Henry had a laid back Tuesday with a visit from our neighbor, Gabe and two trips to the sprinklers. He has enjoyed playing with the new dump trucks Aunt Juj and Cousin Mae sent to us over the weekend.

Henry spent his Saturday afternoon visiting with constituents (and birds) on the Great Lawn in Central Park. A group of older men that he passed committed to voting for Henry. After Henry gave them fives and waved, one of the fellows said, “I’d vote for you!” Henry turned on the charm and should get some great returns during the primaries.
Henry and I met our friend Dina at the Brooklyn Bridge Park to hang out at the Pre-Party for the upcoming Brooklyn Half Marathon. Henry enjoyed the free sports drink samples so much that he might be better prepared for the race than Dina and me. He got plenty of electrolytes in his system and as the vendor pointed out, “luckily it is all sugar free.”
Now that spring has arrived, there are many free activities all over our neighborhood. Henry and I went to play time at Wagner Park (a park within Battery City) today. It is an open play time for two hours with lots of different toys and kids that are Henry’s age and a little older. We took a Shake Shack break on the way home.

My second Mother’s Day started with mimosas and omelets from Chef Mark Cousin. The mimosas made us tired, but we were still able to enjoy the wonderful weather with a trip to Prospect Park in Brooklyn, followed by a long nap. It was a great day and I am thankful for the two special men in my life.
It was rainy most of the day, but once it eventually stopped we took advantage of the day’s milder temperatures with a walk through the neighborhood and then back on the Tribeca boardwalk portion of Hudson River Park.
