trying to play “catch up” with my blog right now and wanted to share some photos from a day trip our family took last month to philly to see my sister and her husband and also walk through the new temple open house with our kids. whenever we go down to philly i’m reminded just how close it is to new york, and wonder why we don’t make the quick trip more often. that reading terminal market is worth the 3 hour drive alone! always the best food! but getting to spend time with family will always take the cake. so grateful they took time off work when we arrived to hang out with us! my kids are seriously obsessed with those two (for good reason!) so we had a great day.
more photos from our day…
when you’re super little and can’t quite reach up to give proper “bunny ears,” but you think it’s just the funniest thing anyway. haha! eleanor was cracking me up trying to give bunny ears to her uncle!
this sandwich from dinic’s doesn’t exactly photograph well, but it is one of my favorite things at reading terminal market and josh and i split one every time we go.
that tiny tongue!!!!
when josh shaves his beard and i’m like, are you 24?! such a baby!!!!
also, major thanks for being willing to always carry my bag josh. even when it’s super pink. ;)
the new philadelphia temple. :)
can’t ever pass up a chance to jump stairs! these guys are professionals at giving me heart attacks every other hour in life.
thanks to my sister rachel for taking this photo for us!
that philidelphia temple is just beautiful and it was a very sweet experience getting to walk through the inside with my family and see it before its dedication. our church’s temples all around the world are open to anyone all ages who would like to walk through and see it for themselves for a few weeks before it is dedicated. i remember being a little girl and walking through a temple open house when i was young, and i remember it impacting me in a way i’m thankful for all these years later, so i was excited for my kids to have that chance to walk through and kind of take it all in.
hope to see you again soon, philly!
