philly

we spent the labor day weekend in the city of brotherly love.  i don't know why it's known as such.   do you?


we visited some historical sites. the husband learned what the liberty bell is.  i learned that what they taught us about the liberty bell in school is a lie.  


i got a little bit of a work out...


...gosh that's heavy.


we also indulged. heavily.  i recommend a visit to morimoto (a restaurant of one of the japanese iron chefs) if you ever make it to philadelphia.  if you don't know what an iron chef is, i'm not sure we can be friends.   

just kidding.  

kind of.

  1. those dominoes are awesome! for some reason i thought the city of brotherly love nickname had something to do with unions, but wikipedia says i'm wrong. "Popular nicknames for Philadelphia are Philly and The City of Brotherly Love, the latter of which comes from the literal meaning of the city's name in Greek (Greek: Φιλαδέλφεια ([pʰilaˈdelpʰeːa], Modern Greek: [filaˈðelfia]) "brotherly love", compounded from philos (φίλος) "loving", and adelphos (ἀδελφός) "brother")."
