More highlights from Henry’s and my trip to Wyoming are seen in this photo gallery. Henry was able to visit most people in my family and everyone really enjoyed seeing him again, especially since he got really sick last time we visited (before he was one year’s old).

We had a nice time with Aunt Suzanne during her visit. Unfortunately, today was bitter cold so we were unable to go outside for too long. Henry and I were able to show her Grand Central Terminal which she had only visited once before.
We compiled some highlights of her visit in the gallery below.

My Aunt Suzanne arrived from Wyoming today. Aunt Sue met Henry in Wyoming last spring, but Henry was not feeling well at the time. He seemed to open up to her right away and we had a nice night eating out at Sole di Capri (formerly Café Capri). We hadn’t been to this restaurant since before Henry was born, so it was nice to return to an old favorite. Since there’s bitter cold here now and an expected snowstorm coming, Aunt Sue did not escape bad weather by leaving Wyoming, but we still hope to have an eventful weekend.

There were several Halloween events in our neighborhood yesterday. We were intent on joining a small parade that marches down Greenwich Street. This is a chance for all the kids in the neighborhood to dress up and walk to Washington Market while showing off their costumes. Henry and Mae both decided to take their naps shortly after we lined up.
On Sunday afternoon we went for another short walk and discovered a one-room museum, MMuseumm, tucked away in a freight elevator in a small alley in Tribeca. As a belated birthday gift, Julie and I were also able to go to dinner at her favorite dining spot, Les Halles. Thanks to Mark for watching both babies.
Today will be the saddest day of the visit, Julie and Mae are leaving this afternoon.

This Empire St. Bldg./King Kong parent/child costume was a definite hit.
