    Party Like A Rock Star

    What’s Jack up to? Right now I’m all about the rest and of course Jack is all about the play. Insisting of jumping around and bringing me every squeaky toy he can find. He’s going to get me to play fetch if it’s the last thing he does.

    A few weeks ago the DD was complaining the she was bored which is by no means unusual. Honestly, I was kind of bored too. I wanted to walk away from the computer and the waiting laundry held no appeal. I had been wanting to go to Kykuit, the Rockefeller Estate in Sleepy Hollow for the longest time and had never gotten around to it even though it was only a short drive from where we live.

    I called and the Grand Tour was sold out, but the women in charge was kind enough to squeeze myself and my daughter in on the next tour. Now I had heard from about Kykuit from my friend PVE for years but I wasn’t prepared for it’s grandeur. Man, those Rockefellers knew how to do it up right.

    Just a sweet little country get away.
    The gardens are amazing

    And the views spectacular.

    Museum quality sculptures are all around.

    And the art gallery in the basement is not to be missed with it Warhol’s and Picasso tapestries that take your breath away. If you’re in the Westchester area and looking for a unique museum experience take a trip to Kykuit and party like a rock star.

    And FYI the “Playhouse” on the grounds is huge, lovely and still privately owned by the Rockefellers for a little fun get away. We saw them playing a little golf from afar. Ahh the good life. Now I could sit there and write all day.
