After Daddy time in the morning, Rich headed off to work and Max and I got ourselves out of the house and down to the subway to catch a train to visit Max's friend Taiga (and my friend Sayuri). Max and Taiga have known each other almost a year now and it's a real pleasure to see them enjoy each other's company. After eating at a lovely cafe in their neighborhood, we walked to the local park to enjoy the first bit of sun in a week.
After some see-sawing, balancing on logs and general running around, Max grabbed a stick and proceeded to explore the fences, flower beds, trees and general dirt. The highlight of playtime was some good old-fashioned playing with sticks in the leaves.
