Philadelphia

For Christmas Billie Jo offered to house and supervise Eric for a weekend during 2014 enabling Kathryn and I to take a weekend vacation.  We planned a weekend with the Helmer’s in visiting historic sites in Philadelphia.  We drove down Friday afternoon and ate at a German Restaurant Friday evening.

Saturday we had perfect weather as we visited the Liberty Bell, Assembly Hall, took a historic walk, visited the Ben Franklin museum, ate in an authentic restaurant and took a ghost walk.
