Today is the one month anniversary of the move to Pelham. The kids were pretty enamored with the ‘new house’ right away and kept asking if they could stay. They love wandering around the yards and going up and down the steps. Julie especially likes looking at all the different color flowers (though she does not understand why she can’t pick them all).
We all love playing baseball and soccer in the yard.
While Mark supervised the movers Friday afternoon, we walked downtown for fro-yo and a stroller nap. The main drag is quaint and small but has some cafes, a movie theater, a yoga studio (with kids yoga classes we’ve taken), and a pretty nice grocery store.
On Father’s Day, for some reason Brittney got to sleep in while Mark took the kids out to breakfast. Then we headed to a vintage baseball game at a nearby historical mansion (just across the Bronx border, so we were technically back in NYC).
Julie was more interested in books and ice cream with Daddy than the game.
I had a lot of fun explaining the rules of baseball to math-lover Max. we all loved the vintage costumes and facial hair (poor guys, it was so sunny and hot)
After the game everyone played Rounders.
Afterward Julie and I checked out the historical mansion. She found the stairs perfect for sitting on. Next year we will be wearing these dresses (and hoping for cooler weather).
Mark said it was a great father’s day, plus he got to spend time in his new basement man cave.
