Finally. But it was almost too warm too soon. We left the apartment Saturday morning for an excursion to the Prospect Park Zoo and within a block, started taking off our coats, vests and sweaters, only to haul it with us for the rest of the day. We gave the girls the choice between the zoo or the aquarium and of course got indecisive flip flopping, so we chose the cheaper option (it’s the recession, damn it). I love how Claudine will look over at her big sister to see what she’s doing and try and imitate her. It seriously killed me when she peered over at Mia and then put her hand up to her face after they both plopped down on the bag at the bus stop, all the while glancing over to see if she was “doing it right”. Mia looked appropriately bored, but little C looked so funny with that little hand on her face, as she sort of missed the whole point of leaning on your hands when you’re waiting around with nothing to do.
Ok, so I know that the weekend was just one big tease to better days as it’s supposed to get colder and wetter this week and next, but still, the whole world was outside. But it was weird to run around in a t-shirt feeling even too hot at times, and see chunks of snow and ice in parts of the zoo. Can you believe we were blanketed with nearly a foot of snow just 5 days ago? What the hell, weather, what else you got up your sleeve?
