Family Reunion

The final highlight of our holidays was a trip to Eau Claire, Wisconsin to join the family reunion of Susanna’s family (maternal side). There were aprox. 40 people taking part at this event which took place in a very nice park. We enjoyed a lot getting to know the relatives and hanging out at this lovely place.  Our fabulous hosts, Ginger, Ernie and family really made sure that we felt at home and spoiled us with preparing the richest brunch. Thank you so so much guys!
Kilian had a great time there playing with their dog who even shared his food with him 🙂

The High Line

Several blogs and friends were raving that the High Line was one of the must see things at the moment in New York. The High Line was originally constructed in the 1930s, to lift dangerous freight trains off Manhattan’s streets. Now this converted into amile-and-a-half-long elevated park, running through the West Side neighborhoods of the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen.

It really is the biggest high light of our stay in NYC and a must see for everybody who comes to the city. Take a look at the amazing pictures I took by clicking on the picture above.

Moomah

Last year there was this article in the Nonchalant Mom blog about the best restaurants to go with kids in NYC. One of them was Moomah and this one is even rather close for Columbus Park (where our hotel is). so we went there this morning and had a really great time. The location is very charming and creative, the food is very tasty and healthy and Keagan really enjoyed the DIY crafts projects while Kilian could roam around freely and meet other toddlers.

The Barking Crab

After a fun trip to the Boston Aquarium Chris had the awesome idea to go to the Barking Crab Restaurant. We had so much fun with the fantastic food, great music and the company of our friends.

After the lunch there was the sad moment of goodbye and Ebbesens had to go to the airport to fly back to Dallas. We will miss you so so much!
