This past weekend, we were oh-so-lucky to have quite a few visitors in town. Our very own papa (that’ll be John Tarleton Williams to the rest of ya) stayed with us here in Park Slope from Thursday through Sunday.
At the same time, our Aunt Susan, from San Francisco, and dad’s cousin, Sheila, were also in for a visit, as well as our Aunt Maureen, who’s often here on business.
So, all in all, this meant lots of good eating, lots of treats, and lots of walking around New York City. Yay!
Here’s the ol’ chap himself! The trip got off to a rough start when we had to spend time chastising pa for making the silly decision to shave his beard. I guess he desired the mustache look for Brooklyn.
Each day consisted of a very similar pattern: walk, eat, walk, eat, nap (for dad), walk and eat some more. We covered the West Village, Williamsburg, Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, the Lower East Side and Greenwich Village.
