The Virgin Mother



On our way to the park yesterday, we stumbled on this HUGE "Bodyworld" style sculpture right on Park Avenue in Midtown. It's called The Virgin Mother and most be at least 30 feet.



We resumed our trek to the park on the bus, and noticed a zebra casually crossing the street at one of the lights. You don't see that every day. Upon further inspection we noted a film crew and movie set at that spot.



Charlotte loved kicking her legs on a blanket at the park and was full of huge smiles until the camera came out of course.



We've made this our favorite spot, at the southernmost tip of the Great Lawn. It was a fabulous summer evening. I can't believe it's taken us three years to start going to Central Park! We can thank Charlotte, she begs us to leave the apartment every day so she can see all the cool stuff around her.

I want that headband!! Where did you find it?

How great to see a Zebra walking across the street too .. .

I'm glad I'm not the only who has a child who doesn't smile when a camera is around.
