I’d like to wish everyone Eid Mubarak! Apologies for this being a day late, but we were EXHAUSTED after our Eid celebrations!
As promised, I’m going to share our day and show pictures from our Eid celebrations.
First, we went to Eid Prayer in Prospect Park. It was SO hot, and Jannah was screaming through the whole prayer, but alhamdulillah I’m glad to have stuck through and prayed. That was also my first group prayer since she was born.
The area is mainly Jewish, so a few people came with signs to show support!
Afterwards, we went to IHOP for breakfast. Wais had a chicken sandwich and fries with lemonade. I had their new cupcake pancakes (which were DELICIOUS.. man I wish this was sponsored), turkey bacon, scrambled eggs, and hash browns (I’m addicted to their hash browns) with lemonade too.
Next we headed to the Bronx Zoo! We purchased full experience tickets, so we could enjoy features like the 4D theater, butterfly garden, the Asia monorail, and other exhibits. Jannah LOVES the zoo! While there, we also ate a packed lunch (I described in my previous post, go check it out!).
After a loooooong day at the zoo (our bodies were sooo sore from all the walking.. according to Wais’ phone, we walked 9 miles!), we went out for dinner at LongHorn Steakhouse. We both got steaks, fries, and broccoli. He got a coke and I got strawberry lemonade. Apologies I forgot to take a picture of it, but we were exhausted and starving.
We finally went home. I bathed Jannah and got her to bed, then me and Wais shortly followed. I hope y’all had a wonderful Eid and would love to hear about what you and your family did!
