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! :)
