live, from NY . . .

family fun
i had so much fun with the U side of my family today (ie: the in-laws!). i am so lucky to absolutely love my entire ‘in-law’ family, and i am not just saying that because i know several of them read this blog. the entire miami beach crew is such a fun-loving, family-centered group and they all know how to have a good time.

i’m about to get all decked out in formal wear for tonight’s black tie wedding! but first, a few pix from today . . .

we went to storm king, an outdoor sculpture park out near west point, NY. i actually wasn’t such a fan of most of the modern sculptures just sort of sitting there cluttering up the idyllic landscape.


some of them grew on me, though.


i preferred to mostly watch this scenery:


my beautiful niece margaux, above . . . and niece/nephew pair max + ellie below.


one thumb up!


and some camera fun:


a carolina blue sky . . . in NY.


lush!

birthday surprise!
and then, out of the blue during lunchtime came a bday surprise!


from my favorite store . . .


and it even fit perfectly! (excuse the hotel room mirror shot!). my parents-in-law are the best. THANK YOU B&S!

out of shape?
i just got back from a 4 (well, 4.13) mile run with josh’s cousin naomi. i love getting to run with family and friends! we powered up some NY hills at a not-so-blistering 9:38/mi average pace.

i think i’ve managed to get myself out of shape in these past 7 weeks of random shift work and overnights . . . but not being in training mode means that i’m actually not all that stressed about it. kind of nice for once!
