We are filling up the last few weekends of summer with plenty of activities. Friday evening, Henry was reunited with a few of his daycare friends at a picnic in Battery City Park. It was nice to see Wren, Sigourney and Aubrey (with parents) for some play time. We hope to continue the reunions semi-regularly as more of the families from daycare return from summer trips and other obligations.
Saturday, we went across the river to Eamonn and Emily’s neighborhood in Jersey City for La Festa Italiana. This is an annual event that raises money for the Holy Rosary Church. It is much like a street fair/carnival with better, more authentic Italian food, cheap wine with peaches and gambling involved. Henry had fun hanging out with the grownups and winning an alien from a baseball throw.
Henry had a full weekend. On Saturday, we went to New Jersey to a gender reveal party at the Lindner’s. They found out their third baby will be a boy. They already have two girls.
Sunday afternoon we went to a birthday party for our neighbor/Henry’s friend, Sebastian, who turned 3. It was a great party at The Little Gym and Henry had lots of fun, jumping, running, and falling.
Henry had a Sunday playdate with Isla. We had a nice time strolling around the neighborhood and eating an early dinner at Hudson Eats. The two kids got along swell and Jessica and I couldn’t help but be proud of them.
