Vacation Days

I am sitting in the lap of luxury -- I am here at Judy's on Long Island. Need I say more? She spoils us all terrifically!

Most of the family will have arrived by late tonight. The only one not coming is Jamie, and he will be so very missed.

Rick said there is a free Liza Minnelli concert somewhere in Queens. I know she is a bit over-the-hill, but it's my guess that her showmanship is still something worth seeing. That's my opinion, and not the opinion of most, so I don't know if I will get there or not. We shall play it be ear...

My lovely ten year old turned eleven today. As Ryan said, "Everyone who wants to see Camilla grow up, raise your hand." None were raised. We kind of liked her as a ten year old. But I know God's plan for her as an eleven year old will be just as wonderful!

Spent Saturday in NYC. A bit taxing on the ankle, but not too bad. Well worth it, of course! The Metropolitan Museum, picnic lunch in Central Park, a stroll through Times Square, a quick look at Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Opera Theater, and fabulous Thai food in Chinatown. Plenty of subway and bus travel completed the day.

The next few days will include continued birthday celebrations, beach fun, shopping, strolls through quaint historic towns, and lots of great food and laughter. This family knows how to laugh and eat...

Enjoy your August days. They will be gone before you know it. Then on to crisper, more ambitious days. And that will be good as well.

I LOVE your comment on family trips without DVD's!! I too love the communication, singing , games, observations,etc. that come with family travel. We are the last of the traditional travelers, I fear!

All our love and birthday hugs to Camilla. She is such a blessing to my Olivia, who lamented for an entire month that she and Camilla would be separated on the day of Camilla's celebration. We will have to get them together soon!
