The Holiday Week That Was

Here's a recap of how we spent our Christmas week.. we don't celebrate so there were no trees and presents but there was a Santa and some hot chocolate (Jacques Torres makes a great cup) , lights and fish and toddler fun all around.

We spent Christmas Eve walking 5th Ave and checking out all the window displays. We also met with an old friend of mine.. we've known each other since we were twelve I think and it had been a few years since we had met.. and in those we years I had had D and she had gotten married.. so it was wonderful hanging out with her.. even if only for a few hours.



we stopped by Grand Central Station's Transit Museum Store and Gallery Annex where they had set up there 11th Holiday Train Show.. D could hardly contain his excitement, he even tried to jump into the display a few times.


Christmas Day was spent in the Camden Discovery Museum chasing fish..




And the next day we spent running around in Philadelphia's Please Touch Children's Museum.. a must for every kid if you're ever in the area.. it was awesome. We spent over four hours there and had to leave only because they were closing up.
