It’s time to celebrate! Two wonderful things happened today and the day isn’t over yet! The first big news… Scott got a promotion with a raise! He’s now director of The Hilton Times Square a nice low-stress property. It will be a nice change for him after working at The Sheraton. Go Scott!!

The second big news… Abby peed in the potty! Her first time to make it to the potty in time! Maybe this is the start of some thing good. Big hugs Abby! Now she gets to go to Toys R Us and pick out a toy. What great stuff!

Yesterday we ventured over to the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian to see the art exhibit on show. I was impressed with Will Wilson’s Auto Immune Response. It was super post apocalyptic and eerie, just the kind of stuff I like. His archival inkjet prints are amazing. I’ve never seen a print that big before. The prints mixed with his installations combined past traditions with an uncertain toxic future. The other show was by Virgil Ortiz titled La Renaissance Indigene. I found his ceramic sculptors provocative and almost dominatrix in nature. Though his couture collection felt a bit too pop for me. The techno music that was playing just added to that feeling. After visiting the museum we headed across the street to Battery Park for a picnic lunch of almond butter and jelly sandwiches and watched the boats and tourists for a while then headed home. It was a nice day trip and totally free.
