On Three Day Weekends, We Travel {Philadelphia Edition}

My husband and I both have good friends who live near Philadelphia. We visited them in 2013 over Christmas break, so we thought it was time to head that way again, especially since we live closer now.

Our flight was only an hour long! How amazing is that?!

We hung out with Michelle, my best friend from college, and her husband Matt on Friday night and Saturday. Then, we headed to Dan's best friend since 5th grade, Lydia's place with her fiancée Cait. We had a lot of fun with them both, but we somehow managed to only take pictures on Saturday. Oops.

I had a sinus infection (and what I think is an ear infection as well) while we were gone, and that was no fun. I also lost my voice completely for the first time ever, and it's still not back. I hate that so much. I managed to have fun anyway, but sleeping in my own bed was fabulous. And then some more on my couch. Sleep is definitely what I needed.

Anyway, onto the pictures of our weekend!

First stop: Liberty Bell and all of its cracked gloriousness! 

We did lots of Ben Franklin things... and it was so cool because it was his birthday! More on that later...

See? Told ya it was his birthday! We celebrated at the National Constitution Center! 

And then we posed as presidents... not very well.

The trip was quick, but we had fun... and we're definitely happy to be home with our three little furballs! 
  • How did you spend your three day weekend if you had one?
  • Have you been to Philadelphia? 
  • What's your go-to quick destination?


  1. What a fun trip!! :) I would love to visit there someday.

  2. Looks like you had a great time! I'm so jealous Dan gets so many 3 day weekends!

  3. Sounds like such a fun trip. I hope you are feeling better and that you get your voice back soon!

  4. Fun! I would so love to visit there.

    And we usually always fly Southwest.

  5. What I wouldn't give to spend MLK weekend in Philly. I've never been to those cool places and I love to see them in pictures. Although I can complain about my weekend too much. I went to Ronald Reagan presidential museum which was pretty cool too :)

  6. Fun! Philly is definitely on my list of places to visit. No fun that you were sick though! :(

  7. I love seeing people I know in pictures! I mean I know you in real life, but yea, you know what I mean!
