Book Boat

We took a short walk to Pier 25 where the LILAC Steamship is docked and for a limited time is host to a floating library.

Henry at the helm:
Helmsman

Art Connoisseur

We visited a few art galleries in Chelsea (and the West Village) today. In particular, we wanted to show Henry an exhibit by the sculptor, Nancy Rubins called “Our Friend Fluid Metal” which is made from countless salvaged playground toys.

The other highlight was a show called “Multiple Personalities” by Rob Pruitt at Gavin Brown’s enterprise in the West Village.

Bubbles, Bubbles, Everywhere

Henry had his final celebration for his second birthday at daycare today. Maryellen has a party for each child on or around their birthday including, bubbles, candles, and balloons in whatever color is chosen by the child. Henry chose orange, blue and well, whatever color was closest to him, so Maryellen used a variety of colors. Readers may recall that Henry was just learning to walk last year at this time and began taking consistent steps without falling at his daycare party last year. I was lucky enough to be there and see it.
