Best links of the week

It's nice ending the week on a high note and heading into the first weekend of summer with a drink recipe that is sure to absolutely kill it. You can't ask for much more than that. (Except perhaps a decent forecast. But we're not going to push it.) Here's the best of this week... Two awesome apps our kids downloaded this week (that we love as much as they do)- Toca Life City and Loopimal Lego is investing $1 billion in making the iconic plastic bricks more sustainable by 2030. Here's to hoping they'll somehow hurt less underfoot. City Museum in St. Louis is the coolest thing we'd never heard about. Seriously. This Quora thread is full of wisdom for new AND seasoned parents. What is it that nobody tells you about having children? Why parenting advice is so hard to take. A NY Mag essay that totally hits home. If the intro to Judd Apatow's just released book Sick in the Head is any indication, we'll be done with the rest by Sunday. This week's episode of The Longest Shortest Time may be the best one yet. (Grab some tissues.) Have Fun!
