summer weekends

Although the summer officially started this past Saturday, I feel like it has been in full swing for a while. Bryan & I have gotten into a summer weekend routine. Staten Island Friday evening, dinner with his parentals, double header softball games early Saturday morning, & either off to the city or back in Nyack to enjoy the rest of the weekend. So far we have had jam packed weekends . . . . 
walked the highline & cooled down with popsicles
strolled through the 9th Avenue fair
ate oysters by the Hudson River
brunch at Jacob's Pickles
celebrated Hollis' birthday
explored Piermont on a sunny day
look ma, I have curls! 
took the tram to Roosevelt Island - how cool is this abandoned Smallpox Hospital built in 1854?!
a view of Manhattan from the south end of the island.
nailed it

Not pictured are a few backyard BBQ's, hammock swings, a wardrobe meltdown, & celebrating 40 years of shark entertainment {aka me squeezing the life out of Bryan's hand}.
