President’s Day in Philadelphia

No better time than President’s day to go to Philly, am I right? But boy howdy was it frigid….the wind was like daggers. There was a storm the night before, it extended to us near Baltimore as well. Other than being super uncomfortably cold whenever we stepped outside there were hardly any people out and about, making site seeing conveniently uncrowded.

Anyways, so Philadelphia, where it’s always sunny, had a few points of interest for us. We saw the Liberty Bell, the original White House building foundation/excavation site, went to Benjamin Franklin’s Museum, print shop replica, and grave, the Constitution Museum, and finally the Mütter Museum (of the college of physicians of Philadelphia). The Mütter Museum was really cool, definitely made the trip worthwhile. There are no photos allowed there, so I pulled photos from the internet for you to see….I’m sure you can figure out which belong to that museum.

We also stopped at Brandywine High School just outside of Wilmington, Delaware (just outside of Philly), where if I remember Dad saying he went to high school there for a year or so. If it’s the wrong place, than I merely took some random pictures. Also, you can see in one of the pictures the back of our very blue car (and the rest of it) is white. We had to stop multiple times during the drive to clean off the anti-ice salt residue from the windows, lights, and license plate. When Justin and I parked (once in a garage and once on the street in Philly), we got a little panicked because it took us forever to find our car because it didn’t look like our car.

Enjoy the photos! Oh and the random photo of the dog in snow booties, lol.
