Apples And Ice
We had a good and active weekend. Saturday morning we were up and out of the house by 9 a.m., headed for a BBQ lunch in an upstate New York campground and an afternoon of apple picking. It was a nice day, and we now have about 100 apples in our refrigerator - Empires, Macouns, Red and Yellow Delicious, Jona Golds, all our favorites.
Sunday morning we were on the road even earlier, this time to get into the city with a group of friends and catch "High School Musical: The Ice Tour" at Madison Square Garden. The girls loved it, especially Ava. Madison had a good time as well, but she was a little distressed that the "real people" from the film weren't the ones skating around out there on the ice. Her enthusiasm was also muted by the fact that the entire production, even down to the chatter between the songs, appeared to be lip synced. It was still a good and lively show, though, and well worth the trip.
We made it back home in time for Madison's afternoon soccer game. Gwen took her to the field so I could stay home with Ava and watch both the Mets and Jets lose. Let's just say the day went decidedly downhill after we parted company with the fake Troy and Gabrielle.
