NYC: Project Runway

Before leaving the city, we couldn't miss the chance to check out the Macy's display, which showcased all the outfits from Rosa's favorite show: Project Runway. For those of you who have seen this show, you understand what a big deal this is. For those of you who aren't into the show, these pictures will be totally meaningless to you. Enjoy.

(This was the week before the finale, when Uli's dress was on display.)

NYC: Ground Zero

We took some time to visit Ground Zero, where they have a beautiful tribute set up, with a timeline of the events of September 11, 2001, along with some breathtaking photos of that day.

Remember that these photos aren't staged. This isn't a movie. It's terribly real.

"One room available for a displaced person."

This one brought us to tears. "O positive."

NYC: Wicked

Finally, here are the promised photos from our trip to New York a week and a half ago. We had a great time.

One of those awkward self-taken photos of us in the audience of the hit broadway show Wicked. The show was stunning.

The set was beautiful, absolutely incredible. This is the map of Oz.

Our crooked picture taken during the show. Just so you can get a glimpse of how beautiful the lighting, costumes, and everything was.

My beautiful wife and regular me after the show in the theater.

The night before we saw the show, Ana Gasteyer from Saturday Night Live took over the starring role. She was hilarious!

More Jetsetting

A couple weekends ago, I stole away to Cincinnati for the weekend. I like that phrase, "stole away." I had so much fun visiting my sister's family! My nephew Kirk is Mr. Runningback extraordinaire (and I think a developing tenor), and I was able to see a couple of his games. Jake and Dani are adorable, and all three of them are such strong kids. J&B are such good parents.

Heck, all my siblings are good parents. I'm nervous to have kids, just because of the high bar they've set! I guess they got it from my parents.

Then Rosa and I spent 6 days in New York City. Unbelievable! Pictures to follow...

Oh, and I've always liked the word "jetsetting."
