When you stop for ice cream at Marvel the Friday night of Memorial Day weekend and realize it’s still light enough to take an outdoor picture, you know that summer has arrived even though the calendar says technically not yet.
And no, it’s not a typo – I totally meant Marvel, not Carvel! Marvel has been in business forever, it’s a landmark in Lido Beach.
Friday night’s ice cream by the beach is probably what triggered my real desire to wake up Saturday morning and head back to the boardwalk to run.
One of my favorite parts of running at the beach is packing my oats in a jar to enjoy on a bench when I am finished.
I think I am getting old because with every year that passes, I appreciate the views of the ocean and where I have lived all of my life even more than the year before.
I am becoming a regular at Chopt – I just wish they had more roasted veggies in the toppings selection.
I thought who I was getting to Citifield early Saturday night so that we could grab food, walk around and be in our seats in time for the special ceremony honoring the 1986 World Series champion team but I quickly realized that everyone else had the same idea.
We waited ONE HOUR just to enter Citifield – this picture was from the back of the line!
The Citifield food choices are overwhelmingly delicious (remember my post on what I ate when we had luxury suite seats?) but I knew before getting there that I was going with pizza.
It was our second Mets game of the year but my first ice cream sundae in a helmet for the season.
Let’s not discuss that they were out of hot fudge.
I may be a Yankees fan but I have no issue taking my son to Mets games — I especially enjoy the evening baseball games during the summer.
I spent so much of the long weekend driving all over the place to take my son to three Bar Mitzvah parties that I felt like I deserved a Dunkin Donuts iced coffee < – when did the price get so high for a medium iced coffee?!
The iced coffee kept me calm while sitting in crazy standstill traffic which had a lot of to do with everyone attempting to get to the beach, not just for lounging but to view the Memorial Day weekend air shows. They closed off the parkways heading south once the beach parking lots were full so all of the cars being rerouted ended up with me. Lovely.
When you get out of the shower and hear a lot of noise coming from your kitchen, you know your child is up to something.
I found him in the kitchen mixing up waffle batter following a recipe he found on pinterest. I get nutty when someone else is making a mess in my kitchen but since he waited for me to turn the waffle iron on, I stayed calm.
Yesterday was a rainy day (at least in the morning) so I had to run indoors on the treadmill and stare at our pool which opened this weekend but I didn’t have time to spend hanging out there just yet – hopefully next weekend!
It’s Tuesday today, don’t forget it’s Tuesday. 🙂weekend sentence per picture #citifield #weekend #MDW #icecream #marvel #longbeach Click To Tweet
