Setting: approximately three weeks ago. Not bad considering I've been in a blurry haze for the last month or so. I blame Craig (not just "the boy" anymore - that's right, he gets a name!). New York City - multiple boroughs and many train/subway adventures.Friday evening arrival. Greeted by friends, cheese, crackers, fruit, and wine. Living room picnic ensues while cute little one snoozes the night away. I love our living room picnics filled with tastiness and wonderful conversation. A lot of life to catch up on in those couple of hours. Delightful.
Reason: Dana's bridal shower prompted the trip, and it's also impossible for me to go to that city and miss a chance to spend time with two dear friends and my adorable pseudo-nephew.
In tackling the weekend's events, one must always consider what Mother Nature has in store. Unlike last year's horizontal rain and crazy random wind tunnels during this time of year, this year we just had...normal rain! I know, I know, you were hoping for perfect skies and stories of "dreary winter? what dreary winter?" - but alas, it was not to be. At least Saturday was relatively weather-free, and I had a fantastic time catching up with Dana and spending some time with my surrogate East Coast family. Love the Duffins!!
|Doesn't the bride-to-be look festive in her bedazzled sombrero? I LOVE the sombrero flair!|
|So curious. And adorable.|
|Ummm...Alan...you're not quite hiding all the way...|
|I see you!|
|Did you know you can have the Wii entertain and educate your small child? How awesome is that?!? Good work, Alan!|
