First Time in New Orleans

We flew to New Orleans today where we’ll celebrate Henry’s actual birthday later in the week but today we celebrated his cousin, Rachael’s 21st.

Sheep Meadow

Mark, Henry and I went to another picnic in the Sheep Meadow in Central Park on Saturday. Aaron, Cara-Lynn, and Sierra Deutsch hosted. The weather has been reasonable compared to the heat wave of the previous week, so it was nice to be able to be outside and socialize.


Henry’s First Trip

Henrys_First_TripVisitors to this site may notice that it’s been about a week since the previous post. That’s because Henry and I flew to Wyoming last Wednesday. It was Henry’s first overnight trip and his first time meeting the majority of my family. My grandma organized a nice welcome dinner on Saturday so everyone could meet him. Unfortunately Henry spent most of the time fighting the sniffles and what appeared to be either allergies or a small cold. He didn’t get to spend too much time with the family, but there are a few snapshots of him trying to join the party.

We got home late Tuesday night. I will post more photos tomorrow. It was a long day of driving and flying. Henry did fine on both flights, but got pretty restless towards the end and I could tell he was pretty excited to be back with his dad, not that he didn’t love meeting his family in Wyoming. Time for bed.


Henry and me after landing in Denver. Henry did very well on his first plane ride. The two women sitting next to me said they were on their way to Laramie too. They were from Brooklyn and the daughter took this photo.
