I hope everyone had a good weekend! We just hung out in our ‘hood, eating outside and visiting all our favorite playgrounds. I’m still getting used to the lack of spontaneity that owning a dog has brought us. We are definitely the type of family that at 3pm thinks, “Oh! Let’s head down to the Seaport!” but when we go through 3 different Uber drivers that won’t take us because of the dog we get a little bummed and decide to head to Prospect Park instead. But, the upside is now we know to plan ahead and use the local car service instead (sorry, Uber).
After hanging at the park all day, we walked down to Swan Dive. It is this great outdoor pop-up space in Gowanus with delicious BBQ. It is family and dog friendly. We shared a table with this other family from Carroll Gardens. Edie ended up playing with their son so Aaron and I were able to actually eat our food while it was still hot.
Oh, we took Chilli to get a bath at this great DIY dog groomers and watching Edie “help” was the sweetest thing. I love how much responsibility she has started to take on with Chilli. She is even joining me in Chilli’s second class with the dog trainer this afternoon! We are practicing walking on a leash so we don’t look like the crazy family taking up the entire sidewalk with a rambunctious dog, stroller, and scooter!
