On Tuesday we all went to Philadelphia for the day. I'm not sure what we didn't see. We went everywhere! Valley Forge, the Magic Garden (a really neat art display..thing), Independence Hall, Center City, Boathouse Row, and up by the Art Museum at night. It was a jam-packed day, but tons of fun!
It made me incredibly happy to see a reference to the Bible, considering we were founded as a Christian nation.

Quick side note, quick, promise! Philadelphia's founder, William Penn, was a Quaker. He was given the land of Pennsylvania from the English King, and he founded it to be a place of religious freedom for his fellow Quaker brethren. Where was I going with this? Right..Philadelphia's means Brotherly Love, hence, the city of Brotherly Love. So, right by City Hall they have Love Park, with a giant love statue!
