a good weekend

April 4, 2011 |  Category:   dining out family friends life


We had a good weekend, did you? The forecast beat all odds and we got the crummy wet weather out of the way Friday which made way to a gorgeously sunny weekend. Mark was back at the outdoor Flea this Saturday and it was packed since it marked the first day of the outdoor season. Sold out of most things and everyone, vendors and flea-goers alike, was so happy to be back outdoors. Nothing beats being back at the original Brooklyn Flea site. It sort of feels like the first day of school where you see all your old pals again. We will, however, be at the new Williamsburg location next Sunday to check it out.

With the Flea over on Saturday afternoon, Mark had a true day off yesterday. The girls were excited to have “Daddy Day” which started off with breakfast, the farmer’s market, then a trip to the Prospect Park Zoo and Carousel. They must have clocked a couple of miles of walking at least. I left the family after breakfast was over and headed to brunch (2 breakfasts!) to meet my friend Amy. We hardly ever go to brunch – previous tight budgeting didn’t allow – but I think we need to start up again. It really is a lovely way to start off a Sunday, isn’t it?

    Can’t wait to check out the flea out of doors–and finally try some Whimsy and Spice! It was so gorgeous this weekend. We had a lot of indoor projects to tackle but it was hard not to appreciate the sun.

    I spent 1,5 days of my weekend at work. As soon as I finished, I ran to have something Japanese for lunch and see the amazing dance photography of Chris Nash. Yes, it was a good weekend:) And brunches? I could start my days with them, breakfasts are too early.

    So nice that your girls had the Daddy day. Since PA is not too far, I will check out the flea;)

    Sat and Sun are my fav days of the week because usually means big breakfast or brunch time 🙂

    Last sunday we didn´t have time for any; hubs and I went to check the 3d animation of “Riverside scene of Qing Ming Fest” (fantastic btw). After that hubbie went back to work (he´s also a Pastry Chef like Mark) and I went for afternoon tea with a friend, may not be breakfast but…

    Looks like a lovely weekend indeed! You’re such a talented photographer. Reading your blog is like a little fix of Brooklyn.

    We were in NY this weekend (visiting from Montreal). First time for the kids. We had a wonderful time and perfect weather. I definitely want to come back soon and visit Brooklyn.
