hello! happy monday! last saturday morning we went out to dumbo for one of our little friend’s birthday party. the forecast said thunderstorms all day but the rain looked like it was holding off, so we decided to stay in brooklyn and make a day out of it. we rode the ferry from dumbo to williamsburg and ate ourselves silly at smorgasburg, brooklyn’s flea food market.
^^^practicing our balance beam walk while we wait for the ferry.^^^
^^^outside the window of the ferry! i had never taken the ferry before. such a fun way to get around out there for sure. samson was asleep for our ferry ride so i’m anxious to get back out there again soon. he loves to point and say ‘boh! boh!” when he sees boats. i know he’d love it.^^^
^^^riding under the brooklyn bridge.^^^
^^^being totally not safe (i know) inside the ferry. it was a par-tay.^^^
^^^and hello smorgasburg!^^^
^^^we tried so many little plates of delicious food… we shared brisket and pulled pork sandwiches, fries (with white cheddar dip), some mac and cheese, a few different homemade sodas (our favorite was the apple ginger) and a couple treats too (of course).^^^
^^^mac and cheese from milk truck. we got one of the last orders riiiiiight before they ran out! i mean, no rain and then this? it was a good day.^^^
^^^sister napped while samson walked all over the place. he makes the best faces while he walks around proudly. after i uploaded these i noticed the people behind him watching. i think that’s my favorite part. they are such little riots when they first start walking (with zombie arms and happy “i’m doing it!” squeals, it’s pretty fun to watch!^^^
^^^dough! perhaps winning out donut plant as my favorite donut? they were out of my favorite (lemon poppyseed) but this one was pretty darn amazing. please ignore my claw like hands in this photo. i’m not much of a hand model i suppose.^^^
^^^and i’d like to think my kids are pretty good at sharing and taking turns. but this mango lassi pop proved to be too much for their little toddler will power. they both were obsessed with it and neither wanted to let go of the handle. hahaha. we had to scoop a little into the cap for eleanor so they each “had one.” let’s just say, it was a really good lassi pop.^^^
we really like stuffing ourselves with ridiculous amounts of good food so…. be back soon, smorgasburg!
