The girls have been so good over the past few days. Jordan hasn’t felt great this past week, so we spent a lot of days inside getting the whole house healthy. After everyone was back to full health, we decided to surprise the kids with an outing; an outing that momma has been wanting to go on for a while now!

They were so excited. Jozlyn kept squeeling when she saw the bikes and Kendall, of course, copied everything Jozzy did. After biking up and down the hills of the park (ps- I forgot how tiring biking is, but so much fun!), we sat down at the mall which is always littered with street performers and artists. It is also where J Lo strolled with Ralph Fiennes in MAID IN MANHATTAN.

We even happened onto an outdoor, free dance class in the middle of the park.


The artists were great, but the scenery was breath taking.

Jozlyn saw daddy taking pictures and was an oh so willing model.

and so Kendall followed…

I know this pic is crazy blurry, but we had so much fun!


New adventures, new places…every day.

Thanks for checkin in!!

We are a family of four just trying to figure out what our "new normal" looks like in Manhattan! I'm Kayla, a 29-year-old creative with a passion for theater and writing. Jordan is a musician and experience pastor with a heart that loves people. And we have two awesome little girls, Jozlyn and Kendall. Our house is crazy...always full of energy and laughter.... and we have no idea what we're doing! Help us figure it out as we go!


Join the conversation...

I'm Kayla. Mom of two, wife of one and new New York transplant. We're a family of four fumbling our way through our new normal in Manhattan! We're excited to learn as we go... we can't mess this up too bad, right? :)
