Philly Part 2 {Personal}

Sorry this took forever. :) 
We went out for breakfast in a cute little family restaurant area in a shopping market every morning. I decided to order their ham, which they warned was extremely salty, and not for the weak-of-heart. Never has anyone made a truer statement. Wow. That was the most intensely salty thing I have ever eaten. Every bite had about 2 week's worth of salt in it, and I am so glad I ordered chocolate milk to go along. haha

Parallel parking is insane there. Just thought I'd show a little glimpse of it. This is what it looks like on both ends of each car. haha

Can you imagine this street 200 years ago? :)

We walked a million blocks down to the harbor from our hotel and my mom and bro got to tour the insides of a submarine and a really old ship. They said it was incredible. =D

Even though there were many, uh, lets just say 'interesting' couples there, I saw a few cute ones. :)

Sorry, just a random pic. You have no idea how cool it was to feel like Padme for a day. =D

The reason we were in Philly was because my dad was attending a medical conference. One night, we were invited to attend a high-star dinner at the National Constitution Center. It was an amazing building packed with history showed in ways that were so neat and interesting that you wanted to go on and on. History cannot get better than that. Anyways, it was a fantastic dinner. I have never been offered caviar, roasted bone marrow, sushi, and chicken with their legs sticking up in little curls before. We had a live harpist entertain us, and were served by really kind people, including several cute boys. ;)

I am so sorry, my camera didn't do a good job at capturing anything that night. haha

The next day, we went to see Benjamin Franklin's house 'remains', his printing shop, the Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell.

Wow, those pictures bring back memories. Please please tell me you went to Elfreth's Alley and/or Christ's Church?
