I miss the beach.
But, even being back home we are still having a great summer. Today we had this summer's first trip to the pool and I think it's safe to say the girls liked it, especially Katie, also known as "the Fish." That kid loves the water.
Yesterday we had another big milestone - the girls first trip into New York City!! We only live about 25 miles outside the city, but we don't seem to go in very often. I had signed up to try out for Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (which was a bust - don't look for me sitting across from Meredith anytime soon) and we decided as long as I was going in we would all go!
We went in early and visited my uncle at his law firm on Madison Avenue. The girls liked his big windows, big chair and big desk.
Then PJ and my aunt took them to Central Park while I went and failed the Millionaire test. After a long walk back to the car, then a long ride home (through the Lincoln Tunnel which I think was the girls favorite part of the trip, they ooohed and aahhed through the whole thing, clapping when we finally reached the end) we got home safe and sound and tired.
Then Charlotte sat on the couch and promptly threw up all over herself. Just when I was thinking wow, LaLa didn't even get carsick! Glad she gets to keep her title as The Puker.
All in all though, a good day. The girls seemed to like the city, they had wide eyes the whole time- pointing at everything. We have to go back soon - I see an FAO Schwartz visit in our future.
