It was a full weekend. So full that this post is taking FOREVER for me to put together. :)

We spent Saturday at my Aunt Melodee’s house in Pennsylvania.

The boys all hit each other with sticks in the yard.

Which was very exciting for Aunt Melodee’s little dog, Bailey…who missed lots of her naptimes.

Dave stood nearby taking a relaxed and passive parenting approach. ;)

And then they went “underground” (Andrew’s term for “basement”) to play on the wii for longer than Andrew has ever played wii in his life. Lucky chap!

But…the whole reason we were there was to go through my grandparents’ photos, films and documents and figure out an archival process.

My sister lives in Colorado, and is not able to join us for little get-togethers like this, so my mom made sure to snap lots of pictures with her phone and gave my sister a steady stream of good stuff. :)

And Isaac stayed nearby playing on the iPad and getting tangled in a chair in many interesting ways.

It was a great day!

On Sunday we were back in Brooklyn and went for a walk on the Highline…a former-subway-track-turned-city-park.

After such a full weekend we were all in bed early, sleeping hard last night. :) Hope yours was a good one!

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.

      You should! If you bring TBC my kiddos will show him all the good spots for leaping about. ;)

    But you know it’s not a former subway track, right? I think your boys would find it interesting to know that deliveries were made by train even inside some buildings…and that the very last train in 1980 was delivering 3 carloads of frozen turkeys!
