Instagram Weekend

I always have my dslr around my neck or, as is the case lately, in my stroller basket. But, as it turns out, I'm using my iPhone even more than usual lately.

I'm currently obsessing (no exaggeration) over the
Instagram app. There's been a lot of buzz over this app, available to iPhone users only (sorry) lately and it's not difficult to see why. It's so easy to use, it's fast and you can upload your images to multiple sites all at once. Plus you get to use cool filters and it's all free.

I blogged about it a couple of weeks ago and I think I'm going to make it a regular Monday post because the truth is that my weekend can be summed up in photos from my phone just as well as my photos from my Nikon....ok, maybe not exactly, but still. My iPhone is always in my pocket and my constant companion...

How was your weekend? And, are there any apps that you're loving right now that I should try?

The weekend started with some lunch at one of our favorite little cafes in Southampton.

Then we took Lucia to the supermarket where she rode in a shopping cart - which for city kids who are used to being pushed around closer to the ground in their strollers is like a ride at an amusement park.

Peppers for dinner.

It started to rain (and didn't really stop until our last day there - of course) so I took Lucia to TJ Maax...which for her just meant more shopping cart fun!  She also likes to examine the tags and compare prices like a good Maaxinista.

Rain from inside the car.

We stopped at the beach only briefly because...it was raining.

The backyard looks like a magical forest from a fairy tale...although a bit gloomy on this afternoon.

Finally Lucia can ride her swing!  But it was freezing so she's still wearing her winter coat.  It was huge on her 3 months ago when she first started wearing it and now it's a bit snug.

We stopped for lunch on the way back to the city at a small deli.

Finally back home in bumper to bumper traffic on the FDR but we had a great view of the Manhattan Bridge.

More traffic getting close to the Brooklyn Bridge.
