We may have missed it last year, but this year was our 5th time attending the Jazz Age Lawn Party and Nia and Grayson's 1st time as siblings. I learned my lesson after last time and made sure I arrived early to catch the first Governor's Island ferry out at 10a.m. and I'm glad I did - it was CROWDED! It's crazy to think how small the Jazz Age Lawn Party started and now to see how thousands turn out for it. It was a scorcher (hooray for no rain!), but we loaded up on sunscreen, secured a shady spot and stayed until 3p.m.
|My cuties stay mean muggin'!|
|She convinced me to get this for her ($6!), but I have to admit it was delicious - I've tried others that were so bitter, but this was perfection on the hot day!|
We packed lunch but then Grayson passed right out! And of course we had to get a bit of ice cream from the vintage truck:
|Queen Esther was my favorite performer|
|She got 3 spins, failed the first two then the woman's son, "a pro," came back to the booth...|
|The little boy was the cutest! He zipped right in and spun white which wins every time apparently|
P.S. A look back at our previous visits: 2013, 2012 and 2011
