Philadelphia: History and Deliciousness

Grandma at the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier (yes, that's its full name) in Washington Square.

Matthew loves him some cheesesteak.

The Franklin Fountain: some of the best ice cream ever, complete with retro decor, soda jerks, and old-fashioned flavors.

Grandma and I split a "Southern Sympathizer." It has rum raisin and pistachio ice cream, fudge sauce, whipped cream, praline candy, and pecans and pistachios on top.

Ice cream makes us happy. (This is my cousin Christen and I on the way home.)

Whenever my Aunt Darlene comes to visit, we have to go find an adventure. This time, it was a trip to Historic Philadelphia: Matthew, Christen, myself, Aunt Darlene, and Grandma. Oh, and Bailey the seeing eye puppy. Bailey was pretty good, all things considered, though she hated the fife and drum corps outside of Carpenter's Hall.
