Following a whirlwind week in Disney World
with dad Tom Cruise
, it was back to New York for Suri for mommy-and-me time with Katie Holmes
After being dropped off at Holmes's apartment over the weekend, the busy 6-year-old and her mother
, 33, on Monday visited the Material Lab at the Museum of Modern Art, an interactive space where kids can touch all kinds of materials and create pieces.
The pair then headed to the Sculpture Garden, where Holmes was on the phone while Suri was singing, smiling and skipping back and forth, never far from her mom – or a bodyguard.
