sister getaway

I have the best husband ever. Seriously. He let me encouraged me to leave to have some much needed R&R in Colorado with my sisters and we had a great time. I had (and still have) pangs of guilt - leaving my city with Sandy's wounds very open and fresh (Dave biked into work while I was gone). But I am ever so thankful for having such an easy travel experience and 4 days with my sisters.

We drove up to Snowshoe to hang out at the condo, have good food and do a puzzle (yes, I know our OCD is showing...) I also got to nap. A lot. It was heaven.
and of course there are the sister shenanigans...

It was so sweet to get together and to be away from husbands and kids and work for a while. We had not taken that opportunity in years. I'm hoping that it doesn't take us that long again... Although with me having two kids under three, it may be asking too much of Dave.
It was a beautiful flight back to the city. A picture of Red Hook below...There was 6'-0" of water in our favorite grocery store, Fairway, which is still closed.
And a picture of the bridges. They were open, but still had the 3 person restriction on them. Our friends B&M were able to get to the hospital to have their baby as their little EB, yet to be born, was counted as the third...

There are still a lot of hurting families out there. Such amazing generosity as well. Please keep this city in your prayers. I know that she will be never be the same again, but hopefully the better for it.
