After spending a few days in Ohio and Northern Kentucky visiting relatives, I am back in New York. Obviously, the highlight of my trip is spending time with my nephew. He is very imaginative and we had lots of fun making dramatic faces. I followed his lead in the below.  

(Kudos to me for postinng pics with crazy hair and no make-up, right?)

We stopped by the first of the summer street fairs in the area, the Maifest in Covington, Ky, just over the river from downtown Cincinnati. The most impressive thing about this festival is the huge selection of fair foods and German sausages. Also worth mentioning were the competitive chalk drawings, a random mural of Andy Warhol, the crazy things people will deep fry and consume, and the excellent bourbon bar along the fair's main drag.
