Sunday Funday: Cinco de Mayo Edition

Thank goodness we’re having a spring this year. This was another sunny-but-jackets-required weekend. On Saturday, we walked over to Franny’s, where my bff Jill once sat next to her #1 celeb crush, Jake Gyllenhaal.

Sunday we went back to Prospect Park for the Food Truck Rally and enjoyed a walk through the neighborhood.

Sunday Funday: Prospect Park Food Truck Rally

Today was a sunny, acceptably warm (53) day which meant New Yorkers are required to spend some time outdoors. V and I decided to pick up some coffee for fuel and walk over to the Prospect Park Food Truck Rally. It’s held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays every month and has 12 or so food trucks lined up in Grand Army Plaza, which I refer to as Paris. Although the options ranged from BBQ to Lebanese to tacos to slushies, we both opted to honor  the city of brotherly love and had Philly cheesesteaks.

Shorty's NYC
Although we were buttoned-up in jackets and I even saw a baby in a snowsuit (equally as inappropriate as the people wearing shorts and tees), spring has finally sprung in Brooklyn. This year it took its sweet time, but I couldn’t be happier – it’s my favorite season for the neighborhood.

Yellow Flowers
Yellow flowers in Prospect Park. Early bloomers, although I’m not sure what they are?

tulips
I wish daffodil-tulip season lasted longer. It’s, what, 2 weeks?

I *think* this is a tulip tree in Park Slope.
