Despite being ill, Mary decided to get outdoors yesterday and go to Central Park with Rachel. (Mary is convinced that the flu shot she got late last year is responsible for the almost continuous illnesses ever since, They say your immune system is diminished after you get a flu shot ... great.)
Anyway, here are some photos for your viewing pleasure (including Rachel chillin'--one of Mom's attempts at an artsy-fartsy portrait!).
The temperture was in the 70s, and people were definitely enjoying the nice weather. It was refreshing to see people relaxing on the grass and being calm, as opposed to rushing at the typical New York-minute pace.
The spring is probably the most beautiful time of year here (although fall is pretty, too). Unfortunately, it's brief: It will probably be over in May or so, and the temperature and humidity will start to rise. Guess it means we have to focus on the here and now, which is a good life lesson in general.
