In Philadelphia we did a walking tour of Historic Philadelphia. We got to see the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the U.S. Mint, the Constitution Museum, Betsy Ross' House, Ben Franklin's Grave, and other things I'm sure I'm forgetting. Everything was really close to each other, so we were able to walk the whole day. It was absolutely gorgeous weather, so it was very enjoyable. We made sure to get a Philly Cheese Steak for dinner and made a quick stop to the "Rocky Steps" at the Philadelphia Art Museum. We ran up them (there really aren't that many) and took dorky pictures. It was great! Then we had a long trip back to Connecticut that night, but Angie did a great job driving...and we did manage to keep ourselves entertained by singing (see my previous post!).
Elsie and I headed back to Boise on Wednesday. I was excited to get home and see Aaron. We missed him very much...and I know he missed us! I am so grateful I got to go on this trip with my family and see this part of the country. Now, I've just got to figure out when I'm going to get back there with Aaron!
