Field Trip Frenzy

Last week I was lucky enough to go on a few really good field trips:

Wednesday: The Yarn Harlot in Northampton:

Martinis and shopping please.

I loved Northampton Wools (am I spelling that right? I feel like I'm missing an H.) and a little stationery/other fun stuff shop called Essentials. Also, my appletini and 3-for-$3 tacos at the Toasted Owl.

Here's the Calvin Theater (this is just a little bitty-bit of the actual line.) There were 600+ people in the audience.

Here is my lame picture of Stephanie speaking. Webs' owners were fantastic. Stephanie was very funny. The event was incredibly well-coordinated, with time slots for the book signing and little cups of ice water while we waited in line. The store is huge!

Lynne, Lucia, Jena and I had a blast. Thanks, Lynne, for getting us around. Next road trip: Boston yarn crawl, I think ;)

Thursday: 2nd Grade Trip to the Zoo

Amazing animals and cute little people. What else can I say?

Saturday: School Trip to New York

The trip was limited to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and a good thing because that took up the whole day :) The kids learned so much about both sites (and so did I.) We have a great school and some terrific friends, and that was one crazy-long bus ride! This was definitely a trip to remember.

Oh! Looks like you had a terrific week! I just read YarnHarlot's blog about the Web's event. Wish I had been there too...:(

Lovely shot of the statue of Liberty. I hope to see her someday - Ellis Island too. I have always wanted to go there, but just never have - YET!

Sofee sends wiggles and wags to Frisky....:)
