Weekend and NYC Tips!

Yesterday we took the subway all the way down to the Financial District. We were supposed to get off at Chamber street, but this day the train decided to keep going, past our station (can be good to know, this is common in New York City, especially on the weekends).

I sat and across from my little family and admired them. So incredibly cute!!

So instead of Chamber Street, we had to get off at World Trade Center and we came above ground right under the Freedom Tower. Pretty cool from below.

We were invited for lunch at Celeste's godmother's house, Celeste Lee. When I lived in New York in the 90's, I met Celeste and for one thought she was super sweet and also thought she had one of the nicest names in the world. So I decided that if I ever had a daughter, I would name her Celeste. 

When Micke and I had our first daughter, we were convinced that her name would be Celeste (which means both sky-like and baby blue). Micke and no one else for that matter, caught on to the name in the beginning. But I did, and start calling my baby Celeste. "I'm going to change Celeste now" or "Celeste needs to sleep now", for example. It's also pretty hard to change the name of a baby when you've already started calling it something hehe.


Celeste loves her name and ever since she was a little girl she has gotten to hear "what a pretty name you have". When I named Celeste to Celeste there were only 7 girls named Celeste in all of Sweden (According to www.scb.se). Now there are 261. 

The view from big Celeste's (like we call her) window. Not bad huh?!

After that we walked up the hudson river...another great New York Tip. It's a wonderful walk along the water and perfect for a view of the sunset.

We stopped at a playground, with a view!

And then we went to The Standard (Cool hotel), which has a little skating rink in the winter, that children love. The rink is right under the High Line!

For adults who don't want to skate, there is a lovely little kiosk that sells Gluhwein, waffles and hot chocolate with marshmallows for kids!
