Places to Go (Vacation) - Memorial Day Weekend in Queens, NYC


One of my best friends and her husband recently bought a house in Queens, NYC, so for Memorial Day we decided to overwhelm them with a visit. We arrived to pouring rain, but within an hour or so the showers ended and we headed out to explore. I loved the feel of their neighborhood - outdoor cafes, a second run movie theater, tons of yards brimming with flowers (and statues), Dees' pizza (seriously amazing), mansions in the are of town known as the Gardens, and a baby who the kids couldn't stop trying to entertain - turns out F's squirrel dance is a sure winner with the six month crowd.

We spent the rest of the weekend exploring some of NYC's attractions of which I'll have more pics and posts throughout the week. In the meantime, Happy Monday everyone!! Today's Dan and my seven year wedding anniversary. Crazy how time flies.


*If you're free on Tuesday night, this Venus viewing event looks fun. Also, KidFriendly DC has some great suggestions for the week, including the Harbour Kids series at Washington Harbour.

*These pop ups are AWESOME!
