What are your plans?

I'll be playing host and tour guide to my house guests (ex-inlaws) who are just begining their 6th week with me. They'll be leaving middle of week 7.

Now that they are intimitely acquainted with Manhattan I am venturing to the outer boroughs. Tomorrow is Brooklyn day and I wil be doing some live picture blogging and use once again the new hi-res digital camera they gave us for my son's bday (see pretty picture below).

We are going to start at Coney Island Amusement Park which features Astroland (name the Woody Allen movie made there), visit Natasha the beluga whale in her tank at the NY Aquarium. Afterwards we'll hop on a train and head on over to the brooklyn Promenade (where I will try to forget the Spielberg scene filmed there) enjoy the view for awhile while snacking on some brooklyn delicacies, and later try to finally find the entrance to the magnificient structure in the pic below, with the aim to cross that baby on foot over to Manhattan. That's just Friday. I've got fun plans for them (which they've okay'd) for the remaining days too in the Borough of Queens, etc. Monday is my beach day... YAY!

Tuesday, well, that's summer's death knell around here, as that's when the harbingers' of gloom set in on my son in the form of 2.5 hrs of homework a day. I pray they start him off slow, like maybe give him an hour's worth to ease him into it. Hopefully the weekend fun will still be fresh in his mind so he'll have something to hold onto.

Whatever anyone else is doing, I hope they enjoy themselves thoroughly... rain and all. I know I will! But please do share as I'm curious what you all are up to.

Trying to take the first day of September off. I've worked several Saturdays and Sundays in addition to full weeks so I wanted to really enjoy a long weekend.

Might go climbing, definitely doing some yard work, definitely finishing a book and starting another, might go out with a nice girl, definitely walking the dogs, definitely getting a shower at some point, might check email, definitely going to the waterfalls to relax a little, might clean inside the cabin some. Probably will write a bit.

We have Mr Weenies Aunt & Uncle coming in for the weekend from Maryland. We are going to try and catch a Tiger game on Monday.

Aunt & Uncle are from Michigan but moved to Maryland a long time ago. They are going to the Univ of Michigan game saturday.

My daughter is making her first trip up here to see the new house. We're hoping that the rain isn't too bad and we can do some Boston stuff otherwise she'll be bored to tears. LOL.

No plans. Hubby will be working and friends will be busy with their own families. Just another day.

That's an awful lot of homework for just a little guy! We have 15 - 30 minutes a day for him.

I'm not sure I could do 7 days with my in-laws. I know my wife couldn't - and they're her family!

Oh and Annie Hall featured Astroland.

We're still building momentum towards the kitchen remodel, mostly cleaning and packing as much as Liz can handle (still recovering).

I'm flat wore out from the last week and a half, and I'm looking forward to going back to work Tuesday.
