As most of you probably know, I spent two years living in Philly after I graduated from college. This past weekend Peter, Alethea and I took a family vacation to Philadelphia. It was sort of a 3 year wedding anniversary gift for us, although, I have to admit, the trip was more for me than for Peter. I know I married a great guy when he’s willing to spend his family vacation of the year visiting my old friends. The trip wasn’t a total loss for Peter though, as we were able to procure genuine south Philly cheese steaks:
We also got to take Alethea to Love Park, which is where Peter proposed to me 4 years ago:
Friends were visited, including many of the seniors from the senior community center where I worked as well as my two former roommates, Katie Jo and Ann.
Alethea was a trooper and everyone enjoyed meeting her. She even did pretty well on the airplane with only a few squawks here and there to indicate her boredom.
Over all, I’d say the trip was a success. It was so nice to catch up with old friends and enjoy city living once more.
