This weekend felt like we were back in our old, comfortable, enjoyable groove. We had a good mix of downtime: playing legos, doing artwork, reading, school projects. The weather has been just perfect, and as anyone who’s ever experienced a NYC winter would agree, I think we all appreciate these gorgeous, sunny early fall days.
On Saturday we got on the bikes and headed to Central Park. It was a beautiful ride. We had lunch at the Ballfield Cafe. (I tried to take a panorama picture and caught Julian eating a ghost dog…)
The we laid low on Sheeps Meadow.
Uncle Brian met us, and we played soccer and ate ice cream.
That night Jeff and I went on a dinner date here in our neighborhood.
Sunday we started out with coffee and waffles. Then I went to Trader Joe’s – something that prior to working again I would have never attempted on the weekend. But now that we have a new normal, it’s actually not so bad. I felt very accomplished afterwards, and my bike helped carry home my load.
Then we headed out for a pizza lunch at Fornino’s at Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
The boys played at Pier 6 while Jeff and I bummed around…
Then we went to Farmacy for ice cream. Espresso-infused milkshakes for the grown-ups.
We rode our bikes around the neighborhoods and admired all the spooky houses. The boys are so excited for Halloween – including a little Halloween party they are planning for their best friends. I love their excitement; it makes everything more fun.
