Some Photos

No one event to highlight – just thought I’d upload a few recent pics. The first is the new pergola that Papa finished this past weekend … now he’ll take some time off to recover, but the next project is looming! (hint: water feature 🙂 ) Yesterday, we took a trip to Ocean City again, […]

Gabriella’s Mad as a Hatter
