Wow, what a huge weekend! Ryan decided it was high time he splurged on an trip to see friends. My friend George from gradeschool is getting married this summer and decided to have his bachelor party in NYC. So it was a quick trip, saturday to sunday, but I packed a whole lot of fun into it. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures. But anyway, I found out the night before the trip that another friend of mine, Dustin, was going to be in NYC as well that weekend celebrating his anniversary. So we got together for lunch in Brooklyn at a real cool pizza shop. From there I went to columbus circle to have drinks with my cousin Mary who I haven't seen in about 25 years. whoa! seriously. we had a super great time, it was so great to finally see her again. Hopefully we'll do it again in less time. then from there I went to dinner to meet up with the bachelor party. great time of course! after dinner we went to Greenwich Village to a comedy club which was amazing. I laughed so hard my face hurt. then, unannounced, Louis CK (arguably the biggest name in stand up comedy right now) showed up for a set! unbelievable. got back to the hotel around 3am and I was pretty impressed that i kept up the whole time. these cancer drugs are working great! Sunday I bummed around a little and went to see the Frick collection. got a little culture in my system before heading back to chicago. the flight got in early so I was just in time to put the kids to bed.

I guess once the sun comes out things just start getting busy. Or maybe i just have an excuse not to be in front of the computer. We're taking more pictures withour fancy new camera now, so the phone pictures are all mixed in and it is making everything out of order. sorry about that.
We went bowling for the first time. Easter sunday is a great time to do it, we had the whole alley to ourselves. and calling this place an alley is not really right. it is a huge restaurant with two floors of bowling, plus a bar, plus bocce ball. super cool. we had a great time. and on sunday's kids eat free! they told us they didn't have bumpers, so we used a ramp instead. but then a lane over had bumpers so i'm not sure what the story was. everyone had a lot of fun.
Sleepin in the big girl bed.
