We lived in Boston for years after college and then moved to New Canaan 5 years ago.

I have two boys, Jack (7) and William (2.5)
 
What is your local go-to store for childrens clothes? Shoes? Furniture?
My older son Jack likes to shop at Bobs Sports and Athletic Shoe Factory for sporty New Canaan clothing. He also likes Vineyard Vines in town. I like Restoration Hardware Baby & Child on Greenwich Avenue for kids furniture.
 
What are your favorite events in New Canaan?
I love the events in town organized by The Chamber of Commerce. The Halloween Parade and The Holiday Stroll are always a great time and make you realize what a nice town we live in.
 
What are your favorite restaurants in New Canaan?
I think we have so many great restaurants in town and try to frequent them often! I love Farmers Table, South End, and Sole etc. I have a favorite dish at so many restaurants in town. I love to try new spots when they open and we have found ourselves going to the new Gates lately and they dont seem to mind my 2 year old exploring the whole time we are there, I love their Supreme Bowl.
 
What is your favorite kid-friendly recipe?
I am not the greatest cook! My husband loves to cook and even though the boys are picky eaters, he will make them homemade chicken tenders which are a big hit. He uses homemade bread crumbs and bakes them and serves with ketchup.
 
Favorite hobbies?
I love to work on things around my house, either a Do-It-Yourself project or choosing paints and fabrics to brighten up a room.
