So, today we spent another day in Philadelphia. First we went to the The Franklin Institute Science Museum
. There we enjoyed learning about electricity and the body. We also enjoyed the Star Wars display. (Well, actually, Adam and I about peed our pants. It was amazing! There were tons of props from the movies and costumes. The girls enjoyed it, but were not as excited. But now Rach actually wants to watch Star wars, so that’s an accomplishment.)
After that, we moved into Messiah’s Philadelphia, and ate a great meal at Temple’s cafeteria. (they have slushlies and hot/iced fancy coffee drinks!). Then we took the metro to Rittenhouse square, where we enjoyed a great view of the city from the park. (Especially Rach, who enjoyed being able to gaze at the buildings whilst standing amongst trees.)
Next, we walked around trying to find a coffee shop that was still open. Unbeknownst to us, around that area of Philadelphia, nothing is opened up at midnight. We searched until we got to cold to care about anything except for being in a warm building, when we found the nearest metro station and rode home.
Overall, it was a good day for all of us. It was a different experience than yesterday, but good.
Here are some pictures from the day:
