weekend in the country

This weekend, as we do about once a year, we headed to beautiful Bucks County, Pennsylvania to visit our uncles and their Irish terriers.

It’s a short 1.5 hour getaway from the city, in a picturesque small town. We spent most of the time by the pool, playing with the puppies, and scoping out the flea markets. And though one would think that Bucks County couldn’t compete with New York City nightlife, we made it to three parties on Saturday night — a massive flag day party along the Delaware river, crashing a wedding behind our uncles’ art gallery, and dancing and drinks at the local bar, The Raven.

Some moments:

[we have a tendency to call them “puppy,” “dolly-dear,” “sweetie,” and “tiny” in high pitched voices. and we were a bit confused when they tended to ignore us. turns out when you call them by their actual names they come running over. ]IMG_4302 IMG_4312 IMG_4327classic lil’ KT face. sporting gold hoops since 1999. IMG_4346

  1. You guys are such little hipsters I can’t get over it!

    Also, Katie’s hoops since 1999. I believe they started out pink and plastic from Claire’s.
