Part 2 of our New York holiday ended perfectly with a gorgeous weekend in the Hamptons with our cousins. The iconic tall hedges and enormous homes was mesmerizing (so mesmerizing I forgot to take pictures!).
We left the city earlier than everyone else so stopped at the famous Lobster Roll in Montauk from the showtime series, The Affair. Food was nothing to rave about but had a cute local ambiance to dining there.
Did you know they have a Levain Bakery there too? Next to it is a good local seafood shop and the famous Goldberg’s bagels which I didnt get to try but heard it was delish!
📷: Tried and true, you can freeze a cookie and when you’re ready to eat defrost and put in the oven for a bit and it’s just almost as good.
We also went to the cutest and cleanest pumpkin patch ever – Hank’s Pumpkintown. Amazing fresh apple juice!
Anyhow, I sure hope my kids are as close to my cousins as I am. #familyfirst
Oh yes, wanted to add that at 14 weeks pregnant I went to Soul Cycle for the first time. Oh my gosh so tiring but survived with the good vibes and catching Brooke Shields when we were leaving from our class. I can now say I “spun” with Brooke. 😁
Cheers for now! Thanks for reading and yes this is a place you must visit – It must be even more lovely in the summer when it’s really pool and beach weather. xx
The reunion of the kiddos this time around wasn’t as cool as going to New Zealand back in December 2016, but still a lot of fun to see them playing and conversing more with each other. They are growing up so fast! When people said to cherish all the moments with them as it will fly by, they weren’t kidding.
With a short socal holiday, we managed to squeeze in quality family time, Angel’s game, Legoland, San Diego Zoo, Carlsbad outlets, and of course In n’ out.
Tips I got from these adventures:
Stay at Legoland hotel to get the full experience along with free parking. Btw – new Legoland hotel opening 2018.
Take the double decker bus at San Diego zoo if you’re looking to walk less and perhaps catch a glimpse of the animals.
Check out the adorable pandas at the SD zoo. Only 4 zoos in the world have pandas!
It’s still fun to go early to a baseball game (besides tailgating) with kids. Angels stadium is super nice and has lots of food.
Since you’re “rolling” with kids, you can pretty much bring any food/drinks inside the parks.
Hmm – didn’t see any alcohol at Legoland. Plenty at the zoo and of course stadium.
Go shopping after these adventures if you’re wanting to spend less $$. 😜
📷: Getting a suite is a good option for a game for little ones to run around in. Suites include 12 seats.

📷: miniland of San Francisco is way cool. #mustsee
📷: spend only $.51 for a small souvenir of animal penny. Located at the exit of the zoo.
📷: Feel free to brings snacks/drinks on the bus. It’s about a 35-40 minute ride.
Good times with the munchkins and family as always.
