ahhh...

It started out gray but turned sunny by the time I got to Brooklyn, so we had to wear our sunglasses as we headed out for the afternoon.

First stop was Ample Hills Creamery - the best ice cream I have ever had; probably better than Jeni's in Columbus, OH - and I didn't think it was possible.  They are giving ice cream making classes in the Fall and I am sorely tempted (even though I already make ice cream). If you are in NY, it is worth taking the Q train to 7th Ave. (5 stops from 42nd St) and walking a few blocks for this ice cream.

Later, after working off the ice cream at the playground, we went out for dinner.  Best meal I have had in recent memory at a new organic restaurant that opened 2 weeks ago on Jessica's corner.  The restaurant is Carlton Park. Farm-to-table, local organic and an interesting, outstanding menu.  Even the gin was organic - LOL.

So - busy and happy day, leading into what I expect to be an equally busy and happy holiday weekend.
Wishing you all the same.

I have thought about that ice cream store all weekend. That photo of granddaughter has a close resemblance to your profile photo on the right! Very sweet.
