Over Labor Day week we got to spend a lot of time with Ben’s family. We made the trip to Mass. on Sunday to spend the holiday with Mom & Dad Hamilton. The kids & stayed until Friday while Ben returned to work on Tuesday. We did lots of fun things – playing outside, bouncing at the bounce house play area in the mall, going to the lake, riding in the wagon, and watching Cinderella every. single. day. I also squeezed in a Wal-Mart trip and a stop at the thrift stores. I don’t get to do that in the City!
When we returned to Brooklyn we were blessed with a visit from Uncle Evan….and his “special friend.” We finally got to meet his girlfriend Elise! We did a quick trip to the City to see the 9/11 Memorial. Then we walked home across the Brooklyn Bridge and let the kids ride the carousel again. It was supposed to rain all day, but it wasn’t until our last stop in Boro Park that the rain finally caught us…to Elaine’s delight. We finished the night with a Fresh Mozzarella Pizza…if you’ve never experienced this treat for the taste buds, come and visit us!
