The streets of Key West yielded droppings from all sorts of flora. And when things got dicey with toddler anxieties about separating from the collection du jour, we tried photo therapy. As in, "no, you can't keep it, but I can take a picture for you to remember it."
Just don't ask what happened with his buyer's remorse over a VW bus souvenir, once he realized he could've gotten a train. We're still talking through that one, though now the questions are just "mommy, next time when we go to Key West, I can get a train?"
Yeah, sure. Next time we go to Key West. (Fortunately he has no concept that this may not happen till I retire.)

I can't drink like I used to, which is not saying all that much. However, there's nothing that says "vacation" quite like a drink before 1pm on a hot Tuesday afternoon.
Just add cheese fries...
(I get a bit trigger happy with the camera when I there's alcohol involved)
But, hey, at least I didn't climb a palm tree to put my beads up there. Someone else took care of that.

1) Jeni's glam pose.
2) Riding Gretchen (with spike from Empire State Building uncomfortably under her elbow)
3) Natural exuberance
Saturday was a lovely day to be a tourist in Hoboken and Jersey City. Well I guess that's what you'd call me - and Zach. We were there on our first mom-son road trip, visiting my sister (Sarah), her daughter (Jeni) and girlfriend (Gretchen).
Note to self: go back to Hoboken and eat more gouda swirls at the Old German Bakery.

Happy Chinese New Year! Yeah, ok, I know, it was like 3 weeks ago. And was a very cold morning in Chinatown when they had the dragon parade. Zach of course was super psyched because he'd seen it first on Caillou. I was super psyched when I realized we could watch the festivities from inside while eating a delicious meal of faux meat.
Lilia was a bit grumpy, but you can't really blame her given how cold it was outside.
