American Village & Star Wars

On Independence Day, the family (minus myself, since I was still stuck in Philly) went to American Village for the festivities and fireworks there.

Karate Katie

Well, Tang Soo Do isn’t quite Karate, but close enough.  Katie recently earned her first belt above the white belt, which for her is a white with orange stripe.  Rob actually helped her and her class with their forms before their test.

The new belt!

Touring Philly

The day after the battleship visit, I took in some of the most famous sights in Philadelphia.  First I went downtown and saw the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, and then I drove out to Valley Forge, which is just outside Philly.

Battleship New Jersey

Two weeks ago, I managed to finally get a whole weekend to myself, so I was able to go see some of the sights in Philadelphia.  First on my list was the U.S.S. New Jersey, anchored just across the river.

Fort Mifflin

I haven’t been able to get out much here in Philly, but back on May 9th, I did take some time out to go see Fort Mifflin.  It was a Revolutionary War era fort that was used up through 1952.  I only learned about it because I flew over it – it’s right next to the airport, off the east end of the runway!

Some of the buildings inside the earth walls. See what I mean about the airport?

more spring pics

Hey whaddya know, I figured out how to get the pictures off my phone!  Tiny little removable memory card I got today (better not sneeze around this thing).  Our phones don’t have the best camera (pretty lousy actually), but it’s better than nothing.

Daniel playing in the sandbox. He really likes it there!

Spring (Summer?!?) update

Sorry about the lack of updates, but work has kept me….. occupied.  I’ve been stuck in Philadelphia since late January (2 weeks there, weekend home, wash, rinse, repeat) doing work for the company site there.  I’m ready to be home now.  Thankfully my last day there will be July 9th.  Anyway, since I’ve been stuck here, I haven’t had an opportunity to upload any pictures we took, so now I’m taking the time to backfill some.  As soon as I figure out an easy way to get the pictures off my phone, I’ll load some from that as well.

After Christmas, we went to the Tennessee Aquarium.
