Due to a booking error my parents weren't able to stay in the same hotel as Ted and me. Instead they booked a room in a hotel less than two blocks from our hotel. Their hotel was right beside the Ed Sullivan Theater where they film The Late Show with David Letterman. My dad was excited about that because he a fan of David Letterman.

Last weekend was the I Madonnari street painting festival at the Santa Barbara mission. After work today I went to see the art, and this year the artists did not disappoint. Given the amount of detail in many of the pictuers it is hard to believe they are all done in chalk. There were so many phenomenal drawings it was hard to narrow it down to a handful for my blog. You can read more about I Madonnari here: www.imadonnarifestival.com.

It is a beautiful day so Ted and I decided to bike to lunch and to see a movie. We decided to try a new Mexican restaurant in Jerezano's Plaza. The food was very good and we will definitely go back. After lunch we rode to the movie theater and saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Overall a great way to spend Memorial Day afternoon.

A friend of mine gave me tickets to the LA Dodgers versus LA Angels game. Ted and I went with his cousin Edward and Edward's friend Stacy. Even though the Dodgers lost 1 to 3, we had a great time, and as usual we overindulged on stadium food. Dodger Dogs for Ted, and garlic fries and ice cream for me.

I stopped in to see Carolyn and Ilaria today during lunch. I can't believe Ilaria is almost one month old (she was born four weeks ago yesterday). She is still so tiny and it's hard to believe she is already 7 1/2 pounds. The first two pictures she is in my lap and the second two pictures she is being held by Carolyn. Such a sweet girl.

Today is our last day in NYC. This morning we went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. After a few hours we realized the Met is an all day adventure, so after a quick lunch of hot dogs and pretzels, we went back inside and continued our visit. We did so many great things while in NYC, and visiting the Met is definitely one of my favorite things. Today was a great way to end our trip.
Pictures #1-2: Views of the front of the Met.
Picture #3: Irises by Vincent van Gogh.
Picture #4: Study for "A Sunday On La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat. I've seen the completed painting, "A Sunday On La Grande Jatte", at the Art Institute in Chicago, and it has long been one of my favorite pieces of art.
Picture #5: Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat, by Vincent van Gogh.
Picture #6: Wheat Field with Cypresses by Vincent van Gogh. Another one of my all time favorite pieces of art.
Picture #7: The cart where we bought our lunch. It may not be fancy, but it was good.
Pictures #8-10: These pictures were taken in the Egyptian exhibit.
Picture #11: A suit of armor in the Arms and Armour exhibit.

Pictures #14-15: These pictures were taken in the Greek and Roman exhibit.
Picture #16: My mom, dad, Ted, and me at the Carnegie Deli.
