We attended another barbecue at our friend, Miranda’s, on Saturday and Henry had fun hanging out in the hammock and meeting new friends. Sunday, we went to a nice brunch to celebrate Mark’s and my fifth wedding anniversary.

We went to Madison Square Park and environs to sample the food and music at the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party. There were chefs/pitmasters from all over the country and opportunities to try all different regional styles. Even Henry, who’s sometimes a picky eater, couldn’t resist the ribs and pulled pork.
Henry took hundreds of photos during the bbq (mostly of grass and feet) including these images of Eamonn (interspersed with my behind-the-scenes shots of their photoshoot).
Henry grabbed the camera again during Saturday’s bbq, this time randomly activating the High Contrast Monotone setting which resulted in the sequence below.

We went to a barbecue in Brooklyn on Saturday as a send-off for our friend, Mimi who’s going to Los Angeles for work for a few months. Then on Sunday we celebrated Father’s Day and the birthday of another of Henry’s daycare friends, Billie, who celebrated hers at La Plaza Cultura, a community garden in the East Village/Lower East Side.

We went to a BBQ in Brooklyn hosted by our friends, Alex and Miranda on Saturday. We got a chance to socialize a bit and Henry saw some more dogs up close.

Henry’s still a little wary around dogs. (Frank, the chihuahua is in the background.)
