Busy Days

CountryfallgrapevineBeen meaning to update for ages but just haven't gotten around to it. I am at work right now so I won't be able to post any pictures from the last week either but I'll try and do that soon.

We had a really nice time with Nicki and Damien and the days just flew by of course. They spent their days mostly in the city exploring NY (Empire State Building, Times Square, etc.) and in the evening we went out to dinner either here in CT or in NYC. Took them to our favorite pizza place Arturo's in NY. On Saturday we took a day-trip to Rhode Island (Newport) which was really fun. The weather was just perfect. Walked along the Cliff Walk where you have some gorgeous views of the ocean, mansions and coastline. Had a yummy lunch at the Red Parrot.

Sunday they went down to NYC to spend the last 2 nights in the city so we brought them down there. Mike and I wanted to go and see the new Van Gogh exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art but unfortunately it was sold out for the day. So instead we headed to Brooklyn to have dinner at my favorite Austrian restaurant Cafe Steinhof.

Today it's back to work and back to the daily grind. But Nicki decided to come back east in December so it will be great to have her back in just a few months. And Christmas is so amazing in NYC so I am sure she will enjoy that.

Mail Update: Letters went out today to: Alex/Germany and Caroline/Scotland. Received letters from/still owe replies to: Dave/IN and Charles/TN.

If your weather is anything like ours, your friends picked a good time to visit.

I was just wondering if you drive into NYC or take some kind of public transportation. I hate driving in that city.
