Thursday, August 15, 2013


well, as usual i am behind.  this time, with good reason.  last wednesday, our beloved dog, mouton, passed away and thursday, we left for a 6 day trip to new york and limited internet access.
but here, without fail, are the last 8 days...

 day 220: daddy had a business dinner the night we arrived, so we took ourselves out to Big Daddy Diner and had BIG shakes :)

 day 221: went to see the new Broadway show 'Let It Be'.  more of a concert/tribute and so good!  music was bang on.  guy who played Paul was especially good and the theatre was gorgeous.  this is the ceiling.

 day 222: had debated going to rockefeller center and top of the rock, but were feeling tired after our two hour bike ride in central park this morning.  instant regret when we saw this sunset from the lounge at the hotel!

 day 223: went to a yankee's game! gorgeous day for it and the yanks won :)

 day 224: miss B striking a pose at the brooklyn bridge, while we wait for our historic pizza :)

 day 225: travel day, but this cool sculpture hangs in the toronto airport.

 day 226: picked up our sweet figo from the pet resort.  clearly he had a blast!

day 227: another great run up on the hill with the feegster!
