I'm back

It was a great vacation: we spent the first few days visiting friends on a small organic farm in Connecticut. The boys and I got to help with the collecting and boiling down of maple sap into maple syrup -- it was a lot of fun. We just missed the birth of a new baby lamb by a couple of days. After Connecticut we spent the next few days in New York City. The highlight there was visiting the Bodies exhibit; it's quite similar to the travelling Body Worlds shows. We also visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The UN and the really remarkable Lower East Side Tenement Museum which is a bit obscure but which I would really recommend.

Coming home, we just missed the worst of the snow/sleet/ice storm last Friday. We were only delayed 4 or 5 hours departing on Saturday.
