Since Grace works most Saturday’s, I have most of the day with CJ. Last summer I used to take CJ out any chance I got, but now he’s a bit more antsy and can be a handful when he wants to get out of his stroller, and because of the winter, I haven’t really taken a walk alone with CJ on a Saturday for the longest. It’s also sometimes difficult because his nap falls right around noon time and I normally pick up Grace at 3pm from work which doesn’t leave me much time to do anything.

But this past Saturday I ventured off. I had to drop off a package at a UPS dropoff store on Austin St., so I took CJ to Barnes & Noble afterwards. The AC was a nice touch too.

I used to hesitate going to B&N’s with CJ because he would simply take all of the books off the shelves, but he’s developed a good organization quirk in which he needs to put things back in their place, so he was actually an angel putting books back on a shelf, albeit the wrong ones.

I walked by a bargain table and saw this thick $40 Dark Knight Manual selling for $12.98. A definite steal that was still 50% off from Amazon’s price, so I just had to get it and it’s actually pretty cool with various pullouts, inserts, and maps. It’s like an adult pop-up book.

Grace texted me in the early afternoon saying that she was going to be late getting out, so I called my parents and they were free to allow CJ to swim in his pool. Although only in the low 80’s, it was really humid so it was a great day for CJ to rule his water kingdom.

After picking up Grace from work, we had Korean food for dinner on Queens Blvd near the 59th Street bridge. She then got the craving for banana ice-cream and remembered a popular ice-cream shop on Metropolitan Avenue called Eddie’s Sweet Shop.

We’ve never been there, so we had no idea what were walking into. Little did we know that this was a 100 year old sweets shop that’s quite the hangout. The decor was very old fashioned with tons of character.

We sat at the bar and quickly ordered our banana ice-cream and golfed it down like ice-cream zombies.

There’s another ice-cream shop on Austin Street that we can’t remember if they have banana ice-cream or not, but regardless I can imagine us coming back to Eddie’s for more.

    Looked like such a fun Saturday! I ❤ banana ice cream (much to Danny's chagrin). Nice deal on The Dark Knight Manual too. I worked with that company on a few books, when I was still in publishing–they do pretty cool movie books, with removable scrapbook stuff and lots of behind the scenes photos and stories.

    I love Eddie’s Sweet Shop! My uncle grew up in Forest Hills and him and my aunt used to go on dates there 🙂
