Here we are again at the beginning of the week and the start of Travelin' Cousins' fifth week! With each week that goes by, we welcome new followers and more and more travel information on our site. This week is going to be chock full of posts! First, don't miss my story today, A BEAUTIFUL Day with Mom about my day last Thursday at the Broadway show, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Tomorrow, is "Travelin' Tuesday" and our next installment of New Mexico Road Trip. Throwback Thursday will have you taking a trip down memory lane with Tanya; and finally, Foodie Fridays, brought to you by me this week will feature Pan & Wien Restaurant, Vienna. And of course, who knows what other surprises will come your way this week!
Yesterday, I posted a list of sites and activities on Long Island that I will be visiting this summer. I hope you had some time to look through the various links for your own possible entertainment options if you either live here on Long Island or are planning to visit. Stay tuned for "Long Island Places" during the coming weeks, in which I will be posting about many of these! Yesterday I ordered tickets for Jersey Boys The Movie for opening day! And for Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill on Broadway - both for later this month!! You betcha I'll be posting about these!!
So, in honor of the Tony Awards last night, a big shout out to all The Tony Winners!!!

Welcome to a New Week!
While my weekend was full of many non-stop activities, somehow at the same time it seemed like a rather relaxed and mellow couple of days!
What was your weekend like?
Did you get some extra sleep? Have a wedding to attend? Go to the beach? Were you on vacation? We'd love for you to use the comment section and tell us all about it!
Early yesterday evening before going to see the movie 'Maleficent" we went to go play tennis.
We found that our usual courts happened to be taken, and I figured we'd just head to a nearby schools courts. And upon our arrival there we find that those courts were locked..
Determined, I do an online search for yet another nearby tennis court. We pull up to this newly found court and happily find it available. I ask that Dominic run over and make sure that it wasn't also locked. It was open and he goes skipping inside. Then as a jokester he shuts the gate behind him just as Cosette is walking up. Smirking that he locked her out. Little did he realize that he just locked himself in! When I bring this to his attention he looks stunned...
Guess the joke was on him! No choice but to climb out. Cosette was definitely the one with a huge grin on her face now and we are all chuckling quite a bit at the situation. Eager for us to get a move on things, so we can move on to the next courts and hope for some better luck. I encourage him to climb out. Also with knowing with the movie showtime approaching that we wouldn't really be playing for very long.
Dominic then used his monkeying around skills to climb the 12ft chain link fence (never having climbed a fence before) and escapes!
Continuing our search, a few blocks away we finally found a court that wasn't taken, that wasn't locked, and that we wouldn't have to climb out of!
Well, as for today I'm looking quite forward reading Elisa's review on Beautiful (what a fun day she had)! Then I'll finally go start my day full of travel research, writing, some time carved out for a workout and to get good sweat, then off to choir for the kids weekly rehearsal and my travel meeting.
