70 ideas for splurge groups

Travel day 3

If Friday was a day to pay homage to the shopping gods, then Saturday was easily the day spent with the gods of art. We spent the good part of the day gawking at monets, manets, picassos, van goghs and renoirs.
It was like a dream seeing all the original paintings from works I have admired much of my life. Highlights? 1-The two girls at the piano by renoir. This hung in my piano teacher's studio where Kyla, rob and I spent much of our childhood.
2- Starry Starry nights by Van Gogh- also another all time fave.

We also decided to break up our day with a pedicab tour of Central Park. It was a beautiful day in New York and the Park was packed with people enjoying life. We even got to witness a proposal and a wedding. Quite lovely!
Other excitement in our day was the huge toy store, FAO Schwartz where I got Willis a backpack for kindergarten and Lucia a 2nd bday present.
Another great stop was Rockefeller Centre where we went to Top of the Rock and enjoyed a cupcake or two from Magnolia Bakery.
Tonight we took in a play, Harvey, which was mom's choice. It apparently was a childhood fave so we had to see it and it turns out that Sheldon from Big Bang, Jim Parsons is starring in it. Bonus! It was a very funny play and I enjoyed seeing bits of Sheldon's voice up close and personal.
Once again we had supper at 11pm....Tis a crazy life we lead!
