Some recent New York experiences

Melanie's 40th birthday... a ridiculously indulgent dinner out with a lot of laughs, and the company of a whole bunch of women on tour who I rarely hang out with.  Definitely an evening to remember!

My sister Erin, our niece Rebecca, and my Mom came to visit for the weekend.  We spent a lot of hours enjoying the spring weather in Central Park.

Today we spent the whole day at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and didn't even make a dent in it!  What an amazing and beautiful place.  Room after room of treasures from around the world, and astonishing masterpieces around every corner.  We took at least an hour for the Egypt wing alone.  We also spent a good amount of time chasing down the key locations from The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, which Baz, Ayla and I just finished reading.
