshow of the girls in the country.  They both loved it - However, Lulu did say that, "Country houses are gross", I asked her why and she told me that there were too many bugs.  Agreed on that, Lulu!!!!

Here is the slideshow of the home - it consisted of the main home (1800's), the guest house (1700's) and the most darling rustic barn you'll ever see.  Tiny doorways, original flooring, vintage wallpaper and decor - Staying there was my idea of heaven.
