Why do I have to spend four hours on this airplane? And why is that man in the seat behind me holding his temples? And why, I wonder, did they put me and my brother and my mom in the very last row?

You may think this is a photograph of Atlas holding up the world with Saint Patrick's Cathedral (the seat of the Catholic church) in the background but it's actually pornography. What other scantily clad man is a naked woman allowed to admire? What do you think of those biceps?

BlogHer2010, forget the technology updates, bring on the booze (this is the only photo I took from the conference. It's of a random blogger attendee. I liked her hat.

The conference is over so why are that geeky mom walking the streets of New York City sporting a conference badge?

It's Saturday night and the conference is over. So why are that geeky mom and her baby walking the streets of New York City sporting a conference badge?


Me: How can anyone live in crazy NYC? My brother: How can anyone live anywhere else on Earth?

Etani watches over the bags at Harlem 125th Street station where we wait for a train to Scarsdale. On board the conductors let him prove his strength by punching the ticket and tell him they have a uniform and name tag (if his name is Chris or Eric) all ready for him if he wants a job. Etani + train rides = happiness

Who needs Disneyland when you can ride the elevator up to the 11th floor and back down again? This was the only redeeming factor of the hotel where we unhappily spent an extra night (due to thunderstorms in Denver we missed our connecting flight.)

Great pictures! At least you took some--my camera never made it out of my bag. So sorry to hear about the Denver fiasco. .-= debbie´s last blog ..Whos Coming to BlogHer =-.
Thanks for sharing. I was thinking of you over the weekend and wondering how you coped with the children, a feat I never attempted as a young mom, except for trekking across the ocean every year with them so they could spend the summer with their grandma. Once, we had really cheap tickets, and I mean REALLY cheap. They got us to London. Where we were told we were not booked on the transatlantic flight. I had to do some mighty fast talking. We had to stay in a hotel and were allowed to travel the following day. I remember how crazy that experience was with three kids and a husband, so I can only imagine how harrowing it must have been to be stranded in Denver with two kids. Etani's smile makes it all worthwhile, though. And, Leone! How grown up she is!!! I remember you first posts about her, not many months ago, right here at Mothering. Gracious me. How she has grown! .-= Alexandra´s last blog ..Thoughts on Global Warming- August 2010 =-.
YOU ARE ALL AMAZING!!
Etani's photo out of the window of the plane is gorgeous. He IS a budding photographer! .-= Alisa Bowman´s last blog ..The Heavenly Art of Manscaping =-.
