Ever since my brother moved to New York City we have had this trip to visit him on our list of things to do. It was both of the girls' first time in NYC and Olivia was definitely a bit overwhelmed by the craziness of Manhattan. We absolutely love Airbnb and wouldn't know what to do without it. We stayed at a really cozy and safe 2 bedroom condo in Brooklyn that was walking distance from the Brooklyn Bridge Park and the surrounding areas were pretty family friendly and convenient. We wished the weather was a bit warmer during our stay but we were lucky to get a few times of sunny warm weather. We spent our entire first day in Brooklyn and most of our time exploring the Brooklyn Bridge Park's activities. We got ice cream and pizza all the while getting to watch the sunset over Manhattan before returning home for a much needed bath for the girls and bedtime. The next day we met up with my brother and had breakfast at the Rockefeller Center and he took the girls to a few toy stores before finally getting to see his apartment in midtown Manhattan. We then headed to Central Park Zoo and ended the night with some dinner and shopping in KTown. It was really great for the girls to have some quality play time with their uncle and that was pretty much the highlight of the trip. Things don't always go as planed and it's never easy when you travel with young children like ours but we hope that we will continue to have opportunities like this to travel as a family and continue to push ourselves to make more memories like these =).
