This last week and a bit, Katie came to visit us from England.
It’s been a wonderful couple of weeks spending time with her. We stayed at home quite a lot, but we also went out to eat in some places and played Fluxx, and Apples to Apples. And we went to the farmers’ market, where Katie found a bunny:
We went to Philly and ate cheesesteak and visited the Shoe, but we don’t have pictures of that. And another day, we went to New York City:
I’ve never been there before, so it was quite exciting. Katie and Alex went up to the top of the Empire State Building, but I don’t do heights very well so I stayed in the lobby with Fin and we drank coffee. Later we met Colette, who took us to a Ukrainian restaurant called Veselka, where I had borscht for the first time, which was lovely, and also drank a lime rickey, which I hadn’t even heard of before. Also, pierogies. Then we went off to visit Bluestockings, but they were having a speaking event, so it was rather hard to browse. I hope we can come back sometime when it’s quieter.
And now we’ve just taken Katie back to the airport, and it was very sad to say goodbye. I’m hoping we’ll all see one another again soon.
