Princeton Field Trip

Last Saturday, Neil needed to return a mound of books to the libraries at Princeton, so he and Nate decided to drive over and make it a day trip. I was excited for my first-ever voyage to New Jersey! It was a perfect day to walk around Princeton's gorgeous campus. Neil noted the atmosphere on Nassau Street seems quite similar to Franklin Street in Chapel Hill.
Neil explained Princeton's tradition of eating clubs, which I found fascinating. After I got home, I spent some time on Wikipedia reading up on all the traditions. (To do: read Fitzgerald's descriptions in This Side of Paradise.) For some reason, there were hardly any students out and about. We assumed they were studying for exams, but it was kind of bizarre -- it was such a gorgeous day!
Molly and her step-brother Oliver came with us. Since we had the dogs, we took advantage of a BBQ fundraiser and had some sandwiches outside. (Famous New Jersey BBQ? This may get me stripped of any remaining North Carolina citizenship! It was fine, but certainly not Bullocks.)
The dogs make quite a pair and attracted a lot of attention, especially from cute kiddos who wanted to know if it was okay to pet them. They were so worn out by the time we returned to the car, they were asleep by the time we pulled out of the parking garage!

Wondering if those darling pooches dined on bbq - if so they were tremendously tidy...and second question - did Nate eat that stack of sandwiches? No, don't tell me - I will just hope he shared.
