There was a lot going on in the city this weekend. Seems like so many events are packed into the late September/ early October weekends and you have your pick of things to do. After a brutal week of many many cookies that ended in a very successful day at the Chile Festival where he sold out of most everything (almost felt like holiday cookie madness times), Mark finally got a day off. It’s good to end a crazy week with a great day at an event and feel like all your hard work is validated. People were lining up to buy the Chocolate Curry fudgesicles. They are slowly gaining traction every week and even though we’ll be wrapping up fudgesicle season very soon, we will definitely be bringing them all back next year.
Mark’s sister is in town briefly for a few days and we chose to spend Sunday down at the Dumbo Arts Festival. We’ve never been before and I definitely want to put it on my list for next year because we barely scratched the surface of this 3 day arts festival. Between throwing rocks into the East RIver at pebble beach, the playground and Jane’s Carousel, there were too many distractions in Dumbo for the kids even before we could even explore the festival. But after ducking into the carousel to escape an unexpected rain shower (with just about everyone else in Dumbo, it seemed) we did stumble upon the kids’ area where you could participate in all kinds of hands on collaborative art projects.
Oh, and October. Hello. Every year I think that September always feel like one of the shortest months. Am I right?
