A couple weeks ago Ryan had a work conference in Philly. The boys and I decided to tag along. Was it worth it? Was I glad I went? Yes. Was it a fabulous, relaxing weekend? Anything but. It was pretty much exhausting especially since I was riding solo most the weekend with the two little munchkins. We weren’t able to do a whole lot since the babies kind of cramped our touring style, but I don’t think I would have ever seen Philly otherwise, so for that reason, it was worth it. I’ll take of taste of a new city when I can get it over nothing at all…even if it’s just a sample.
They put us up in a swanky Marriot hotel right in the middle of downtown which was helpful. The first day the boys and I hit the town and didn’t last long window shopping before I realized I’d better find a park. So that’s where we spent most of the morning.
We came back to the hotel for naps and then spent the afternoon exploring the hotel. We rode the elevator and escalator countless times, discoved the various lobbies and conference rooms, and examined (tried to play with) the house keeping supplies.
The sleeping situation was the worst part. Lincoln ended up in the bed with us both nights. They both woke up multiple times coughing and crying. It wasn’t good.
And a couple random pics of Sawyer in between tours. He makes the most expressive faces.
Wish I could have seen and done more but it was good to get a taste. Cool city. Lots of History. Check it out if you get the chance. :)
