Many people who live on the island use the tram as their mode of transportation to and from the city:
Understandably, they don't like a lot of traffic on the island, and parking spots are at a minimum, so we parked in a garage and walked about a half-mile to their building:
Katie and Jayden were out in front. It was a perfect day weather-wise and otherwise!
The party room was very big and very nice. And it had a lot of separate areas with little conversation pits here and there (do people still say 'conversation pits'?) and a pool table that the kids had fun with:
And the rooftop was big and beautiful too, and the views were amazing!
And because it was such a beautiful day we got to enjoy it outside a lot:
(The rooftop flowers and plants were so pretty and a nice backdrop for Sophie!)
(And I love the 59th Street Bridge and the city views behind Baby Ray!)
Here's Susie and her granddaughter Zoe:
'Love this little one! She truly is a real live doll!
We all had lots of fun and enjoyed lots of delicious food!
Here's the Birthday Girl with Ellie:
We walked back to the car along the water and got to see a little more of the island:
Jayden and Katie stopped along the way to enjoy the park:
We spotted a black squirrel (I thought at first that it was a rat)!
And while the rest of us walked, Eóghan got a free ride on Grandpa's back!
It was a wonderful day!
