Birthdays and grandsons

All three of my daughter’s sons were born in June. I wanted to do something special for them and asked them for suggestions.

After vetoing the first three,
                                          No! I can't walk and chew gum
                                           No! and don't ask again.

                                               Hell no!                                                         
 we settled on a day in Philly, but we had to hold off on the trip because I was busy getting things ready for my trip to California.

Jimmy has a job now, so he was unable to spend the day out with us and I missed his editorial comments on the trip.
Josh and Nathan love going to China town
and especially to their favorite restaurant, the Empress Garden.
We had a fine lunch and then headed over to the Philadelphia Visitor’s Center to purchase tickets.

The boys wanted to ride on a double decker bus and take a tour of the city. I’ve never done this, so we were all excited to try it out. We chose the Big Bus.

Here we are before the bus starts the tour.
It was a very hot day so we didn’t look as perky at the end of the ride,
 but… the tour guide knew his stuff and we did enjoy the tour.

                                          And we may have even spotted Elvis!                                 

We took the train back to Jersey and met my husband at the Pop Shop.
 Best place for Ice Cream.
After the ice cream, we went to see a movie, which I wasn’t so sure that I wanted to see because it was yet another movie about Spiderman. How many ways can you see Spiderman before you get bored?

I was pleasantly surprised at how good it turned out to be.

Next week, I’ll be going to Laurel Hill Cemetery
 to do a little ghost hunting
                                                         Ghosts Among Our Graves:
Paranormal Investigation of Laurel Hill Cemetery
Saturday, July 21, 8:00pm
 and I’m sure that I’ll have some great pictures to share with you on my next blog.

Have a great weekend and a productive week.
