This weekend a couple of very dear friends from Kentucky came to visit. It was so good to see them and so much fun touring around NYC. It was also very, very tiring! They left early yesterday morning and the Professor and I decided we were just too darn tired for a big hike. Instead, we went to a little park 15 minutes north of us for a nature walk. It was by far the most disappointing of the parks we’ve visited in NY. The only photo-worthy moment was this graffiti under a bridge, which I feel really sums up toddler days lately:
After our lack-luster nature walk we went out for lunch in Tarrytown and then headed to walk on the Riverwalk. On the way we saw a playground and…. a Sprinkler Park! Sabine was SO EXCITED to see the sprinklers and even though we did not have a bathing suit or a change of clothing we let her play for a solid hour. She had a blast!
While our friends were here we splurged and hired a babysitter so we could have an adult night out at Wave Hill Gardens and a dinner without having to see my boobs (still nursing). Wave Hill is my absolute favorite spot in the Bronx and I was thrilled to get to share it with them. The sunset was divine.
I tried to capture the beauty of the moment with a selfie of the professor and I and instead got this. I think this sort of sums up our relationship these days!
