I am back with some more smash-booking!! This time it focuses around our 2nd anniversary trip to Philadelphia. I didn't share our 1st anniversary because we didn't go on a trip persay, just to a local haunted house type thing @ Jason's Woods and had dinner at our reception site prior. No majorly fun momentos other than our tickets for the haunted stuff. Anyway, our 2nd year trip was also focused on some haunty stuff... this time at the Eastern State Penitentiary which is literally an old jail turned into a haunted experience. While neither of us were MAJORLY scared, it was pretty creepy knowing someone was so close to you that they could make a noise or sweep past you and scare the living you know what out of you.
The fun part about smashbooks are these fun pages that have (sometimes) crazy stuff printed on them. This time it worked out SO perfectly. Almost to the point of being SCARY (no pun intended). Seriously though, it gave me a great place to outline our favorites about the other place we visited- THE FRANKLIN INSTITUTE. What really drew us there was the Mummies!! It was so neat to hear their stories.. or rather what part of history these mummies lives through and represent for their era. Lots of amazing things that we were not aware of. Aside from the mummies we did have great times in other areas of the museum and literally spent the WHOLE day there. There are so many other museums we want to visit in Philly and will definitely spent more time there soon!
Philly really IS more fun when you sleep over!!
We are so blessed to live relatively close that we could go for a day trip by train (some day) or stay the whole weekend and have a pretty quick commute home.
