Spent most of Saturday cleaning and watching Nip/Tuck episodes on Netflix :) Maxwell decided to help me go through the New Yorkers, which were piling up. We have a bunch of framed New Yorker covers in our powder room, and I try to change them out with the season -- summer has finally arrived. Jessy came over on Sunday and brought her brand new trombone, which she won at a recent international trombone solo competition. I made it to Columbus to watch Jessy win the competition -- which was amazing -- but this was my first time to see and hear the prized t-bone. It's not the easiest to capture on film, but the bell of the horn has orchids engraved on it. Soooooooo pretty. After lunch, some of our neighbors came over to watch the final World Cup game and Jessy gave a half-time performance, then John, Jessy, and I headed to the pool for a couple hours. Dinner, a walk around the neighborhood, and then Jessy had to get home for another full week of camp.

Happy 4th!

Hope everyone had a Happy 4th of July! We went to a Phish concert with friends, spent some time at the pool, and watched fireworks with a bunch of neighbors.
