A Day in New York


Yesterday I got the chance to see my family in New York. Actually not just my current family, but my soon-to-be family as well. Jaime had her engagement party on Saturday.

I flew into JFK at 6a.m. and Jaime picked me up and took me to hang out at her Brooklyn apartment. We spent the morning going around Prospect Park (where the party was to be held), getting some New York bagels, and just generally catching up. It's been a long time since I've gotten to talk with her in person, so I was happy to have the chance.

Actually it was great to see all of my family. It reminded me of how great they all are and how much I enjoy being with them. It's also very weird to only see them every 6 months or so, and so I've only got stop-motion photography style memories of how they look and who they are. And they change so much in that time it's surprising.

Anyway, I also got to meet Cate's family, which was nice. She's such a great person, and I'm glad her family is the same. We all bonded over food and touch football, and had a pretty great time. (Actually all of the little kids from Cate's family, and I don't know all the relations, were firmly convinced that david is a ninja, so it was neat to watch him show off).

But alas, Keith can be stupid sometimes, and booked himself a flight back home the very same day that he arrived. So there was a mad dash back to the airport, and I barely made my flight back home. But I made it back, safe and sound. And have tried to make up for my absense with Ishy today.

Anyway, check out the pictures
