As I mentioned, we went to Philadelphia last weekend. The main point was catching the annual Philadelphia Flower Show, which Brent has always wanted to see. I'd love to show you some gorgeous pictures I took, but as it happens we left all our luggage at the hotel since our room wasn't ready, and that included the 2 cameras that are usually glued to my hip. Oh well, there's always next year!
A perk of traveling to Philly is that my parents live close enough to pop over from Jersey, so they met us for dinner and got a chance to spend time with their adorable grandson (who by the way, was an absolute angel during a several hour dinner).
Here's some more from the sculpture plaza we came across. Giant monopoly game pieces - but interestingly no Scotty dog. Isn't that everyone's favorite?
Sunday morning we checked out the "Please Touch" museum, specifically geared for young kids to put their hands on everything.
Joe Joe got to operate an excavator, drive a race car, and steer a bus.
A touching "like father, like son" moment: in the kitchen Joseph pretended he was baking. Melts my heart!
He loved the grocery store too. What is it with this kid and carbs?
Very cool water play area, and they have waterproof smocks for the kids to wear.
Also a fun "Alice in Wonderland" zone, where we ended the day with a tea party next to the Mad Hatter and March Hare, and headed back to DC.
