The Williams family is going to Wales. We’re going for a reunion in Ireland, but this year, before the reunion, we’re going to spend a few days in Wales. Actually, to be honest we’re amazingly hazy about the details of where we’ll be for the next two weeks. We just know that we get on a plan to Dublin tonight and meet mom and dad in the airport Friday morning. Ah, the joys of having someone else (a mama) plan your vacation. (Normally, we are very independent. Promise).
But first: A summary of a NYC springFirst rooftop party of the season The Brooklyn Museum when mom visited. A Memorial Day picnic in Prospect Park. Bear print coffee.
After a sister brunch one Sunday at Butcher’s Daughter (not pictured) in the Lower East Side, we met up with a friend. Then because there’s nothing better than Sunday brunch we decided to have second brunch with him in SoHo. And then, because apparently we couldn’t think of anything better to do, we headed to the third restaurant of the day. In our defense, the third stop was only treats and coffee at Russ & Daughters.
Anna is attempting to eat at every top rated barbecue restaurant in NYC with Eric.
First homemade barbecue. Katie joined a Brooklyn softball league this Spring. Anna and Vic were their biggest fans and never missed a game. Sadly their record was 0-8. Katie was never in a good mood Saturday afternoons. Real heartbreakers, those games.
With my flexible schedule, I went home to Chicago for a week in May. Having not been home in a year and a half, our block never looked so beautiful.
And Mom greeted me at the front door. A lone triplet gets lots of attention.
Getting out of work at 12:15pm hasn’t been nearly so bad with the warm nights… and blooming trees.
It only took a year, but Anna finally let me visit her at work. I definitely can understand the appeal of a start-up. No cubicles and free snacks all day, every day! (But I’ll still take the free pudding and crackers we get at the hospital. )
Spring breeze through the open windows. Fleet Week! With a patriotic Empire State Building.
