Day in NYC

We went up to NYC Thursday with the kids –ahhh, it was absolutely the most perfect day. Sunshine-y & 60-something degrees! First, we went to see daddy’s office. Rexford & Harper had so much fun meeting all of daddy’s work friends. The Quirky office is located in downtown NYC – one of the best parts of the city to explore. (in my opinion)

Next stop was lunch. We finally tried the famous grilled cheese at Murrays. If you love cheese…& I am talking about the REAL stuff, they carry world famous cheeses…the BEST! One of my absolute favorite places to shop in NYC. (you can also order online for dinner parties/holiday gifts/etc)

We found a nice area across the street with benches and a fountain to enjoy our sandwiches. Does anyone else have kids that cannot sit still? I dread sit down lunches, and it was so much more fun to eat picnic style in the fresh air!

Then, it was play time at the park. NYC has some fabulous parks. & there is something really romantic about sitting on a park bench watching Taxis zoom by while your kids have the “time of their life!”

It was a fabulous day. & after hours of shopping, we spent only $68… on 4 logs of stinky cheese! We will be enjoying it with lots of red wine over our holiday week together. (maybe we’ll even bring some on our quick trip to Washington DC!)

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday. I’ll be checking in occasionally next week. Follow Spearmint Blogs on Facebook & Twitter for updates.

Gender Neutral Nursery

This nursery was part of the Parade of Homes Utah & was photographed by the girls of Hiya Papaya. I am not sure what is more beautiful…the nursery or the photography!

photo of the day

Dear Shari,

I always look forward to seeing the Spearmint Baby posts pop up in my blog Reader. Here is a submission for the photo of the day. It’s my little guy on the playground. He went through a phase where he loved to yell at the camera. I write about our adventures and life in France at

Thanks for considering us!
