This weekend the weather in our area has been so lovely, spring-like temperatures, blue skies and sun. Even this morning when it looked as though it might rain, the sun eventually came out and the clouds cleared away. Mr. S and I have taken full advantage of this and twice visited the park and the bay.
But this morning Mr. S slept in. We’d all been out kind of late last night visiting my cousin Alex and his lovely family on the Upper West Side. We love to visit them, especially since they have the most adorable 8 month old boy ever. But it’s quite a production getting to their apartment. We left our apartment at 1:30 yesterday and didn’t arrive back home until 10:30 that night. We took three trains to get there, which Seamus hates, and by the time we arrive he’s wound up and wild and a little bit of a monster. But it’s totally worth it to spend time with family. Also, since Mr. T's Saturday class was cancelled, we had the whole day with him! It was Alex’s birthday and we met up with my Uncle Mike and Aunt Janet as well. We had a fabulous time and even brought our camera, but neglected to take a single picture. Mike and Janet gave Seamus a new house for the plastic bugs they gave him last time we visited them. This was the first thing Mr. S wanted to play with this morning. As you can see, this is also a house for dinosaurs and ducks.
After breakfast, we went back to the playground and took lots of pictures. Every time I asked Mr. S to smile for the camera, he’d squeeze his eyes closed.
We had the playground completely to ourselves, and Seamus claimed his swing right away.
Then he slid down the slide by himself and excavated some dinosaur bones with a tree branch.
Later we walked by the bay and fed the seagulls and watched the ducks on the water.
It was a lovely morning.
