take me out to the ball game

June 12, 2017


we recently took the kids to their first baseball game ever–the mets versus the pirates! nate and i are mets fans… even though that is only truly because we have never been to a yankees game. not necessarily by choice, but because it always seems to work out that we make it to a mets game versus a yankees game, therefore we have become mets fans. we both grew up in atlanta so we are historically braves fans, but we have since transitioned away from the tomahawk chop.

the kids were so excited about the night’s game. we were too, although a 7:30pm game seemed a bit ambitious with these 3, but we decided to tackle it.  Continue Reading…

happy birthday alexa!

May 22, 2017

i can’t believe this girl is already seven years old. how did that go by so fast? it seems like yesterday we were celebrating her rock n roll two-year-old birthday party on the west side highway! dance parties are a theme, clearly. two years ago we celebrated at this very same spot–downtown dance factory. she loved it so much she asked to go back this year… nate and i were both fully onboard as they make dance parties SO easy for the parents.

snapshots on film

May 5, 2017

who knew a disposable camera would be so novel? i’ve blogged about this before, but we recently developed a new batch of photos so i thought i would post some of my favorites. i love how a bad photo can often be an amazing photo… i guess its truly in the eye of the beholder.

nate doesn’t think these are so great, but i love them because they are from alexa and hayden’s point of view. most of the pitcures turn out pretty awful, but i think these are pretty great.

play in plae

April 27, 2017


i’ve been meaning to write about these kids shoes for awhile. we were given some plae shoes as a gift awhile back and i have continually bought their shoes since. they. are. the. best.

our kids are obsessed with them. in a nutshell, they are flexible, breathable, eco-friendly, machine-washable and are specifically designed for the natural development of a child’s feet. so overall, a win for all. bonus for the kids is the huge range of color options. below are a couple of the styles we have and love.  Continue Reading…

bridgehampton beach

April 24, 2017


i’m so in love with these photos. i love nate’s photos in general, but i especially love when he shoots on his film cameras. there is a magical quality to those… there is a depth to the image that just doesn’t happen in digital photos. i told him that he isn’t allowed to shoot digital anymore on family outings, only film from here on out! he is not 100% sold on that idea, but the proof is in the pictures! enjoy. xx

little hideaways

January 11, 2017


it snowed a lot in nyc this past weekend… all day long i saw adorable posts on social media of parents outside playing in the snow with their kids–sledding, building snowmen, etc. i feel a little lame as i declared it a “stay indoors as much as possible” weekend! it was freaking cold!! thankfully its not too hard to make staying indoors fun.  Continue Reading…

i’m pretty sure every parent in nyc cheered a little when they heard the abc carpet and home santa was back this year. last year they had announced his retirement, but they thankfully brought him back for 4 sundays this december! the lines have always been long, but this year was legit… and to top it off, nate took one for the team and took the kids on his own… Continue Reading…

our adventures abroad…

November 26, 2016

normally, it takes me a bit to gather images and document a trip, but i felt it necessary to immediately write about our adventure to germany because, if i didn’t, i would potentially forget/block from my memory some of the dirty details. for those of you who follow me on instagram you are probably thinking it was a dreamy getaway with family… some of you may even have thought what rockstars we were for taking on this adventure… well, sorry to say we had you fooled. not intentionally of course, but simply because i didn’t photograph the doctors visit, the 24 hour stomach viruses and all the chaotic travel scenarios. i kinda wish i would have at least documented it on snapchat, but the truth is i didn’t have enough hands to manage that or enough time between each scenario! so… here goes, our 2016 german adventure, in all its glory….

life on the farm

October 29, 2016

i was trying to divide up this post into multiple posts, but time is not on my side these days. you know that thing called “mom brain” that happens post baby… well, mine is back. i feel like i can’t even remember people’s names lately. for some reason this fall has been the busiest of my life yet. it is a combo of my job, rowan and the kid’s school. between my work emails and the school emails that fill up my inbox everyday its enough to make anyone go a little nutty. on that note, i would like to make special request to the powers that be at the kids school–for those of us with TWO kids in the same school, it would be great if everything was prefaced with what grade/child the letter, email, etc is for. its hard enough to remember it all and then to remember what teacher said what or what letter wad for who!! AH.

anyway, this post is meant to be about our lovely time away at stony creek farmstead, so here we go… hoping no one will mind my photographic narrative (thanks nathan for taking all the beautiful photos as usual)! if you have any questions about the stay, shoot me a note at marissakrax@gmail! all i gotta say is, plan a trip there next spring–it is so lovely.

also, an important tip: bring rainboots or wellies
