Burke and Michele sitting in a tree…

I just got an e-mail from Burke, and I must tell the universe…  After ten years together, Burke and Michele got married on Sunday, 10 October 2010!

The opening line of his e-mail was, “Since 10/10/10 is 42 [in binary], it seemed like a good day to elope.  So we did! I *KNOW*! I was surprised, too!”

Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Brooklyn, New York – July 2010

Joey and I went to visit our cousins, Lisa and Tim, in Brooklyn, NY.  We also got to spend time with our dear friends, Burke and Michele.

We ate our way through New York, and walked across the rest of it (to make up for all the calories we ate).  Lisa actually took the week off work to show us around.  We fell in love with the Park Slope neighborhood in Brooklyn.  Tim and I took a Saturday morning jog in Prospect Park, which is just a few blocks from Tim and Lisa’s place.  We had a totally fantastic time!

Here are a few of the places we went:

We also visited a number of parks: Central Park, Prospect Park, Madison Square Park, Washington Square Park, Battery Park.

I only had the camera in my iPhone, but I did take a few pictures.  Lisa and Joey did an excellent job of cataloging our activities. Below are some links to my favorite pics in Lisa’s NYC Staycation 2010 Flickr photostream.  Joey took tons of pictures as well.  I am sure he will post them at some point….
