Spring is trying to sprung in Jersey! (April part 2, or 3?)

neighborhood friends, nathaniel and elizabeth

this big girl was pretty excited about baseball.  there weren't enough girls for softball, so she got bumped up to coach-pitch baseball.  she was the ONLY GIRL on her team.

marjorie had baby boy #3, Rohan Frederick Dreyer.  
oh how i wish i could hold him!

sometimes you have to stop in the middle of the road on a bike ride and rest a little


pat had fun being freddy's t-ball coach

date night in philly.  AMAZING restaurant.  chef/owner nick elmi won top chef (our favorite cooking show) a few seasons ago
