This year's Annual Meeting (for Mary's company) was in Philadelphia; and while Mary had to work most of the time, Shannon came up for the weekend and was able to do a little sightseeing... hurrah!

Here's the highlights:
  • liberty bell
  • independence hall
  • u.s. federal reserve
  • e's alley
  • philadelphia museum of art
  • rocky statue & steps
  • city hall
  • love park
  • south philly - bridget foy's & jim's steaks

Mary enjoyed a delicious philly cheesesteak at jim's - thanks KP for the insider tip ;)

It seems Mary was a good luck charm of sorts as the Phillies won the NL championship while she was in town - now they're on to the world series! Yeah!!! Go Phillies - We were hoping for a showdown with the yankees, but we'll just have to see.

All in all, a good trip and a good meeting, but after being away for so long we both agree - there's just no place like home! :)

We've prepared the fabulous photo slideshow below to give you the highlights from our trip.
