For Halloween this year we took Henry trick-or-treating at the American Museum of Natural History after a fun day celebrating with his daycare friends. So he spent most of his day dressed as a T.Rex which was especially appropriate for the museum visit.
Henry and I ventured out of the neighborhood once again today. We went to the Prospect Park Zoo which seemed like just the right size for someone his age on their first visit to a zoo. Henry was very enamored of the birds, but got quite spooked when a mountain goat tried to lick his hand. One side note: there were cows and sheep on display. This made me laugh because I grew up seeing both animals often, but they must look exotic to city kids.
After seeing some real baboons, we went to the LeFrak Center at Lakeside, which has a big sprinkler area for kids. I can’t speak for Henry, but judging from his reactions, I would venture to say, he had a great day (so did I).
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.
Elle, another of Henry’s friends from daycare, celebrated her birthday at Adam Yauch Park in Brooklyn on Saturday.
