A Birthday Celebration In Brooklyn.

Since the girls birthdays fell on a Sunday this year we decided to celebrate them on Saturday. I had asked the girls on new years what they would like to do for their birthdays, and Chelsea said ice skating. Lexie, being the humble, and money saving girl that she is said it didn't matter. I then said to her, "there must be something you'd like to do, or want."
And then she said, "I'd like some good pizza." Of course she meant new york pizza, and of course i obliged because not only do i agree about the whole "the pizza in new york is so much better than here", but I also love that city! That fact that these two were so simple in telling us the gifts that they want puts me more at ease. After all...it's the quality of time that we spend as a family, not the money we spend on mega birthday gifts that matters. (Although they got a few of those too!)

We ventured out to Brooklyn to eat at one of our favorite pizza places. Lexie has never been to Julianna's, and the white pizza has now become her favorite. Because the snow began to fall down pretty quickly we weren't  able to go ice skating. It was too cold, and wet and didn't want to skate while it was snowing so much. Chelsea was pretty bummed, but we told her not to worry that we still have a few more weeks of winter left, and that we'd still go ice skating even if that meant skating somewhere local in an inside skating rink! We had so much fun at Brooklyn bridge park though. Too much I might add that I didnt' want to leave. The girls really love this area in Brooklyn, and Lexie even said she wouldn't mind it if we lived over here! A dream thought that may never happen, but we made the absolute of our evening, and had so much fun!
Although the snow diminished the skating rink had closed, but we managed to have some fun while walking around brookyn bridge park capturing a few shots to keep this night alive in my memory! 
We were surprised that the carousel was open, and for the umpteenth time we all rode it. This is one place I'll never grow weary in taking the kids. The first time we came here was absolutely magical! We all had so much fun. You're never to old to ride a carousel!
I love that it only costs two bucks to "pony up!"

A snowball fight ensued as soon as we left the carousel, and I can't even begin to tell you how fun that was. My hands were literally freezing at the taking of these photos especially since I had thrown a few snowballs at Noah beforehand, but i still managed to take a few. 
Here I am trying to capture a photo with Jon with the birthday girls, but Noah kept photobombing it by throwing snowballs at them. It was too much fun trying to capture the moment without laughing so hard! 
We ended the evening having this yummy dessert at Amorino which is absolutely delicious! New york always has the best places to eat which is the girls favorite thing to do! Mine too!
