Sunday was a quiet adventure into the city with the kids. Avy is in love with the show DC Cupcakes and the girls from Georgetown Cupcakes have a store in Manhattan right down the street from where I get my haircut. Manhattan location bonus: no lines. Bigger bonus: AMAZING CUPCAKES. The Peanut Butter Fudge should be illegal. 

After buying some to take home to the Big Guy, we headed uptown along the river, the kids loved seeing the Intrepid and the giant cruise ships docked along the Hudson.  Final destination of the day...Hippo Playground in Riverside Park to celebrate a little friend's 4th birthday in superhero style. This playground is nestled at the base of a hill descending from the Soldiers and Sailors Monument and a stone's throw from the Secret Garden which was absolutely lovely yesterday. Great party, great place, great friends.

The excitement was bubbling out of her.
