Canada Day/America Day

July 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

I like that Canada Day and Independence Day are the same weekend, but it often makes for a very busy time. We had promised Nick’s Dad that we’d visit him in Pennsylvania for the 4th, but we also had some visitors, and not just any visitors, but one of my best friends Julia and her sweet fiance Jay! They’re both there if you look closely:

Even though we only had Friday and Saturday with J squared, we managed to show them a pretty great time in Brooklyn. I love it when you don’t see a friend for a while, you don’t even communicate as often as you should, but you still manage to have all the same interests and habits. In this case, Julia and Jay were very excited about our plans to take them to our favourite neighbourhood restaurants and shops, then more than happy to relax with a bottle of champagne on the roof and going to bed just after midnight.

On Saturday, Nick and I took them to our new favourite summer event: Smorgasburg. We ate all sorts of things from anchovies to pupusas to giant ice cream sandwiches to grilled pineapple.

The food was well-documented, mostly through the reflections in Jay’s sunglasses.

My favourite new find had to be the homemade ice cream sandwiches with oatmeal cookies and sea salt!

Jay & IYUMMMM!

The trip to Pennsylvania was also great – Nick made record time with his driving and I managed to swim three days in a row! Nick Sr. also made us some tasty crabcakes and mac n’ cheese.

How was your long weekend, wherever you were?
