Just back from a lovely trip to the Smithsonian, where they had a "family day", complete with art activities (which the girls loved), and actual artists -- including the one who did these great caricatures of Kate and Ali! (in about 5 minutes each. Impressive!)
Kate celebrated her 7th birthday at the Children's Museum of the Arts in SOHO. In addition to making puppets, the children put on an impromptu puppet show! They also got exclusive use of the museum's gigantic exercise ball-pit. For more photos, click on album to the left.
