We headed out to the Village for dinner at our favorite little Italian place Frank. After midnight, we were back at Small's, a great jazz club that Dick found a few years ago. We stayed until 2:00. This is Dick on vacation mode. :)

Today, we started a the the Museum of the City of New York. It was a great space, with several great exhibits. My favorite was Mac Conner- a popular artist/illustrator/designer who did many illustrations for ads and magazines, most notably in the 50s and 60s.
In the afternoon, we checked out the Neue Gallery that had an amazing exhibit of an artist named Egon Schiele. Again, no photos allowed, but fantastic exhibit.
It's been really fun checking out these great exhibits in these smaller spaces.

I figured we'd just acknowledge our anniversary at dinner one night. Imagine my surprise when we checked into our hotel today, and saw scattered rose petals on our bed and, Godiva chocolate and a chilled bottle of wine!! This is a first, and was SO sweet and thoughtful of Dick. What a very wonderful surprise!!!

I won him on the frog carnival game. It's the one where you place a rubber frog on a Spring base. You hit the base with a rubber mallet and it propels the frog. You try to have the frog land on a moving lily pad in a pool of water. I had a practice shot (good idea, Dick!), then got the frog in the lily pad on my next try! Yay!!
Walter is very excited to be going home with us. He was getting tired of the carnival lifestyle. ;)

We had a free afternoon so decided to check out the NC State Fair! I took a picture with Sheriff Pickle, visited some blue ribbon chickens, Dick won a small football, and I won a teddy bear by hitting a (fake) frog into a lily pad. Good fun!!

Aside from seeing family, one of the reasons why we are in Chapel Hill this weekend was to attend an event at Dick's Alma Mater. UNC Chapel Hill's Department of Computer Sciences is having it's kick-off event for its 50th Anniversary. We attended events all day, and Dick was able to connect with some old colleagues professors and friends. We had a very nice time, and hope to return in early May for the 50th Anniversary Gala Event.
