Today’s activities included an excursion to the High Line, a park built on a reclaimed elevated freight train line.
Not much snow had accumulated on the ground yet but it was coming down as Henry and I made our way home.

We went to a BBQ in Brooklyn hosted by our friends, Alex and Miranda on Saturday. We got a chance to socialize a bit and Henry saw some more dogs up close.
Smooch from Mom.
Henry’s still a little wary around dogs. (Frank, the chihuahua is in the background.)

Henry took his first trip to the borough of Brooklyn Saturday night. We attended Daniel’s 5th Annual Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner. Daniel is our friend Mimi’s husband. Mimi is still in Japan (we missed her) so it was nice of Daniel to include her friends. Henry wore his bear coat for the trip on the way, of which there has been some debate. Mom thinks the bear coat is super cute and dad thinks Henry will someday resent her for dressing him in this kind of thing. Anyway, back to Henry’s first trip to Brooklyn. Despite his uncharacteristic fussiness most of the day, he behaved really well once we got to the dinner. By behaved really well, this means he slept most of the time. He really needed it. Thanks to Daniel for the great food and hospitality.

After some precautionary delays at the hospital, Henry finally took a short cab ride home where he’s resting comfortably.
