Adorable Babies, The Goldberg’s & Kristen Rodgers is coming to Town,

Good Sunday Morning. Get out today and enjoy it, looks like we’re in for a week of clouds. Babies and more babies were born this week after that cold, ok not so cold, but cozy winter we just had. My dad, and OBGYN, always told me that August, September and October were the busiest months for babies being born and now with FB birthday notices I can tell he was right.

Yesterday I saw the most beautiful bride on the Art Museum Steps, but couldn’t grab a shot from my speeding car. So I looked up photos of who was on the steps yesterday and found this interesting story of a girl biking across the country for charity.
I’m just a simple gal on two wheels with restless legs.   My name is Marisol Gomez.  Some call me an extremist, but I just like to push my limits.   Having played competitive sports most of this life, my aspirations continue to flourish.  For the last five years, I have thought about riding a bicycle cross-country.  When a friend told me he and his wife had bicycled from Long Beach, CA, to Long Beach, NY, it really got my gears turning.”
