First Fall Saturday

Henry and I stopped at the Mmuseumm in August. He has been talking about it several times since so we decided to take a leisurely stroll and stop in again today. It is a really interesting tiny museum that sits inside an old freight elevator that opens to Cortlandt Alley. The ally itself is used as a set for many movie and photo shoots. Years ago I walked by the area on my way to work every day and sometimes stopped to try to figure out what movie was being filmed and spotted a few celebrities too.

Washington Market Park shows a few movies outdoors at the end of September and last week Henry and I went to see The Princess Bride. Henry really liked Andre the Giant. Mark was able to join us for The Karate Kid this week. It is a nice, free event in our neighborhood.

Three Years Old

We celebrated Henry’s third birthday in much the same way we celebrated last year, with a party at the local playground in Washington Market Park. This year Henry was able to celebrate with his grand-dad too.

Visit from Paw Paw Butch

Henry’s grandfather, Paw Paw Butch came in from New Orleans yesterday to visit and celebrate Henry’s birthday on Saturday and his own on Sunday. Today they rode the SeaGlass Carousel in Battery Park before taking the Staten Island Ferry and returning home to have pre-birthday bear cake (as specifically requested by Henry) and play some more.
