 summer haircuts.  
thank you noel!

 june also brought our weekly trips to fernbrook farm to pick up (and pick) our CSA share.  

 one of the best decisions we've ever made

 taking advantage of living in the Garden State

 of course it helps that all our friends go, too!

 my girl amber graduated.  

meanwhile, poor pat was stuck on a beach in brazil with nothing to do...

 time to head south.  
we left Philly early on the 27th.
Pat got home to NJ that night at 8:00.

we learned while pat was gone that was selected for promotion to lt. col.  not surprised and very proud!

 a little cousin love

 me too, baby girl!!!

we spent the weekend in tupelo, then drove to madison monday to drop the kids off at buddy and kissy's house.
 then i picked fran up in brookhaven and we went to new orleans to celebrate her 40th bday a little early.  we need to do this at least once a year!

meanwhile, the kids were having a BALL   
i think the golf cart is a hit, buddy!
