^^^papa said, “point and smile at mama!” and eleanor of course points to the ice cream truck just out of frame. i have a feeling it’s partly why she smiled at all. ^^^
^^^i have been dying for months now to happen upon a street fair that is happening on a saturday (instead of a sunday). this one near union square was just perfect. perfect in the over priced and terribly crowded kind of way where the food smells so good and the atmosphere was so wonderful it doesn’t even matter.^^^
^^^my kids and their obsession with corn on the cob! i swear it’s all we eat at the house these days. ^^^
^^^he is my cuddle bug and i love him for it.^^^
^^^watermelon in a cup! and somehow, none of it on her shirt! a saturday miracle, for sure.^^^
^^^trying out the new citibikes! or…actually just sitting on them for a while, which is just as exciting.^^^
^^^i love this picture because it sums up both my kids on the playground so well. eleanor wanting someone to help her down the itty bitty kiddie slide, and samson just going for it. it’s interesting to see how their personalities differ.^^^
^^^we grabbed sandwiches and pasta from one of our favorite italian spots in soho, pepe rosso. always delicious.^^^
^^^and this would be my daughter thinking the diana mini camera has a self timer app. she totally stepped back a few paces and posed for the photo which she set up. we were dying.^^^
and a few things not photographed but worth noting:
eleanor has 5 or 6 tiny freckles forming on her nose and cheeks! my sun kissed baby girl, welcome to the freckle club! it is the best club. no question.
the other night over dinner, josh said to me, “i feel like there could come a time in your life where you could be a “runner.” he must have forgotten how that one time in our marriage where i tried to go running with him, i only made it half a block.
and, it’s my birthday today. 27! i’m so excited!
