Yesterday we had a half day at school, so I hopped on the 2:06 train and headed into Manhattan. I went up to the Museum of Natural History to see the parade balloons inflated. My family used to do this almost every year when I was a kid, but there aren’t very many people left who like to go with me. So, until there’s another generation of Reeves to pass this tradition on to, I flew solo.

AND, I saw them inflate the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid balloon, my students are going to freak.
