MLK Jr. Day and Cafe Blossom

Love Life and Lollipops- Cafe Blossom

Hi everyone! Sorry about the no post yesterday.  We had a crazy day of running around, having fun, shopping, visiting with my sister and mom, vegan lunch on the Upper West Side, and we finished up our day with a photo shoot for the New York Times (I'll tell you all about it when the the article hits the stands, it's all about families living in Williamsburg)!

Avi and I started our day hitting up our first ballet/tap class for which we were both in jeans when everyone else was wearing cutie patootie ballet gear.  Nonetheless, Avi loved it and continued to "more dance" me all day long.  After class and a little play time at Klub 4 Kidz Richie scooped us in the car to head up to meet my mom and Liza (my sister) at the Museum of Natural History.

Unfortunately the rest of New York City and their kids had the same idea and buying tickets proved to be more stressful than worth the dinosaurs, so we headed over to Blossom for an uh-mazing lunch.  I intended this post to really be about Blossom because I love it and all of it's sister restaurants.  We love love Blossom and everything of the menu and are always torn what to order, but here's what I'll say: ORDER THE SOUTHERN SEITAN SANDWICH;).

After that we moseyed over to Capezio to snag Avi some new ballet and tap shoes which my mom bought for her along with a leotard and some tights (mom and Liza had a bit of a ball with all the trying on and tutus).  Then we hit up a kids store for some footie pj's for Avi as it's been frigid here in Brooklyn then headed home for a nap.

While I cooked dinner the photographer from the times came by and snapped a few of us in our natural habitat.  His name was Robert Caplin and he was a supernice guy.  Chatted us up about his adventures and we were all ears.  I made him have some dinner with us and sent some  home with him for his wife (I can't help myself).  Then bath time and bed and a serious night's sleep after a full day!
