Philly Road Trip!

May 6, 2017
Once we arrived at our destination, we met my family for dinner. Nathan realized how close we were to Philadelphia and the famous Philly Cheesesteaks, so we planned a quick side trip Saturday morning to see the highlights in Philadelphia. If you know my family, we are very planned with our schedules. However, everyone took the spontaneous trip with stride! My dad and sister came along while Kylie stayed at the hotel with Grandma Pam.
Our timing was perfect. We were in the first group to enter the building with the Liberty Bell.

We then picked up our (free) timed tickets for a tour of Independence Hall. The park ranger gave a detailed tour of the history of the 1776 events including the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Here is a picture of Grandpa Al, Jaden, and Evan in the room where the Declaration of Independence was signed.

As we walked to Elfreth's Alley, we were able to see Betsey Ross's home, the birthplace of the American Flag.  
 Elfreth's Alley is our nation's oldest residential street dating back to 1702. So amazing to walk through.

Of course, we saved the best for last: Philly Cheesesteaks! 
Nathan did a taste test with Pat's and Geno's. There were no leftovers, but he said he liked Geno's slightly better.
