As we settle in tonight to prepare for a day checking out the landmarks in Philadelphia’s historic Independence Park, I wanted to share the highlights of the first day of our roadtrip. We kicked our adventure off by picking up Noah from his last day of pre-school in our Twizzlers van being sure to take along plenty of Twizzlers to hand out to the inquisitive four and five year olds. From there we headed home to load up the van for our weekend excursion.
With our suitcase packed, our Twizzlers and bottles of water ready, and the kids waving from the back row of the Twizzlers van, we were ready to leave Washington, DC headed north towards Philly!
From our Twizzler van we watched Baltimore go by, continuing north through Delaware to Pennsylvania. We joined the thousands of other people leaving the city for the Memorial Day weekend, only we had something they didn’t – a bag full of Twizzlers! We settled in and enjoyed the time together, taking in the view of the harbor and skyline.
Once we arrived in Philadelphia, we settled in to our hotel and enjoyed a stroll around the Independence Park area, enjoying pizza on Market Street before returning back for a quick swim in the hotel pool. Before heading to bed, Emma took a look at the city beginning to come to life as the sun set.
Tomorrow – we take our Twizzlers to some of the nation’s oldest landmarks! See you there!
