We had the kids this weekend - our eight year old niece and three year old nephew - and we had them overnight at our house for the very first time! We've had our nephew for sleepovers before but not our niece, so we were a little nervous but it worked out great! A few days before, well, ok, the morning of, we grabbed our latest copy of Time Out New York and checked out the kids section and lo and behold, found out that it was Fleece Fest at Prospect Park!
"Don't you think they would love to go to a knitting festival?!!!!" I asked my husband...
Sunday morning came and we took the kids out for breakfast at a local diner before heading to the subway... where Manhattan bound trains were not operating.
Plan B! Fleece Fest!
It was really a lot of fun and the zoo was great for the kids - we arrived just in time for the sea lion feeding, then happened to catch a presentation called something like "close encounters" where we got to pet a lizard, a turtle and a chicken. The zoo is not big so we did the whole thing in about three hours, including lunch - perfect for little kids where the Bronx Zoo might be a bit overwhelming and tiring. We then headed to the park for a bit before taking the kids back home. A very successful weekend all in all!
Today was a beautiful spring day, and I took a little walk in the neighborhood and to our local "Epicerie" to get some bread.
So pretty! The top right hand photo is my new "wallpaper" on my iPhone.
I'm going to hear either a "maybe" or a "not yet" tomorrow on something that I really want to be a resounding "yes!" The beautiful weather today allowed me to hope that maybe I will hear maybe and maybe that maybe will turn into a yes. And even a no is really just a not yet that could turn into a maybe and then a yes.
