Pictures from New York...

Here are a couple of pictures from the trip up to New York. Normally I take more pictures, but I haven't really been trigger-happy with the camera lately. I go through phases. I guess this must be one of the low-cycles.

This is Azalea sporting a Hogwarts cap in the Harry Potter section of FAO Schwarz. She had so much fun running around and playing with all the other kids. At one point she became friends with this little French girl in the Barbie department. The little girl, named Pamela, was teaching her dance moves and running around with Azalea pointing out who they thought were their favorites.

Here's a shot I snapped of Azalea at the GreenMarket in Union Square. She insisted that we stop and smell all the flowers. She particularly enjoyed the big sunflowers. The GreenMarket is one of my favorite things in the City. It brings out so many interesting people and puts you in touch with such good food and fresh produce.

If you've at all been keeping up with either my blog or Cynthia's blog, then you know we like to eat. We especially have a soft spot for chocolate. Max Brenner's has some really great treats. To the left is a picture of one of the desserts that we all dived into. It was a plate of some kind of peanut butter crunch bars. They were tasty, especially drenched in molten chocolate.

Normally we find ourselves out and about a lot when we're all in New York together. However, since I was a little sick and we were all really tired from the show, we found ourselves back in my apartment more than anywhere else. This didn't mean that we weren't feasting. On the contrary. We cooked up a zingy shrimp dish served over soft-cooked polenta.

It was so nice to chit chat with you at the show. Hopefully we will cross paths again soon. :)

Hey Sheila! It was good! They did have the apple cider and it was tasty as usual! OH! Did you know that the honey man still knew your name? Weird, no?

Hey Sara! It was nice meeting you and I'm happy that we got to chat as well. I'm sure that we'll be seeing more of each other. You know, the world is small!
