An NYC birthday

My 35th birthday was spent in New York City with Mom, our niece and nephew, my sister, and dinner with my dear friend Shannon. It was the perfect New York day. Warm weather, sunshine, activities that the kids loved and relaxed family time.

We met my sister and family at the Children’s Museum of the Arts in down in Soho. I highly recommend this place for creative little people. Painting, water colours, clay, and more. It was a beautifully colourful, fun, and messy place.

Magnolia Bakery cupcakes

And since it was my birthday, I requested that we visit Magnolia Bakery in the West Village. I have never been there, but I have heard delicious things about this NY institution. The buttercream frosting alone is worth the trip! It’s to die for. Lucky for us, there was a playground right around the corner. This was probably the highlight of the day for Flora and Elin. They could have stayed there for hours. It was a nice break for everyone, to sit, chat, relax, and watch the ladies play.

The perfect NYC day ended with perfect NYC pizza in the Bronx. I dare to say, this is the best tasting pizza I have ever had in my life. I’ve had tons of pizza in Italy (yet to eat it in Naples), but this one takes the cake. Homemade pepperoni—yes please!

So, if you ever find yourself in Pelham Parkway and you’re looking for a bite to eat, go to Louie and Ernies. It’s a life changer! Happy birthday to me!
