A Day in the City with Chloe

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.
