New Amsterdam Village

The weather this weekend has been gorgeous: sunny, warm, and not too humid. We ventured down to Battery Park yesterday to check out the New Amsterdam Village that's been set up to commemorate Henry Hudson's arrival 400 years ago. Erik was so excited to see echte stroopwafels and poffertjes. We bought some tulips and spoke a little with the Dutch sellers in the market. They are having events all week and a harbor day next weekend where they will have a replica of Hudson's ship The Half Moon. I still love knowing that the boat we were married on was named after Hudson's ship.

After the market, we took the ferry out to Staten Island to visit our friends Laura and Glyn who moved out there a few years ago. They have an adorable house and we really enjoyed a great chicken and veggie BBQ in their back yard. They also showed us around their borough a little. It was great to see the Verrazano Bridge from the other side.

With my due date just two weeks away, we are happy to keep distracted spending quality time with friends and enjoying all there is to do in the city.
