So Much Fun

My son and I  had a great adventure flying and driving to various places looking at colleges!  I was good (Eric even said so)...I didn't ask any embarrassing questions....I kept my opinions to myself....and I didn't google one quilt shop!

The highlight of our trip was definitely the time spent in New York City.  We had an awesome tour guide who took us on a walking (can you say five bandaids to cover the blisters) tour of Times Square and Central Park, gave us a how to on riding the subways, dined with us at the most amazing sushi restaurant and recommended an awesome place for dinner before the show!

Of course, I would have been happy to spend the entire time with our tour guide at her loft.  I could stare at her design wall for hours oohing and aahing over all the blocks she has up for her Ragamuffin quilt, but I had to remember this trip wasn't about me;-)
  Thanks Victoria for spending the day with us!!!!!  When can we do it again....when it IS all about me?

Have an amazing day!!!


  1. We had a great day! the weather was so PERFECT!! today is gray and oh so rainy!!! Hope you guys got home ok, we found a missed pack of silly bandz here... ;-) Hope Eric liked NYC and NYU.... When did you say your coming back?? ;-)

  2. sounds like a fun trip! Don't you just love NYC? We are headed there in November, so I can't wait to see Victoria. Sounds like she was a fabulous tour guide!

  3. fun. fun. fun. What a nice memory of time with your son! and you EVEN got to visit a friend. WOW!

  4. What fun memories for you and your son. It's such a relief once the decision is made. Lucky you to get to hang out with Victoria!

  5. Oh, I wish you could have gone by to say hi to my daughter and her husband who live in Manhattan! (He's in grad school at Columbia...) I've only been there once, but with so much to do, I could spend weeks!! (Though not in Kate and Jed's little apartment- the guest room is the kitchen!)

  6. Ah, your last two posts are bringing tears to my eyes! My son went to college locally last year, so lived at home. And I sooooo enjoy having that kid around! But this year he moved on to OSU, about 2 hours away. I am so happy for him, but really miss him. Of course, he's having the time of his life!
