We started at the MoMA, scouting out works of art for a potential scavenger hunt for Chloe’s birthday. And going on a tour for tweens run by the museum’s education center. The programs are a terrific deal – if you attend one, you receive free admission to the museum and a free pass to use on a future visit for up to five people. Probably one of the best kept secrets in the city.
Chloe was a bit tired and cranky this morning, but quickly came around once the guided visit was over It didn’t help that we encountered a common problem with guided museum visits – there’s usually always one attendee who doesn’t shut up. This kid annoyed Chloe to no end.
After the museum, we made our way cross-town, with a quick stop in front of a Niki de Saint Phalle sculpture on Park Avenue. We vainly attempted to get a table at Serendipity III, but ended up at Patsy’s instead, which was probably a better choice. And what’s a trip to East 60th Street without a stop at Dylan’s Candy Bar?
We had a lovely day together and Sophie is now sufficiently jealous that she has demanded I spend some special Mommy-Sophie one-on-one with her tomorrow. Life is tough, I tell you.
