Hi everyone,

I write to share two final pictures of our family vacation in Philadelphia in the summer of 1999.

We were there the Fourth of July and enjoyed Philadelphia’s Beautiful Parade and in evening we attended a jazz festival in the park. Here, you see Gabrielle on the way to the festival and, though you do not see us, rest for sure we are a few feet away, and she, Bennie, and I had a special time sitting on the ground and listening to jazz, a social moment with her, during our busy education vacation.

I hope you enjoy the photographs.
