It’s always nice to spend a long weekend with family. We planned on spending the entire weekend outside with friends and enjoying a quiet weekend in New York City, but the weather had other plans. The unofficial start of summer kicked off bringing back out the winter coats and umbrellas. It was a cold and wet start to the weekend. Exactly the opposite of what you have in mind when you think of summer weather.
Rather than spending all weekend outside, we bundled up inside watching movies and playing games. Monday turned out to be a great day and a perfect ending to our long weekend. After all of the rain and cold weather, we took advantage of the gorgeous weather and packed up everything for a picnic in Central Park. It’s one of our favorite things to do when the weather is gorgeous and Avery loves being outside to run around. Spending the day in the park with my family and friends was the perfect way to end the long weekend and kick off the summer.
