On Saturday we attended two birthday parties for a couple of Henry’s daycare buddies. First Henry celebrated Halsey turning two years old in the East Village and a little later with another friend, Luca turning three years old at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum.
We attended Sierra’s fourth birthday party on the Upper West Side today. Henry drank two juice boxes, danced, threw up, became a lava monster and got a little musical for Sierra.
We returned home yesterday after our visit to New Orleans. It was a fun trip and especially nice for Henry to meet family members he hadn’t yet and to spend time with everyone in his ancestral home. Thanks to all who hosted and helped us celebrate. Here are more photos:
