We spent the past two days upstate in Saugerties, Kingston and Phoenicia, NY. It was so relaxing to get out of the city and slow down for a bit. Here’s our family selfie at Phoenicia Diner today. Tasty food—and cheap too! #upstateny

We caught Charlie singing @pekkysavan’s hit song Dear Loren. He’s singing the “my best friend” part over and over… 🎢🎀

Today was our first time at the McCarren Park Pool and I’m kicking myself that we didn’t go sooner! It was so empty and the process to get in was relatively painless. Plus we got a free lunch afterwards thanks to the NYC free summer meals program. What fun! Thanks for encouraging us to get out @halesstudio!
