This Week in Photos | Garden City, NY Family Photographer

For some reason I didn't take many photos this week. Probably because I took so many on vacation. I needed a break!  

Monday was my birthday. 39. How did that happen? We went to my favorite pizza place - Cicero's in Cupertino. We've been going there for over thirty years now (they've moved a few times). We spent the day hanging out at my parents' house. My friends Mary and Erika came over for a bit. It was a nice, relaxing day.

California Girl: 

This one is from Father's Day, which was technically the week before last, but come on? So sweet. Please note there is no room for me in that bed. I spent the night curled up in a ball at the foot of the bed. How is it possible that a small 19 month old can take up 75% of a queen sized bed?

We flew home on Tuesday. We had some hideous delays in San Francisco because of thunderstorms in New York. We left my parents' house at 9:30am, got to the airport around 10:15am. Flight was supposed to be at 12:15pm but was delayed until 1:30pm. We boarded at 1pm and promptly sat on that plane until 4pm when it finally took off. We didn't land at JFK until 12:30am. Lila was up until 2am that night! She was a champ on the plane. Very, very good. Thank god for the iPad. It helped us out a lot that day. 

I don't remember what city this was - but so cool, right? 

Back at home for the latter part of the week. I didn't go back to work until Thursday so I had a couple of days to get back to reality. Re-entry is hard. Lila was pretty jet-lagged for most of the week.

Eric and his dad started work on the garage. They re-did the roof and are also replacing the siding. Lila helped. 

I found a mullet dress at Target that I really like, so I bought it. Haters to the left. 

Lila turned 19 months old while we were in California. I took her monthly photo this week. It is so freaking hard to take a posed photo of a toddler! Thank god I'm only doing this until she turns two. Most of the shots looked like this:

Last week's prompt for my "52 of You" self-portrait class was "jump". It had been a long time since I had taken any jump shots! I took this in our backyard. Look - our roses are blooming!

Lila had her second to last music class on Friday. There are no summer classes and I'm not sure if I am going to sign her up for fall. The older toddler classes are held a bit too far away from us.  

As I walked to work on Friday I ran into a bazillion people in Times Square doing yoga. Crazypants! 

That's all I've got. We're in vacation recovery mode over here! Hope everyone had a lovely week!
