And a slide show of another trip to Yankee Stadium this summer, courtesy of Dad Dellaripa, who gave up four box seats behind first base, to let Vic, Andrew, Paul and Vincent go see Yanks vs Angels.

Da Boi's of Summer! Part one

Go YANKEES!

Some pics of Andrew at the Sept 16th game. His friend, Travis Viola from Manhattan, is bat boy for Yankee Stadium, but for the opposing teams! So he has to wear the Red Sox uniform when they come to town.....it kills him.

Anyway, he gave Andrew and some friends his Dad's seats recently. Front row, in front of Derek Jeters seats! Not too shabby :)





The Junior Ring

Chelsea has her first milestone of the year....her Junior Ring Mass and Dance.

Yoga, the new addiction

I am addicted to yoga. It feels GREAT! Vic and I joined the Saybrook Point Inn and Spa Fitness Center. The gym manager is a big Austrian named Axel Mahlke (I am NOT kidding).
Axel speaks like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Or the gym twins on Saturday Night Live.
As Axel talks you through your workout routine, my inner voice is screaming "I will Pump You Up!". It keeps it all humorous :)

Anyway, in addition to weight and aerobic exercise, the pool, sauna and steam room, as well as a jacuzzi, the fitness center also offers classes, all included in the monthly fee. Aqua Works, Pilates, Tai Chi, Nordic Walking and Yoga, as well as back fitness and other more therapeautic classes.

I attend the Yoga classes at the very least, twice a week. Its one full hour and I swear I have found muscle groups that I never knew existed! These are deep muscles we don't use during aerobic exercise or weight training. After a stressful day-an hour of Yoga....Yum!!
And the Saturday morning class is beautiful, what a great way to wake up and greet the day, looking out over the river and the boats, mmmm. I feel more centered now than I ever have, I think in my life!

I am a new woman.

little seeds of distraction

....so I found myself this evening playing with these seeds for a disturbingly long time and growing some psychadelic, hippie dippie flowers at GE's latest fun sight:
