Bye Philadelphia!

A beautiful sunrise to see us off!!!

Phillies Stadium

Couldn't go in, but enjoyed the store and statues outside the stadium. We bought Tyler a book that he can get stamped at every MLB game/stadium he goes to...got his first stamp in Philly!

Ben Franklin's Grave

"A penny saved is a penny earned," said Ben Franklin. It's tradition to place a penny on his grave.

Christ Church, Elfreth's Alley, Betsy Ross' House

City Tavern 2

Jeff and Poppy enjoyed a flight of beers brewed from the recipes of Washington, Jefferson, Franklin and Hamilton. The rest of us tried shrub--a drink made from the juices of the fruit that were preserved in vinegar over the winter. All were great! And we enjoyed Thomas Jefferson's favorite sweet potato bread cookies.

Lunch at City Tavern

We ate where George Washington ate! The room where everyone is standing in the picture is where the first Fourth of July celebration was and it held George Washington's inaugural ball!! Truthfully, the real building burned and was torn down, but they authentically rebuilt it in the same spot!!

The Mint!!!

Tyler's favorite part of the trip! Sorry, no pictures inside!!!
