Trip to Philadelphia

Bob and I reserved tickets for a tour at Independence Hall this morning for the three of us, so this morning at 8:00 am we were walking to the station to catch the train to Philadelphia.
 Once in the city we visited the Liberty Bell...
 ...then walked across the street to catch our tour.
 Here we see the room where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed.
And here was where all the details of those documents were hammered out. It was pretty neat to see where so much history took place.

Afterwards we walked to Reading Terminal Market where Bob and I enjoyed Jambalaya, and Rob had (of all things) a grilled cheese sandwich. With penuche fudge for dessert--yum!

It is so easy to ride the train into the city that we always wonder why we don't do it more often.
