our long weekend

We had such a great time in Philly over Labor Day weekend!  I have to say that in the years that my sister has lived there, I didn't spend much time at all trying to get to know the city or see what it had to offer.  This time was different.  We took our time, strolled around the tree-lined streets, peeked inside some gorgeous townhouses and saw these colorful doorways by Rittenhouse Square.  

We ate cheesesteaks, took Jackson to the Please Touch Museum, walked along the Schuylkill River, dipped our feet in the fountain at Logan Square, had a blast at the biggest playground I've ever seen, and went to some great gastropubs and bakeries (and didn't have to wait a second for a table!).  

Philly is such a lovely city with plenty of things to do and see - especially for Jackson!  Can't wait to visit you again, Ding!
