Jack Graduates Cum Laude from NYU

1 Comment

NY is always a blast to visit, but this trip was the most special NY run ever!  We are proud of our #1 son.

It was a super hot day to be in the direct sun at Yankee Stadium.  Fortunately, w all survived.

 

 

A second ceremony for the College of Arts and Sciences was held at Radio City the next day.

 

 

Sailing in New York City

1 Comment

Sailing was just what the doctor ordered on a sweltering day in the city (90 degrees in mid May!). Gorgeous and fun. Amy captained the boat under sail as we cruised up the Hudson.

 

Jack took the helm at the top of the ride.

 

 

 

Champagne!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Captain Barley at the helm.

 

 

 

 

No fun was had!  No fun at all.

FWIW, opening acts were August Wells and Laura Stephenson. Laura is very talented. She really only needs work on controlling the room. August Wells has a French horn.

The high line park in NY is excellent. A must see. Green in the city 50 feet up.

Kandinsky in NY

Cyn and I brought along Ame and Ant on this year’s Kandinsky run to the Guggenheim in NY. We snapped some surreptitious bits, and only got caught 5 times.

After museum and a very nice dinner at Aureole (a Charlie Palmer project) and went to see Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolfe with Tracy Letts as George. Phenomenal.

A trip down to Raines Law Room was unsuccessful. Saturday.
