We were invited to a superhero themed birthday party in Central Park on Sunday for a family friend’s son, Evan. This was right up Henry’s alley as he, like many boys his age, is currently very interested in superheroes and all the powers they possess. There was also an amazing marble slide at the Billy Johnson Playground within the park.
As we have mentioned before, we have great parks right in our neighborhood, but sometimes we like to venture to different areas and parks in the city, just for fun. Yesterday we went to the Lower East Side to Seward Park. It is a big, spacious area and Henry loved exploring and climbing, as always.
We visited the Tribeca Film Festival‘s neighborhood street fair today as well as several playgrounds which allowed Henry to try a variety of activities like trying to catch one very elusive pigeon.
Today was one of two weekend days with a temperature above 40 degrees in many weeks. In celebration of this almost spring-like day, Jacob, Gabriel, Henry and I went to Washington Market Park. Henry was pretty excited to return to outside fun. I felt the same. It has been a long, long winter. Of course, these past two days were only a temporary respite as temps head back into the 30 degree range tomorrow with snow predicted for the middle of the week. After all, it is still February.
