Farewell Hug

Grandma Lois went back to Houston today after her visit. Henry enjoyed having her on hand to teach him new words and then illustrate them for him to color. We’ll all miss her but hope to see her again soon.

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.

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.

Elle’s Birthday

Elle, another of Henry’s friends from daycare, celebrated her birthday at Adam Yauch Park in Brooklyn on Saturday.

Suzanne in the City

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.
