Busy weekend - it's fun to have visitors

Thought I would make a quick post about our day. I think I mentioned in a previous post that my friend Linda and her son Garett are here on the East Coast visiting from CA (I stayed with them for a year when I lived in CA for a year in 98-99). Linda's parents live in New Jersey so they are staying there, visiting with some other relatives and so on. This weekend they came to NYC so we met up with them there.

It was great to see them again. It's weird seeing them in NYC though as we usually meet up in CA. :) We had a good day even though it was pretty hot but at least the humidity has gone away. Started out in midtown and headed down to South Street Seaport, then to Chelsea Market. Afterwards we walked down Bleeker Street to look for Magnolia Bakery where we had cupcakes and cheesecake. Very yummy. :) Continued walking through the Village and eventually ended up at Arturo's where we had pizza.

After our pizza we headed back to midtown, did a final loop through Times Square and then walked to the Port Authority with them where they caught their bus back to NJ. As a spur of the moment thing we decided to go and see a baseball game in Philadelphia tomorrow (they are actually playing the NY Mets) After the game we are going to stop at Linda's parents house in Medford, NJ. It will be nice to see them again. Promise to post pictures of our get together soon.

Mail Update: Since my last update letters have gone out to: Fiona/Scotland, Tizz/Denmark, Celia/MA and Syvil/PA. Wrote a letter today to Pamela/Florida. Received letters from/owe replies to: Kimber/Canada and Alex/Spain.
