Summer rewind

Before my two mini-vacations, I hosted some visitors. First 6 Norwegians and one Idahoan descended on my 2 bedroom apartment. As usual, I planned a most excellent NYC experience, and although not everything went according to plan, we had a good time.

Times Square 
First Broadway show for some 

9/11 memorial 

They are pretty impressed with my proximity to Starbucks 

The same day this huge group left, Anne Lise arrived for a writing workshop and then stayed for few days of sightseeing. 
Here we are at the pier in Queens with a lovely view of Manhattan.

Next vacation

After visiting the Cape, I had one day to do laundry and then pack up again to go visit my bf.  I know you're jealous.  These pictures were from a drive up to Jackson WY.  My dress got so wrinkled in the car!

He's so proud of his beard.

Cape Cod

My good friends Lara and Candace invited me to join then during their week in Cape Cod. On July 3, I woke up at 5 am and took the subway to the bus station, bus to Boston, taxi to ferry station and then the ferry to Provincetown. From the pier in P-Town, we could walk to their house. It sounded like a nightmare but actually turned out to be just fine and I arrived by 2:30.

Beach on a cloudy day. We almost had the whole thing to ourselves.

More pics

Jill said she didn't get many pictures from the party so I decided to post a few more 

I was trying to get a picture of the birthday girl in her cute dress, but as you can see, she wasn't interested. 

Here's proof that she has two parents. (Don't know why Chris is in every picture and Jill is in none) 

Eating cake with Grandpa. I should say, eating frosting with Grandpa, because she ate the frosting and put the cake aside.  Here you can kind of see her cute curls.  Grandma Shauna can be proud she finally has a kid with curly hair.

Just a couple of pictures from my recent trip to idaho

Kevin's brothers made fun of me while I was taking this one.  Apparently they think it means we can't see the moon in NYC.

I was in a car, but it still freaked me out to be this close. (This was in Jackson WY)
