We met our dear friends at Tompkins Square Park the other day to celebrate the birthday of their gorgeous little one, Ava, who was born just three days after Biet. We all met in our Bradley class when these babes were still in our bellies, and have done our best to meet up every now and again for playdates. This one was the best yet.
The whole park was in bloom and brimming with summertime energy. They brought home-pressed cherry juice and baked amazing mini cakes for a little picnic. It was really a beautiful afternoon.
Biet and Ava, for the first time, really played with one another (and with the dirt on the ground and with the toys and with their food), and it was magical. They had so much fun. Biet, who sadly never ever gets a chance to play with balls (thanks to a certain pit bull who goes crazy for anything of a spherical shape), adored playing catch with Ava. She fell in love with that pink bouncy ball.
And it turns out that Nico has given Biet some useful experience in the world of sharing. Ava had a great time sitting in for Nico and letting Biet feed her over and over and over.. one bite for Biet, one bite for
After our farewells Gaby and I walked in between the two big trees where we were married and reminisced a bit. My how much has changed since that winter afternoon three and a half years ago... it truly just keeps getting better.
