Weekend Scenes

It's been a good weekend over here. The weather was that perfect end-of-summer kind, where it was hot but you know that, at least on the East Coast, it's all coming to and end sooner than you'd like, so you don't care much. We spent all three days out and about.

Friday night we went to dinner and then spent some time at the park. Luca fell asleep as soon as we got home, so we wound up watching two episodes of Homeland and I'm even more addicted as time goes on. 

On Saturday, Karen and I took Luca up to Muscoot Farm for the morning. It's small and manageable and the perfect size for toddlers. And while he seemed to like checking out the animals and told us all the sounds they make, the highlight for my almost 2-year-old was all tractors. I swear, I don't know how this kid got so obsessed with all things trucks, cars, trains, farm equipment...

After the farm, we went for lunch and then to Blue Pig for ice cream. I hadn't ever been and they have a cute little outdoor patio that also houses kid-sized chairs and tables. The mojito sorbet was everything. My food photography skills are lacking, but the ice cream definitely wasn't. 

When we got home Luca took a 2 hour nap, so I had some downtime to write and watch TV and, eventually, actually straighten up the house, while John was on a hike with my brother.

On Sunday, we went to a local diner for breakfast, which we haven't done in forever. Again, excuse the badly lit food photography here, but you know, it was a diner. After that we decided to go for a long walk over at Rockefeller State Park, which has the best views of the Hudson River.

All these fun things were mixed with some cleaning and laundry and putting painter's tape up on the living room wall to figure out the best way to lay out some pictures. There was a quick trip to Zara and an afternoon at my parents house where John and Carmine pulled up a rug and we ate pasta and fresh tomato salad.

Here's to a week that's as good as the weekend.
