We had an eventful Saturday. I ran the Brooklyn Half Marathon first thing. I came home to get my boys and we went to the 20th Annual Taste of Tribeca. This was our sixth time attending the food festival and since Henry never stops moving, it is a little harder to sit and enjoy and the food. We were still able to enjoy a nice sampling of many local restaurants.
After attending the food festival, we headed to SoHo for a birthday party for a friend, Evan, at the Scholastic store. Afterwards, we enjoyed a few beers with the Studleys. Henry and Hudson shared some quality time running around and yelling at one another. Luckily, it was a quiet Saturday afternoon at the bar and the bartenders were very accommodating.

Henry and I met our friend Dina at the Brooklyn Bridge Park to hang out at the Pre-Party for the upcoming Brooklyn Half Marathon. Henry enjoyed the free sports drink samples so much that he might be better prepared for the race than Dina and me. He got plenty of electrolytes in his system and as the vendor pointed out, “luckily it is all sugar free.”
Now that spring has arrived, there are many free activities all over our neighborhood. Henry and I went to play time at Wagner Park (a park within Battery City) today. It is an open play time for two hours with lots of different toys and kids that are Henry’s age and a little older. We took a Shake Shack break on the way home.

My second Mother’s Day started with mimosas and omelets from Chef Mark Cousin. The mimosas made us tired, but we were still able to enjoy the wonderful weather with a trip to Prospect Park in Brooklyn, followed by a long nap. It was a great day and I am thankful for the two special men in my life.
Our friend Jon stopped by this afternoon for a few games of chicken involving Henry’s toy cars which resulted in some head-on collisions.
