If you’re reading this, you’re invited!

Posts will be light over the next week as I’m in the UK somewhat unexpectedly.  Don’t worry, everything’s fine!  🙂  And no, August did not come.  Thank you to my in-laws and dear friend, Beth, who are doing a little tag team babysitting for me while I’m gone.

NYC has several indoor playgrounds for kids to play at when the weather is cold or rainy.  Unfortunately, you have to PAY to go to them.  I know, I know.  Well, my generous mother-in-law got us a membership to City Treehouse.  August LOVES it there!

There’s a giant water table with all sorts of cool features to explore.

On the other side of the room is a playspace that looks like a treehouse.  August has a little routine.  First, he crawls up the stairs as fast as he can…

…then he pokes his little head out of the porthole and laughs hysterically…

…he finds the slide and hysterically laughs again…

…finally, he goes down the slide.  Repeat.  A million times.


Thanks, City Treehouse!  You’ve saved us from succumbing to the delirium of cabin fever!!

This article about Roger Ebert is really moving.

Computer trouble with a capital T.

Hold your horses while I get it sorted (that’s UK for “figured out”).
