Vacation continued...Philadelphia

As promised, here are some more photos from our summer road trip. These are from our day in Philadelphia. The kids were troopers. Yes, they had their moments as overtired kids do, but overall it was a great day in Philly!

That city has so much history. So amazing to think that we stood in various places where our forefathers stood. Where they pledged to lead our nation under God. So sad to see how far our country has strayed from that original Godly vision of government. But I digress.

On to the photos...

The Liberty Bell


The clock tower from the Franklin Institute Museum. Our kids recognized it from the movie 'National Treasure,' so they were excited!


Jason and the kids running up the famous Rocky steps. The kids had no idea why they were doing this as they of course haven't seen Rocky, but they were happy to humor us anyway...




hmmm...what can I say about this photo? Yes, that is a man with his shirt off. Yes, the other man is in fact bouncing a basketball in the fountain...


Chloe having one of those 'moments' I was talking about...




The city of brotherly love...






Which original Philadelphia cheese steak joint is the best? Geno's Steaks...


Or Pat's Steaks...


The two establishments are a mere block apart and both claim the title of 'best' cheese steak restaurant. Jason's verdit...


They're both pretty tasty...


I think it was a tie!

And here's us saying goodbye to Philadelphia through the smog. Hope to see you again someday!
