Scenes From My Weekend - Williamsburg



Waves in the East River!

Setting up for Smorgasburg



Saturday was a gorgeous day in New York City, perfect for spending quality time outside. We don't often get a chance to visit Williamsburg so that's where we decided to take the boys in the morning. Plus, it meant that we could visit Smorgasburg, an open-air food market that brings together some of the best local food producers. It's full of yummy deliciousness - baked goods, cheese, sweets and a whole lot of prepared food to eat on the spot like pulled pork sandwiches, pizza, pupusas, lobster rolls and Japanese tacos. It also meant that I could restock on Grady's Cold Brew which I have quickly become addicted to.

The boys got a chance to play on the waterfront and throw rocks and sand into the East River. They had fun spotting the Empire State Building and naming the different bridges that we could see. But, they were also anxious to get home because they were expecting a special visitor - Grandma! My mom is in town for the week to help me with the boys while Ed is out of town for work. Thank goodness for family.

It's officially one month since my knee surgery and I finished my second week of physical therapy last week. It doesn't hurt as much when I get on the bike and it actually feels good. I've started using the Pilates reformer and doing step-ups to build strength. On Friday, I could bend my knee 130 degrees.

I definitely felt a change this past weekend. I feel like I gained a few degrees more in my range of motion. I can sit in a chair with my knees comfortable bent and can almost extend my leg fully straight. I walked around for about two hours on Saturday without crutches. While I was tired towards the end, it felt great to MOVE.

I love the Grandma pic! Three of our kids are at Grandma's house right now for school vacation. It is GLORIOUS! Oh, and they're having fun, too. : )

Oh my gosh, the rocks. They love the rocks! Several came home with us in their pockets too!

Smorgasborg is AMAZING. So yummy. You'll have to visit NYC to check it out. I'm pretty stoked to see some progress too. Even in just a day or so, feels different and better.

One month down. Wasn't so bad... ;-)
The boys are pretty excited to have Grandma here as am I. Nice to have an extra pair of hands.

Thank you! One step at a time.

Ha ha! Love it. The boys spent part of their spring break at their grandparents house and it was glorious. Grandma probably wouldn't be so excited about my posting that picture because her hair isn't done. Oops :-)

Beautiful photos and a lovely snapshot of a day. Sitting here in Texas, it's a pleasure to read such a well-written account of faraway lands!

How fun! I definitely wish I had a Smorgasburg in my area. That just sounds perfect.
And happy to hear about the progress with your knee. You are bouncing back quickly.
