We saw the Liberty Bell along with hundreds of other people!
We visited the tomb of the unknown Revolutionary War Soldier.
And the gravesite of Benjamin Franklin and his wife, Deborah.
He had written his own epitaph when he was young as seen on this plaque - but he didn't use it on his grave!
This pirate named Jesse drove us through the streets in a horse drawn buggy with continuous interesting commentary
Then he graciously took our picture at the end of our ride. And I got to feed a big carrot to our horse named John.
We went on a tour of Independence Hall where the Declaration of Independence was debated and signed. This is the courtroom.
And this is the assembly room. If you've ever seen the play - 1776 - or the recent PBS production of John Adams - this room will look very familiar to you!And finally on Sunday - we attended a beautiful wedding - here is Kara and her Dad walking down the aisle in historic Old St. Joseph's Church.
The bride was attended by several very cute nephews and a niece as seen below. They were dancing the night away later at the reception - lasting longer than most of the adults! Below from the left are Brendon, Madelyn and Ryan.
This is the wedding card I made forKara & Justin - I posted it earlier in my blog.
And this is part of our gift to them - a small box of Thank You Cards. I posted this previously here .
Hope I haven't bored you to tears with these pictures of our weekend. Now I've got to get into my stamping room! I'm suffering from severe withdrawal! I'll be back later on with a new stamped offering!
Thanks so much for checking in today!
Today's quote from Poor Richard's Almanack by Ben Franklin: "Virtue may not always make a Face handsome, but Vice will certain make it ugly."
