We belong to a Co-op in our building, which has been so nice for everyone to be able to get out and enjoy the city. On Friday night we got to go and do just that. We went and had a nice mexican dinner at a restaurant called "The Heights" just a little ways south of us. It was delicious food, but not really our ideal atmosphere. It was very loud, which isn't really the ambiance I want whilst trying to wind down from a long day of 2 crazy boys. But whatev. After that, we went to the Gugenheim on the East side to meet our friend Josh who was in town visiting. They have this really cool exhibit that lights up on the building from dusk to midnight, or 1 am, or something like that. It was pretty cool. After we had had enough, we walked back through Central Park to the west side, where Josh parked his car. We walked around the Jackie Onasis running track that surrounds a little reservoir, and it was so beautiful. These pictures don't do the views justice, but you can get an idea.
Just imagine it without all the blurriness. Such a cool view of downtown NY!
This is the same track that I ran on the next morning with some gals from my ward. They are much faster than me, and I was very proud of myself for keeping up with them for 6 miles, at a pace that is a whole minute faster than what I usually run. Pushing the stroller up and down hills all day must be doing great things for my calves! I plan on running with them every Saturday, and I'm sure it will work wonders for my speed!
Oh, and P.S., Asher woke up this morning, with the beginnings of his 3rd cold in a month. Aaaagh! With all the playgrounds we visit, as well as the community play room in our building, I really need to be better at washing his hands.
