Thanks Brandi... I was waiting for someone to start the daily thread!
My weekend was great! My parents took a bus trip to Philly w/my sis & neice. My dad is a Mason, you know that thing that Fred Flinstone belongs to where they wear those big hats & stuff!
So they came to tour the Grand Lodge, and then spend a few hours in the city. I met up with them, since I live in the city. The lodge was beautiful, rich in architecture and history of our forefathers. Then we went to the new constitution center! If anyone had seen it before, it's a new building completely changed and very interactive for younger children. Then we went to see the Liberty Bell! It was amazing...seeing something that has been such a part of our history.
My only gripe is that security is so freakin heightened, it almost made it impossible to enjoy. You have to go through more to see the bell than the airport! We had to take the sleeping baby out of the stroller, and with 1 hand, close the stroller and shove it through the x-ray machine. Then they took my neices beloved "bunny" away and shoved that through the x-ray machine. Well she cried and cried.... I thought that was a bit much, how much could you hide in an umbrella stroller anyway?! We had to take off belts, bracelets, watches, sunglasses, cell phones, all change in your pockets. It was a bit much. But the bell was beautiful! And I got some great pics of Jazzy in front of it. She wants to take them to school, this is what they are studying the next year.
Happy Monday!!! Hope you all have a great day!!!
