We lucked out yesterday with the weather. It was supposed to be rainy, but the sky broke midday and it was suddenly sunny. It seemed like there was a lot going on around the city too: Sakura Matsuri at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, the Tribeca Film Festival Family Street Fair, the Brooklyn Food Conference here in our neighborhood (can’t remember why declined to be a vendor, argh! I think it was one of those things that got lost in the email shuffle). In the end, we decided to go to Coney Island at the last minute. It was an odd choice, but ended up being sort of perfect as the girls got to go on some rides and we got to sit by the water enjoying the ocean. Mia can never resist getting her feet wet and it validated our vacation plans this summer to spend a week on the beach on the North Fork.
