THE OFFICIAL HOLBROOK BROOKLYN TOUR!


there was this one moment on saturday when brandon spontaneously announced to our friends in the middle of crossing the brooklyn bridge that we were now on "the official holbrook brooklyn tour!" that i knew the day was about to be pretty darn amazing. 

the official holbrook brooklyn tour! 

who even knew that existed!?



















apparently,
the official holbrook brooklyn tour includes: 

the bridge
a double chocolate chunk at the brooklyn ice cream factory
a walk up the promenade 
then down to iron chef house sushi (our favorites are the monkey rolls and iron chef spicy rolls)
and end with the famous 2/3 train back to manhattan from clark street. 

now go forth and brooklyn! 

p.s. for those who have asked
huck's shirt was a gift from petite lemon
my tee is zara, and my skirt is from madewell. ;)

    3. Not that it's at all anyone's business, but I am. That is a perfectly modest outfit where are you getting that?

    5. I'm not Mormon (and a little confused, but I looked it up) and I have to say it seems more immodest to ask someone about their underwear...on the internet. This outfit is total class.

  18. "Huck-O-Saurus" ... love it!!

  19. Do you ever read Mo Willems books to Huck? My little guy loves him. There's one, "Knuffle Bunny" (plus 2 sequels) that takes place in Brooklyn and he mixes his artwork with b&w images of Brooklyn. I bet Huck would enjoy! Mama too; his books are super cute.

  20. Great photos. Yes, ice-cream is the new health food.

  21. Ahhh! That shirt is ADORABLE.

  22. So fun! I was in New York for like 24 hours earlier this year and walking across the Brooklyn Bridge was amazing.

    P.S. I know one of the owners of the Gran Electrica taco place you put up there! He is my husband's cousin's husband. Does that even make sense? :)

  39. Regarding that garment comment: if I wore a shirt that low-cut, you'd see, like three inches of my garments. Seeexxxxyy. But that's because I have gross third-trimester boobs I've started to consider carrying around in the crook of my arm. You know those wheeled platforms for dogs whose back legs don't work? I'd take one now for the front half of my body. A large platform for baby with an upper shelf for the girls. UGH. But it just goes to show, when you're on the petite end of the spectrum garments will be A LOT more forgiving.

  40. Garments: like everything else in the church, it's up to you to decide how to fit them into your life. Same goes for thoughts, attitudes, entertainment, beverages (I just finished my THIRD diet Coke of the day), entertainment and its ratings, etc. It's a lot more fun to eyeball others' choices rather than our own! But in the end, our choices are strictly between us and the Lord. And there's nothing to be gained by speculating on others' choices and the Lord's opinion of them. You do know, though, that I hate you and your skinny little body right now, seeing as I weigh 15 pounds more than I did six months ago, right? ;)

  41. Can you please do a tutorial on how you get that much of a blurred background on images where there is a fairly large focused area (ie. where you're standing)? I can only manage it when I take a picture of online sombodies head... and I have a similar camera (Canon T3) and the same lens (you still use the 50mm 1.8?).

    ReplyDelete
  42. I absolutely love your photos. You have such an artistic eye. I always thought anyone with a good camera could take good pictures...then I got a good camera and realized that wasn't the case!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love his Huck a Saurus t-shirt!! So cute! That sushi looks awesome too.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I was just there! The Brooklyn Bridge was one of my favorite things in New York. Your photos are GORGEOUS. You really did the bridge justice. And it helps that you are much cuter than I am in your pictures! :) What a fun day-- thanks for sharing.

  45. huck-o-saurus! I love it! And I agree that ice cream is the new health food.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This looks so fun! :)

  48. I am going to NYC next week so thank you for this post. I have never been to Brooklyn and so now it's on my list to visit. Also, you rock those polka dots so well!
