On the weekend of the 16th-18th, we made a road warrior-style short weekend trip up to Pennsylvania for three events. On Saturday, we celebrated the Prizer Family Reunion at Cousin Linda's house, and at Grandad's pond and meadow, and on Sunday morning we went to Coventryville United Methodist Church for the dedication of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) in memory of my Mom, Annette Prizer Roth, and in the afternoon we celebrated Cousin Bob's wedding reception at the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia. From there we drove back to North Carolina. Phew!

Fellowship on the Patio
We went up to Owen J. Roberts High School campus to watch a baseball game of Great-Grandson David Raifsnider. While we were there, Andy and I took the opportunity to photowalk the stadium and sports fields. They were completely different from when we went to school there.
Evidently, the Owen J. Roberts school district now how has tons of disposable income, and doesn't mind spending it on superfluous things like astroturf football, girls lacrosse, and soccer fields, new bleachers, and union teachers.
We made the kids pose in front of the 200+ year old house where their fathers lived as children.
From there we walked next door to the church for the 8:30 service to see the AED get dedicated. It was great to see that the money that so many people donated may help somebody else avoid Mom's fate.
We drove from there to Ambler to drop off the kids with our Uncle Roger, and then down to Center City Philadelphia to the Four Seasons Hotel. The celebration was great, and we all had a wonderful time.

A Brunch of Flowers
Back up to Ambler, picked up the kids around 5, and made the eight hour drive home. A whole month's worth of fun in two short days and 800 miles.
