Bopping around

This weekend was surprisingly busy! On Saturday, I wandered around the city and spent some time at the green market in Union Square, before we had a lovely dinner at ABC Kitchen (suggestions: ramp and goat cheese toast; roasted carrot and avocado salad with sour cream and seeds; salted-caramel ice cream sundae with hot fudge, candied peanuts, and popcorn). On Sunday, inspired by a few books my mom sent me about day hikes in the tri-state area, we took a stroll on the Appalachian Trail; on Monday, we met with friends in Prospect Park for a barbecue. Some scenes:
