Wordless & Wordfull Wednesday ~ Philadelphia!

Sunday I came back from my conference early and we took the kids to Philadelphia for the day.  The weather was absolutely perfect to walk around and see the sights!  We ate lunch, walked down to Penn's Landing where they have the battleships docked, Nick really enjoyed seeing their guns.






We then went to Christ Church, one of the oldest churches in the US, founded in 1695.  Some of the famous people who worshiped at this church were George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Robert Morris, Betsy Ross....and the list goes on.  Benjamin Franklin and four other signers of the Declaration Of Independence are buried at the cemetery there.















To top the day off we stopped by Franklin Fountain, which was featured on the Travel Channel, to share in a yummy ice cream sundae!  It's a old time ice cream shop that specializes in home made desserts and treats.  We all share the Franklin Mint Chip  Here is a little blurb about what was in it (taken from their website) "A signature Franklin flavor is our White Peppermint ice cream swirled with green creme de menthe and dark bittersweet chocolate chunks. "Green or White?" we are always asked... Franklin, the great peacemaker, would have had both. It will satisfy the world."

It was a fun day!  

Happy Wordless Wednesday!  For More Check Out....
