Weekend Roundup

Fall is a busy season for cultural events in the city and Henry is at a fun age to start attending some of them. Photoville is an ongoing photography exhibit with gallery space inside shipping containers on the Brooklyn waterfront.

Let’s be honest though, Henry would much rather climb on playground equipment than look at a photos. Attending cultural events is mainly for parents to enjoy an adult activity and if we can possibly spark some interest from Henry, it’s an added bonus. It is nice when the two combine a little bit as in the Sesame Street exhibit (see previous post).

On another note, while walking home from the playground on Sunday, we passed by the firehouse (FDNY Tower Ladder 1/Engine 7) in our neighborhood. We just happened to turn Henry in the direction of the firetrucks, and an incredibly nice (and handsome too) firefighter, Patrick invited us into the firehouse for closer look at the firetrucks. Henry was very excited and it really made me appreciate all the firefighters of New York City.

Nice Day in the Neighborhood

Another freezing day in New York meant we were not able to do too much. Ona got a haircut and the two of us were able to have a nice lunch together while Mark watched Henry. We all spent a bit of time at Barnes and Noble so Henry could roam and read and then I made dinner. Nothing to write home about, but nice to be together for the day.
