living a well tended life... at any age

you’re my best friend

My weekly outings with Noah are winding down, as he will be in camp 5 days a week this summer (sniffle). So I decided that, weather permitting, I would try to hit as many great parks and playgrounds as possible with our time left. With list in hand we started our “countdown” with #1 – the Pier 6 playground at Brooklyn Bridge Park. And we were lucky enough to have a friend along to spend the day.

This is Piper.

Piper is the daughter of my good friend (and fellow blogger) Meredith. Piper and Noah met a few months ago at the home of another lovely bloggy friend, Jennifer – and he has spoken of her quite often (and fondly) since then. So we were thrilled to have them join us.

It was one of those perfect, magical days.

Bright blue skies and a fabulous playground.

Some not-too-scary slides (yes, I went down both).

A yummy treat from a favorite bakery (can you say “Samoa Bar”?).

And even a cute puppy to pet.

Noah hung close to me at first, but slowly started to seek Piper out.

Making sure she’s watching him.

And then the running.

Can you tell who wears the pants in this relationship? (Hint: it’s NOT the one wearing the pants.)

But the best was when the hand-holding began.

If you ask him about Piper, Noah will tell you, “she my bess fend”.

Can you blame him?

    I’m still dying. We had great fun! Although piper refers to Noah as her boyfriend. I’m in tons of trouble! Love you xoxo

      I think it’s Noah who’s in trouble. And I’m perfectly fine with that….xo

    How cute. Wonderful that you captured that special time between them. They’ll never remember it when they’re older. What a great day out xx

      Yes – totally sweet and I hope we can show it to them when they go to the prom!! 🙂

    I wish you could bottle up all of the yummy that those two create. It would make a lot of people happy. I know it made me smile.

    That is so ridiculously adorable! It must warm your heart to see him sharing his love like that.

      Definitely one of those moments you couldn’t “stage” even if you tried – thank you!

  7. Melanie on June 11, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Aww…I love these photos SO MUCH. What a sweetheart Noah is! It must be so awesome to watch this stuff. xoxo

    Drew – Stop commenting on my friend’s blogs before I get to! 😉

    P.S. I WANT A SAMOA BAR! just saying.

    • sherisilver on June 11, 2012 at 9:51 pm

      I will personally make you a Samoa bar. You only need come to New York to have it – no biggie, right? And I LOVE that Drew commented before you did! Made my day! 🙂

  9. Lisa on June 11, 2012 at 8:20 pm
