Really, the driving was a dream (Natalie did so well!), and we had wonderful visits with our family and friends. The challenge when we visit the Empire State, we are finding, is that there is simply not enough time to see everyone, or even to have a real visit with everyone we do see. We always drive away from our former home city feeling like time went too quickly, like we did not adequately cover all of our bases.
This trip was no exception–racing a bit to see as many of the people we love as possible. We did pretty well, I’d say, though we certainly did not get to everyone and everything.
