We attended the rehearsal dinner for our niece, Michelle’s wedding to Tyler Goff, for which Henry will be serving as ring bearer. He did really well at the rehearsal considering he did not have a real nap the whole day and we were expecting the worst. The rehearsal dinner was held at Emeril’s Delmonico and Henry held up with a great spirit until he just couldn’t keep his eyes open anymore. We are hoping for the best tomorrow for the big show.
Last night Henry encountered boiled crawfish on the menu for the first time. So far he finds them more hilarious than delicious. He enjoyed my demonstration of how to peel them and suck their heads but couldn’t bring himself to actually taste.
Dinner at Jaeger’s.
Henry took his second trip to New Orleans yesterday. He did not enjoy the plane ride, but once we exited the plane he brightened up when walking through the airport and got excited seeing Paw Paw waiting for us in the terminal.
There are many parks within walking distance of our apartment. Each park usually has a sprinkler/fountain for Henry to enjoy. It seems as though we can go to a different one each day of the week.
The doggie fountains are in an older park that we have been to many times, but hadn’t noticed the great “doggie” fountains until last week.
Readers may recall the colorful water park of Pier 25 from the famous post “Little Squirt” in May.
We went to an annual birthday picnic in Central Park for friends which allowed Henry to attempt rock climbing again. With my assistance, he reached an altitude of about 5 feet.
Mimi stopped by Friday night to say one more goodbye before she leaves for L.A. We will miss Mimi for the next few months as she has not only been a good friend, but also helped out by babysitting Henry on special occasions (birthday and anniversary dinners). We wish her best of luck in L.A., but we will surely miss her here in New York.
