catching up on the East Coast

I flew to NYC for a baptism, and also tucked down to Philly to visit some friends. Here are pictures from that trip (and OH how many times I wished I had taken my good camera. Lesson learned. I hope)

I want to be a part of it

Our plane couldn't land on our first pass over La Guardia (another plane didn't clear the runway in time) so we swooped over Manhattan, and I took some pictures out of my plane window. If only the clouds would have moved out of the way...

My college roomie now has twins. Fraternal, obviously. They turned one right after my visit, and were a pure delight. Also, watching my dear friend parent these girls, and their big brother, was wonderful.

Broadway and 23rd
I had lunch with Magpie (and failed to get a picture! I had meant to, but we talked the whole time and I plumb forgot) but she told me to be sure to check out this art installation. There were identical statues on buildings all around this intersection, teetering high above. I had missed them entirely when I passed below on my way to lunch.

Love it so far! I totally would have missed that art installation, too...I like the way you captured it.
