A three part weekend...

 Wow.  What a fun weekend we had.  

A visit to a new apartment on the Upper West Side.  Rock n' Roll.

A reunion with some much loved family members to celebrate a graduation.

and of course, father's day.

I love living in Vermont, and I love visiting New York City.  It is probably my favorite place on Earth as far as cities go.  So many sights, sounds, and smells.  I think it is the possibilities that make it so wonderful...

The new digs my mom is sporting is in its beginning stages.  A fun, yet daunting stage.  Time to organize, plan and execute.  My suggestion; a baby blue leather couch.  We'll see.  For now, the highlight is the window...





...and the view.   The taxi cabs give away the location.  How great are they?


Also on the new neighborhood street: a CRUMBS bakery!  What?
That wouldn't be good for my skinny jeans!   Their ice coffee is to die for too!



Most importantly, there is the largest, most amazing Whole Foods only 50 feet away.  I swear, it was the Costco of Whole Foods.  They had a beautiful cheese selection, delicious desert skewers, and like 500 dressings.  I could have spent the whole weekend there.




 Look!  There it is!!  My mom can just peak out at it any time and think of all the wonders it holds inside.  Jealous!















The girls spent some time in the lobby while the boys did some helpful moving duties... It is super sleek and quite relaxing.









I could go on and on about that beautiful city but that was not the point of destination this weekend.  Lots of very important people were gathering for an oh so important event...across the Henry Hudson in New Jersey Land.




Colby graduated from Sparta High school.  He is off to college this fall; the University of Virginia.  Well done cousin Colby, you are off to do more great things your life!  Thank you for being a great role model to Noah.  You are quite the young man.

It was really a glorious afternoon.  The weather was East Coast on its best behavior.  And we all enjoyed ourselves....

My Uncle Marc and Aunt Sherry really have outdone themselves with their terrific kids.  They both are always so lovely when we come to visit.  The Isenberg's always go out of their way to have a little something for the kidos.  The bubbles were a hit with Gabi, I didn't hear anything from her the whole day, just blowing away... Thanks for playing cousins!










My Papa Ralph was there and boy was he a sight for sore eyes.  When I moved from that desolate desert I gave up weekly lunches with him.  Those weekday lunches are on my top five things I miss the most and makes the list of reasons why I would ever consider moving back.  But he is a good man and is glad that I am out living life... 

Need less to say, I was glad to see him.  Aren't we a good pair...
















My Aunt Marcia and Uncle Mike made there way to this shin dig as well.  They are a very special couple too!  Living in the beautiful pacific northwest, seeing them now and again is a special treat.  Marcia is so fun and such a lovely person.  I always have a nice time catching up on their happenings...trying to pry juicy work details from my uncle which he never gives and catching up with Marcia on kids, dogs, and running outdoors.  They have the cutest 80 pound dog you have ever seen, Huck. Love!







So we ate a bit of this....




...and a bit of that





and we felt like this after...









Then Colby treated us to his very skilled guitar talent...


 He is seriously good... no great.  No, unbelievable.

I can't wait for this time next year.  Jensin graduates!  We will all be back together again.  Will you preform for us Jens?  What will you want your shin dig to be like?



Thanks Marc and Sherry, for sharing your big day with us!  We had a wonderful time!
