day 2

June 22, 2009 |  Category:   family life travels














Day 2 began with a dubious start as Mia still complained of stomach aches and both Mark and I began to feel suspicious knots in our stomachs. After some pedialyte and a bit of toast, we ventured out. The fog eventually lifted and the sun burned rather hot. We were unprepared as we had no sunscreen on us – it was such a cloudy and wet June that we were rather unused to bringing sunscreen along. We did all get a bit red from too much sun, especially when we played a round of mini golf which left us with itchy skin, but I heard it was raining in Brooklyn again so we can’t complain. The day ended up being packed with activities: waterfall, lake, playground, antique shopping, mini golf, wineries…and finally a meal after avoiding food for much of the day.

The family is sleeping. So far so good on the stomach virus. I’m up late working as something just came in that needed my attention. Yup, business as usual.

    I love and love the waterfall shot- it almost look like they are in your backyard.. feels so ironically comfortable in front of a large waterfall. 🙂

    Gorgeous! I hope everyone stays healthy!

    Christine, Ithaca is no Europe, by any stretch of the imagination. It’s summer and all the college kids are away, so it’s pretty sleepy right now. We mostly ventured out to the countryside during the day.

    I´m not used to post comments, but it´s part of my Internet routine to get a look in your blog everyday. I´m from Brazil and always fascinated with your stories and images. Today I had a great surprise riding your post, when I saw the picture with your foot in a grey/silver slipper from Havaianas brand. It´s a Brazilian product that became a icon of the country in international markets. It´s very nice! Do your girls have Havaianas too? If not, let me know their numbers foot. It will be a pleasure to send you some Havaianas kids.

  • Jenna June 26, 2009 at 1:13 am

    Claudia, you are so sweet to offer. I am struck by your generosity!

  • patricia June 26, 2009 at 10:37 am
