The Weekend | Summertime

After a week of cold rain, we knew we wanted to get outside and enjoy the summer air. We decided to have a little picnic in Prospect Park, and the day continued from there. I think we about covered everything.

We kept the 'picnic' simple by just picking up our favourite sandwiches on the way. Hanco's is the go-to for Vietnamese sandwiches and bubble tea in the Slope.

Park Soup. A little doggy named Otis stopped by to try and steal some of Preston's pho.

Fall may be my favourite season, but summer is definitely the best for the farmers' market. There was so much colour!

I got a little obsessed with getting some peonies. I was stuck carrying them around with us everywhere before we got home, but it was worth it.

Successful shopping trip.

The last location on our to-do list was to stop by the Way Station. We are big Doctor Who fans, and Vanessa hadn't been yet, so we strolled through Prospect Heights past cute community gardens and interesting murals. Fun cocktails and bathroom trips to the Tardis...

The Doctor & his companion.

Then, we made our way back home to order in some Fatty Daddy tacos & play board games. Vanessa owned us in an intense game of Game of Thrones and in Settlers of Catan. I demand a rematch!  Today, for me, is much more low-key. I love have a balance between the active & relaxing, so this is shaping up to be a perfect weekend.

What did you get up to this weekend?
