we all ate lunch together,
then walked to times square. alex took the kids up to free comic book day at midtown comics (free comic book day & star wars day on the same day. at the museum of math. we are some proud nerds.) and we continued on our way to the museum of natural history where we met up with penny's (and miranda and evan's) grandparents.
on sunday, we celebrated aunt jodi's birthday! we were going to pick up some bagels, and as we got to the corner we found a cider doughnut truck with a machine churning out fresh cider doughnuts. WHAT?! we also discovered that our bagel place has avocado cream cheese - basically guacamole in cream cheese form. this was a good brunch. then we all tromped over to prospect park for sister/aunt & uncle/cousin time! penny took an epic nap and then got to hang out with her awesome babysitter while alex and i went out to fancy dinner with uncle jonathan and aunt kate.
i am also proud and excited to report that penny has been walking to school and home with no stroller! she's still working on her stamina, but she's been doing great!
