Another packed weekend

This past weekend was also a great one, especially because of the weather. It’s incredible the things we can do once the sun starts shining again and it gets a little warmer.

On Saturday morning my mom and I went for a walk along the side the East River. We couldn’t have asked for a better view, setting, and over all atmosphere. It was so nice actually, we finished our walk, went to a near by diner, got some breakfast and went back to eat it on a bench with the incredible view. People were sun bathing, jogging, taking their dogs for walks, or just hanging out and soaking in the positive vibes. It was perfect and my mom was so enraptured by the beauty of it all that she said “wow, I think I even like NY now. Why hadn’t you brought me here before?”

We called my sister to see what they were up to and arranged to meet at Central Park for a picnic, of course everyone and their mother was there, but we couldn’t miss out. We took some water, fruit, bread, spreads, blankets and balls, and had a great time. Here are some pictures to prove it.

On Sunday we went shoe shopping, always fun, and bumped into a street fair in the UWS near my sister’s. We ate meat on a stick and crepes with strawberries and dulce de leche! I got a new plant for my home (hopefully it won’t die in a week like the other ones), and my mom bought pashminas, necklaces, and bracelets to take back home to her work team.

Over all it was a great weekend, hopefully next one will offer more great opportunities to explore and be outside!
