Posing with the ballerinas after a free Nutcracker performance that was randomly at our gym.
Wearing his jacket backwards at the Central Park Zoo.

Same backwards look in our lobby with an owl accessory. Very stylish. Max loved the Christmas tree with candy canes.

As you can see, we were busy. We checked out many of NYC’s holiday happenings as Max and Julie helped Brittney do research for Kid On The Town. Both kids love being out and about, and we love sharing in their wonder.
