Spring Break kept me from posting this last week. But I'm so glad to be back to share another Bits of My Weekend with you. If you're not part of this little community, I'd love for you to join. It's great to see how others around the globe spend their weekend!
We had 2 big events this weekend which is why I'm posting a lot more pictures than normal. Saturday was Lily's 7th birthday and of course Easter was Sunday. Lily was just thrilled that the resurrection of our Lord and Savior was "moved" to be closer to her birthday.
We started her big day off with a carriage ride around Central Park. We could only persuade Jackson and Rod to join us. Ben and Bo said they had other things to do. Carriage rides don't really seem to appeal to teenage boys.
Central Park was looking beautiful that day:
This is Lily receiving one of her many birthday phone calls from the grandparents. She finally cut them off by saying, "Uh...I need to go. I'm kinda on a carriage ride. I'd like to enjoy that now, please. Thank you. "

Jumping for joy in Central Park.
Next stop was The Plaza Hotel, which is just amazing. Even the flowers in the lobby are over the top:
The reason we went to The Plaza was so we could visit The Eloise store. It is just adorable. Especially if you like the color pink.
This lovely picture of my backside is me picking up fragile merchandise that Lily dropped. Within the first 5 seconds of walking in the store.
Tea Party room at The Eloise Store:
Next stop was lunch for the birthday girl at an outdoor cafe. Girl loves her sushi.
Let's just say this sculpture at Colombus Circle caused a bit of curiousity. Can you see Lily running around it...then screeching to a halt. She had quite a few things to say about this.
Happy Birthday baby girl.
After church on Sunday we took a stroll through Bryant Park to enjoy the sunshine.
We wandered over to 5th Avenue where we heard The Easter Bonnet Parade was going on. I'm going to include one picture here, but I will be doing a whole post on this event later. Because it was...well...it was a bit out of the ordinary.
Cab ride home with my handsome husband after a long day. I'm a lucky girl.
