Day 1: Ohio Trip

Here’s a few pictures I’ve taken with my phone since we have arrived. It’s been a chill visit so far. We went for a nice bike ride, visited my brother and his family and ate dinner at Chipotle’s.

Country Roads Take Me Home

I have this entire week off for vacation. I am pumped. I have needed a good break like this to rejuvenate myself in more ways than one. Besides working vigorously on my art and cleaning my house to the core, I am taking a much needed trip to Ohio to visit my family. As always,Continue reading “Country Roads Take Me Home”

NYC – Mariott Marquis & Time Square

The hotel we stayed in, the Marriot Marquis, was located in the center of Time Square. It was a busy area, by far! There was so much going on, so many lights, people, buildings, advertisements, honking taxis, pushy bus tour guides….the list goes on. It was a lot to take in. The hotel was veryContinue reading “NYC – Mariott Marquis & Time Square”

NYC – The Arrival

There were a lot of firsts when we arrived in New York City. To reach our hotel, we had to ride the subway and then walk a few blocks. I had never ridden the subway before. It is crazy how fast they are! There was a lot to take in while we headed to ourContinue reading “NYC – The Arrival”

I Saw A White Deer!

You won’t believe it! I barely believe it and I saw it! I was driving to the store on a familiar route on the highway. Off to the right is a big clearing where herds of deer are often seen grazing. I always enjoy seeing them when I drive by. Sure enough, on this drive,Continue reading “I Saw A White Deer!”

Updates from the Road

Hey All! We’re having a blast in Ohio. My parents, son and I took the boat out on Lake Erie this past Wednesday. We caught a bunch of perch and fried them up the next day for a fish fry with my brother’s family. The kids went swimming in the pool and we hung outContinue reading “Updates from the Road”

Things to do: Tulip Fest

I was finally able to make my way out to the Tulip Fest in Albany, New York. It’s held every year on Mother’s Day weekend in Washington Park. I have been wanting to go for the past couple years but never got the chance to. This year I just barely made it! We went onContinue reading “Things to do: Tulip Fest”

Photo Journal: Schodack Town Park

We had a quick break in the rain last weekend where the sun peeked out and the air was warm. My family and I made our way to Schodack Town Park for a peaceful stroll before more rain was due to come that evening. It was nice to finally get out and enjoy the outdoors,Continue reading “Photo Journal: Schodack Town Park”
