We’ve been traveling, and it took me a bit to recover before I got to posting.
We had two main purposes of our trip:
1. to collect the boys back from their dad while we visit family in Connecticut and
2. to collect the last of our belongings in storage back in Massachusetts. We moved to Virginia six years ago. The time had come.
But the first stop for Honey, Toots and me was Philadelphia, PA. I had been emailing with a couple that are college friends of mine from the late 80s. I hadn’t seen them since then. They offered, why don’t we meet you as you pass by? Initial thought was that we don’t usually go north by way of Philly, we usually go an easterly route, but as we were aiming for Western Mass, why not? They have a couple of boys closer to Toots’s age than to my boys. Besides, why not show Toots the Liberty Bell? I think I saw it when I was about six years old and maybe again when I was looking at colleges. Boy, has that part of Philly changed since I can recall!
So enjoy some pics of our minute wanderings from Chinatown to the Historic District. These are all cellphone shots. I have yet to go through what I got with the other camera.
It was nice to have a break on the road, eat some good food, see some old friends and meet their kids. Their boy #2 was very sweet and protective of of Toots. Both boys were loads of fun.
And then we got back on the road, more pics to come.
