Last summer we took Atticus to Water Lab (a glorified splash pad) at Pier 6 in Brooklyn and it was the funnest! I kept meaning to take the kids and the other morning I said okay we are leaving in 30 minutes and going to Water Lab – its happening. So we left the apartment and squoze onto the subway during rush hour and had a 45 minute subway ride to Clark St. and walked to Pier 6. When we finally got there it was CLOSED!!!!! It was closed for cleaning and didn’t open til noon that day, but when we got there it was like 8am! So we decided to do playgrounds, soccer fields, running on the pier, ice cream, and yummy food all on the pier and it was soooo fun. The kids had a blast and just as we were leaving we saw the splash pad open but by then, they were so ready for a nap. We are pretty strict with our napping schedule and like to be home for their naps so they get the full 3 hours otherwise – it ain’t pretty! I think Pier 6, Top of the Rock, and Sheep’s Meadow might be my favorite spots in the city. Just so pretty!! Love this city.

Have a good day everyone!!!

  1. This is the cutest post! Funny thing I wanted you to know—I go to a high school in Oxford, MS and we all have laptops given to us by the school. Every single one of my girlfriends along with about every other girl in the school reads your blog ALL DAY LONG. We have this really weird system that blocks websites and last year it blocked your blog for a day or two and literally every single girl in the school like cried about it!!! haha:) We got our computers back on the first day and the first thing I did was check to see if the blog was unblocked and it wasn’t and I was like “omg Amber’s blog is unblocked!!!” and everybody like cried tears of joy hahahaha!!!! We love you and your blog!!! It keeps us going throughout the school day for real.

  2. Hi! Could u please post a sample schedule of Rosie’s day? I am amazed she is sleeping for 3 hours during the day. My baby is one week younger than Rosie and I would love to know how you do it?

  3. This sounds like the most wonderful morning besides rush hour because that is never fun. I love Rosie’s little outfit and your sunglasses – both adorable!

    Ps. Did you ever do the post about David’s hair?

  4. So fun! Bummer the water lab was closed, but looks like you had an amazing time regardless!

  5. David is such an amazing photographer!! Did he studied photography?? Your so lucky to have him

  6. Hi Amber! You guys have such a beautiful family! I loved the pics and the place! Want to go there when I go to NYC! 🙂 By the way, I’ve sent you a message through the “contact – have a question”… Can I hope for an answer soon? Thank you!!

  7. Hello Amber, you are truly inspiring. I’m starting a business and have hired a nanny part time to allow for “business time” but I end up using the time up cleaning and running errands. How do you do it? You make it seem so easy. David seems to help a lot. My husband works like 60 hours a week so it’s basically me and my 21 month old. BTW, did I mention I’m 7 months pregnant? Yup. Please help.

  8. I cant get over how cute your kids are!! Atticus makes the cutest faces! And you look adorable with your hair in a high ponytail

  9. Hi Amber! I have never left comment before, but I just wanted to say I really enjoy your blog 🙂 I have followed your suggestions on many beauty items (like the Moroccan Oil serum, No. 7 foundation and even hair extensions) and am so happy with them. I do have one question though… I see this bright orange nail color in many of your pictures. What is it!? I am so in love!

    Thank you!

  10. This looks like so much fun for not only the little ones but the parents too!

  11. That sounds like such a fun day! I’m hoping to visit New York City sometime in the future! Love you and your adorable family so much xoxo

    1. Yeah, the only time Rosie is sad is when she doesn’t get a nap on time. Atticus is cranky if he doesn’t get his full nap! My kids love their sleep!

  12. Same thing happened to me over the weekend but with the pool. I got ready, sunscreen on and all and drove the 20 minutes to the local pool and boom closed!! Glad to see you guys had fun at the pier anyways, the photo of Atticus with your sunglasses on upside down is the best!

  14. The kids are so cute and I love how you still made the day fun even though the plan didn’t go the way you wanted it to. Love the blog!

  15. We might be moving to Brooklyn Heights which is super close to Pier 6 so this makes me happy that we will have a great play area close by for the kids! Are Atticus and Rosie on the same schedule? I know you’re not a mommy blog but PLEASE make a post about their schedules and any differences/similarities between how Atticus was at Rosie’s age? Pregnant with number two over here and would love to know what to expect/any advice! #2under2

  16. Oh my goodness, these photos are the cutest things. I love the one of your little boy with your sunglasses on upside down. Capturing precious memories in beautiful images. 🙂

  17. What a beautiful backdrop for a fun morning at the playground! Stunning pictures as always 🙂

  18. Lovely Amber! Rosie is bigger and she starts palying with A, they look similar 🙂

  19. 3 hour naps? Girl, what is your secret?! I have twins that are Rosie’s age, and I WISH they took 3 hour naps! 🙂 Your adventures inspire me to get out there with my babies and I think of your LONG flights when I’m on a plane with whining twins….Longest we have done is 6 hours. Cheers!

  20. Such cute pictures! It looks like you definitely made the best our of your situation 🙂 Your kids are lucky to have you. Love Atticus’ shirt! Where is it from?

  21. Rosie’s little hat is the cutest! Looks like such a fun place to play with the kiddos – and your views are amazing as always. Sending my love!! xox Noella
