What a fun vacation, and oh how tired I am. I'm using this weblog as a form of procrastination, because once I'm done writing, I going to workout. Normally I enjoy workouts, to one degree or another. Right now a long nap sounds best, though.

So here are a few pictures, as a way to stall the workout for a few more minutes.

The view from our hotel in New York

Me, Austin, & Tucker in Times Square

The four of us at the Air & Space museum in DC

Austin and Tucker at the Rockefeller Center museum

The four of us at Top of the Rock -- breathtaking views

We saw Spamalot on Broadway

Tim's birthday coincided with the release date for the iPhone

The birthday boy with his gifts, all obtained from hotel gift shop or from NY street vendors. It was lots of fun putting this together!

Ok, time for me and my kettlebells to do some work. Incidentally, we ate everything in sight while in New York, but somehow I managed to come home with only 1 extra pound. A few times when Tim and the kids chose treats (fried potato pancakes with applesauce at Juniors, hot dogs from a street vendor), I made healthier choices (hummus and veggies, which I was unfairly teased about) or skipped the snack. But I definitely had my share of desserts, and even got a dark chocolate and almond See's candy bar at the SF airport last night -- yum!

When I write next, I'll be sure to tell you about my encounter with the Naked Cowboy. (See, now you have to check back, right???)

I'm envious! A trip to NYC sounds so fun. Hope it went well with the kettlebells too.

Glad your trip was a success! My office is just outside of Times Square, across the street from Bryant Park, so I know about the Naked Cowboy, but I am dying to hear your story!
