Today my boyfriend and I went on a field trip to Philadelphia! We had the most wonderful time! The city is so beautiful and peaceful. We first went to a really cool museum. Then we saw a beautiful fountain in the middle of the city:

I was surprised to see that Philadelphia had such beautiful buildings throughout the city. It was so much fun to just walk around and absorb how beautiful it was.

Philadelphia also has some neat artsy monuments throughout the city. It's interesting to watch them and try to understand what they were.

There were also some pretty flowers :)

Oh, another thing that I thought was super original was that one area had a bunch of BIG board game items. So it had chess pieces, checker pieces, etc. It was pretty neat!

We also got to see some beautiful parks. The weather was lovely and I really enjoyed walking around holding my boyfriend's hand :)

We even got to eat a Philadelphia cheese steak sandwich! (Even if it was just from Quiznos... jeje)

The trip was actually organized to see the "Love Park". The park was very pretty, but sadly the water fountain wasn't on at the time. Nevertheless, I fell in love with the city. It was such a wonderful day. Have any of you ever been to Philadelphia?

  1. I was just in Philly in November and have pictures of us trying not to get crushed by the falling dominoes! I'll have to go back soon just to take in the museums and such.

  2. You look beautiful! That cherry color is perfect on you. I like the print on your dress and LOVE your tights! I also like how it's really bright but you toned it down a bit with a gray sweater. Nice :) Looks like you had a fun day! Thanks for sharing. :D
