Return to Photoville in Brooklyn.
Henry and I headed to Brooklyn yesterday to celebrate our friend Joyce’s birthday while Jacqui attended a concert uptown with a friend. Along the way we spotted some fish.

More highlights of my family’s visit are seen below. Saturday we had a picnic at Sheep Meadow in Central Park. Sunday, we went to a barbeque in Brooklyn at Miranda and Alex’s house. They were great hosts and the kids played and played and played. Although most of our activities were centered around two-year-olds, my sister Julie and nephew Blue were able to sneak away for a night in Times Square and also attended a Yankees game on Sunday night. We missed them all a lot when they left Tuesday afternoon.

My family from Wyoming arrived on Thursday night and will be visiting for the long holiday weekend. Friday was a nice day exploring Brooklyn Bridge Park.

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 had previously been to Coney Island when we met Jacqui at the finish line of the Brooklyn Half-Marathon, but he didn’t have the chance to visit the amusement parks or play on the beach. Since his cousin Shannon had never been, we decided to pay a visit, making it Henry’s first actual time at a beach and in the ocean.
Just in case it was unclear where we went.
