i spent my day trolling around central park with liam and bells (the babysitting charges).
we visited the castle (liam loves all things pertaining to knights) and marveled at the trees in full bloom. then we studied the ducks as they swam back and forth, back and forth.

and at one point during the day (against the screaming protests of my allergies) i thought, this is perfect. this moment is perfect. if only i could bottle this moment. 

and just as quickly as it came, it went.

now i'm off to dinner in the west village (my very favorite nyc neighborhood. doesn't this place i'm going look divine?

i'll let you know if the food is as good as the curbside appeal would suggest.
