Sutherlands in the City

Noah's favorite thing about working at insurance (while I worked at agency and Buster went to Army) was his coworkers, particularly the one who would have caught this obscure reference to canceled TV shows because he's the one who coined it.
Spencer and Traci came to NYC last week and I hesitate to recount the weekend, because Spencer tells it a lot better than I do. Truly, I'm trying to add a sentence here or there but I'm not really doing it justice.

But we did love the perfect weather they ordered for our Saturday tours of Brooklyn, Little Italy, SoHo, the Meatpacking District, the Flatiron District and Junior's Cheesecake selection.

It was also nice to snap a few photos at some of our favorite city spots. For as often as we walk by these places, we almost never take pictures or don't feel like asking a stranger when we know we'll be back.

Or we do ask a stranger, but then I don't feel comfortable saying, "would you retake this? My butt looks big." Ah, to sight-see with friends.

It's a shame we didn't think to snap the group photo until Sunday when it was rougly 3,000 percent humidity out there and my hair was so over it. Don't be fooled just because everyone else looks good on this stroll through Central Pak... dang you, Traci and those cute curls.
And for good measure, a devastatingly handsome picture of Noah in Brooklyn in case any long-lost friends from high school are reading...
Tell me about it. What a hunk.

I love the Arrested Development line, that's one of my favorite shows.

That looks like so much fun. I remember going to NYC in high school for a short few days. What an amazing opportunity to live there and experience all of it. By the way, you are gorgeous (even with 3000% humidity)!

So I totally just left a comment on your "enter as strangers, leave as friends" blog. Then I noticed that the last post was from May of 2008... Ooops!

Love the shot of you two around the Town. by the time we get there to visit out tour may be a lot more like the scene from European Vacation where the Griswolds keep going around the round-about, "Look kids, Brookyln Bridge, Times Square ..... Look kids, Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square" If you have NOT seen this, rent it, fast forward through some of the sorta naughty stuff, and hit this scene. I will be laughing somewhere.

First, I wish I looked as stunning in 3000% humidity (which as you know happens quite regularly around the DC area). Next, you did marry a hunk...but you're Allison so of course you would. Finally, Ashlee Schiller and I want to come visit. I think its a grand idea...when would a good time for you kids be?!? We seriously need to catch up!
