I don’t know if we’ll have time to see the Liberty Bell or the Continental Congress HQ, but at the very least we’ll try to give the kids a taste of the Franklin Institute and perhaps a Philly pretzel (I don’t think a Philly Cheesesteak will appeal to Chloe).
In the meantime, Maxime and Sophie are going to have a very social Saturday – a birthday party and holiday open house. Papa is going to have to make more small talk in the span of a few hours than he’s made in a very long time. It’ll be good for him. I’m sure they won’t miss us in the slightest.
Yesterday, Sophie drew her first portrait of our family. Chloe, Mommy, Sophie, Papa and Grammy all standing side-by-side. No eyes, noses or mouths, but five separate kidney bean shapes that she confidently identified for us. Another artist in training.
