Philly-ish Day 1

As I am writing this, Kev is sitting at the desk on the other side of the hotel room doing "homework." I mean come on, how old are we? Do we still need homework?

In all actuality I don't mind that we are quarantined to the hotel room, because I am really battling a bad cold.

All day, my body just ached, my throat felt like I had swallowed glass and I am stuffed up and coughing up green aliens. (I apologize if that was too much information.)

It all started out with Kev having a stuffy nose. Then when I went to Best Buy on Friday, the guy who was showing us the 3D televisions had an awful cold. So thanks to these two, I am now sick.

But, I am feeling a lot better and I think a little R&R this evening will make me almost new.

Even though I was feeling under the weather, my parents and I had a nice day.

We started off the day by going to Longwood Gardens, which is right outside of Philly. We have gone there before, but the place is always so beautiful each time it is like a new adventure.

Over the summer they are featuring the science of perfume making. They had little kiosks throughout the gardens featuring different types of flowers and different perfume samples to sniff. They even had a machine that you could mix your own sample of perfume.

After Longwood Gardens we went shopping in a few craft stores in Kitchen Kettle Village and Bird-In-The-Hand.

We went out to eat dinner at a great place called Ruby's Diner. It is a beautiful diner that features great food at great prices and great service. It is a chain restaurant, so if you ever have a chance to eat at one, please do. You won't be disappointed.

As far as tomorrow goes, I am not sure what is going on. I am just hoping that I feeling a little better. Wish me luck!
