Enjoying a break from her busy Broadway schedule,  Ashlee Simpson joined husband  Pete Wentz and little Bronx Mowgli for a winter outing in New York City on Wednesday (December 9).

Not letting the cold and windy weather deter the day’s plans, the happy family made their way to a nearby playground in Manhattan for a little time on the swingset to go with a walk around their Big Apple neighborhood.

As previously reported by Gossip Center, Ashlee just recently kicked off her stage duties for “Chicago”, in which she plays the character of heart-stealing jailbird Roxie Hart.

With shows running through February 7th, Miss Simpson wrote to fans on Sunday, “Woo first week of CHICAGO..It’s so warm and fuzzy there! The cast has made me feel at home.. LOVE! Thanks to the peeps comin to the shows!x”
