Before we left Philadelphia, we made sure we ate at some of our favorite places:
|Tampopo, 44th Street, West Philadelphia|
|El Limon, Fayette Street, Conshohocken|
|Frankford Hall, Frankford Street, Northern Liberties|
My first outside-baby Mothers Day was really special. Jason made me breakfast, and he gave me new running sneakers and a nice dinner out (which we haven't had a chance to take yet!). Elliott (read: Jason) made me a Shutterfly book. We spent the weekend with my family at Aunt Chris' and at Longwood Gardens, which I had never been to before. So beautiful, and so big!

|Beautiful campus. That's the dorm my dad lived in!|

The next weekend, my parents, sister, and I took my aunt and cousin from California to New York City and showed them the sights. We tried to see the Ground Zero memorial, but the tickets were sold out (they're free, but they require advance reservations to keep the crowds at bay). It was an interesting trip (thanks to some noisy neighbors at the hotel), but we still had a lot of fun together.

What fun things have you been up to this summer?
