This weekend the forecast called for rain, rain and you guessed it, rain! We spent a leisurily Saturday morning around the house just relaxing, but when the clock hit noon I decided we had to do something with the day! There are only so many weekends this summer and we need to take advantage. With cute outfits on and umbrellas in hand we head into Brooklyn!
I went bold with a little stripe on stripe action! I was pretty obsessed with my new striped shirt. Super comfy, can be dressed up or down and only $12.99! I got it in two colors!
Jon’s sister just moved into a new apartment, which we wanted to check out and we were delighted to learn that Smorgasburg! Smorgasburg is a food market where there are typically a 100 vendors for you to choose from! Yes, there was rain not every vendor was there, but it was still fun to go to.
The rain was coming and going so, we had a chance to get food and even eat outside by the water. When we walked in I immediately saw Thai Bird and that they had fried chicken with pineapple! Two things I love! Let me tell you it did not disappoint. So yummy!
For dessert there was a lot of options, but again I knew immediately what I wanted! Hello churros ice cream sandwich by Dulcinea!
After our lunch and checking out Aunt Jenn’s swanky apartment we headed across the bridge into the city to check out Pier 17 at the Seaport. There was a massive balloon display by Geronimo! I have always wanted to see one in person and it did not disappoint.
After we enjoyed the balloon display and watched the boats go by in the water we ventured off to Battery Park to ride the Sea Glass Carousel. I had been once before with the boys, but they were little and I didn’t think they remembered it. Plus Jon never got to enjoy it. It’s truly magical! I’m dying to go to it at night.
Even though we had a late start to the day we jam packed the afternoon with activities and everyone had a blast!
On Sunday we were again met with rain and this time with the exhaustion of Hudson having night terrors during the night and up every hour or so we decided to again take it easy at home. Everyone was enjoying their downtime, but I figured eventually the boys would need to run off their energy. So, Jon checked the weather and saw that there was no rain in the forecast at the beach! We got ready quickly and headed out right when the down pour started at home. It poured the majority of the way to the beach, but the forecast was right. A couple of minutes before we hit the beach the skies opened up and the sun was shining. It was a perfect beach day!
We ended up staying all day! Another family drove on next to us and had kids, which made my boys super happy. I swear they were best friends in a matter of seconds.
It was truly a lovely day the beach. The kids played in and out of the water for hours, no fights, Jon tried to fish, but nothing was bitting and I got to finish Ghosted and started The Intermission. Ghosted took me a while to get into, but I ended up liking it in the end. The Intermission on the other hand sucked me in right away and I can’t put it down.
All in all a wonderful weekend!
