A quick trip to NYC


Jeremy recently had some meetings in NYC, and, as luck would have it, the meetings happened to coincide with Jeremy's dream concert.  So we left the kids with grandma Julie (thanks mom!) and we packed as much as we could into a few days in the big apple.  We probably should have used the break to get more sleep, but we ended up filling our days and nights with fun.  Shopping, museums, movies, food, sightseeing, catching up with friends--oh, and, for Jeremy, hours and hours of accounting and finance.
But the highlight was definitely watching Valerie Gergiev (Jeremy's favorite conductor) conduct the Mariinsky Orchestra playing three masterpieces by Igor Stravinsky (one of Jeremy's favorite composers), including The Firebird, Petrouchka, and The Rite of Spring.

Oh, and the concert was in Carnegie Hall.  It really was an amazing night, one that we will never forget.  And this picture of Suzanne posing is now on the Internet, so we'll never forget that now either.

It was a quick but wonderful trip.  If you want to catch some of the excitement, spend some time listening to these:

Pure genius.
