I really do have pictures from Philadelphia! I can now actually share them with you since I have a decent internet connection AND a computer that will read the card! Without further ado, day one of our trip:
We hit four main “attractions” on our first day in Philly. We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Old City, and were within walking distance of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. We had to get tickets to tour Independence Hall, and while we were waiting for the tour to begin, we rushed through the Liberty Bell exhibit. We thought the bell was part of the tour, so we didn’t spend a lot of time in there. Little did we know….I’m glad we at least got photos.
(George Washington once sat in the chair against the wall in the photo below. I thought that was pretty cool)
After the tour, we walked back to the hotel and grabbed our rental car. We then drove to Edgar Allan Poe’s home. He lived in multiple homes during his stay in Philadelphia, but this is the only one still standing.

It was after the museum that things took a turn for the worse. We got lost (stupid GPS) in downtown Philadelphia, skipped lunch altogether and headed to Exton, Pa. My husband got sick once we arrived at the hotel and I went to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner by myself. We also had the impending weather to worry ourselves with…
I’ll save the wedding post for another day. Photos are up on my flickr account, though.
