Sept recap

Wow–Fall time is always busy time.  Here’s what we’ve been up to. Dash was so matted he had to get all his hair shaved off. It’s Marching Band season! Rusty and I had the opportunity to attend the posthumous sealing of sweet Faith Falagrady and her husband Don.  It was such a special experience–one that I…

Terrain Race

This race was So. Much. Fun.  It totally exceeded our expectations.  And Halle was a ROCK STAR!  She went in with the best “can do” attitude, and she accomplished things she’s never done before.  She had so much grit and determination–it was a joy to watch her.  She scaled walls, threw tires, ran through mud,…

US Open

East Village Foodie Tour

We all slept in the next morning, and after a very slow start, we headed out on our self-guided food tour of the East Village. But first, Blake earned $2 yesterday.  I kept him busy watching for dogs so he wouldn’t mind walking so much.  He got $1 for every 50 dogs he saw.  So…

Labor Day weekend in NYC

Our trip started on the right foot. We were checking in a bag with United, and the ticket agent told us that “children are a blessing” and then gave us all priority security passes. It was awesome! We got to the Sohotel about 10:30pm and quickly went in search of our first slice. All except…
