..... I say Donut
Last week Belle and I decided we needed to get our girls together for a play date. I, the snack-ish person I am, wanted to introduce Belle, Biet, and "babaay douuu" (according to River) to Peter Pan Donut and Pastry Shop. It's one of the best spots in Brooklyn. It's located in Greenpoint, and withholds so much of its old school charm, it's what keeps me coming (besides the delicious doughnuts) time after time. You'll usually find a handful of older polish men sipping coffee, smiling at the babies, and talking over their morning, afternoon, and pm snacks. They are that good.
Good thing I don't live too close by! ;)
After wrangling the girls we headed to the local park and hid under a huge old tree away from the on and off again rain. We offered the girls a bite or two of our donuts, but they weren't really having it. My belly did not mind.
These little, relatively simple play dates are what brings us so much joy now a' days; besides being with our family and Peter. Having friends around, who are just as in awe of old-timer shops, brownstones, lofts, babies, and super creative people. It's the best.
