Nothing Happened.

All over Philadelphia there are signs giving you information about historic sites and houses.  But this person decided to go the sarcastic route with their historical marker!

"On this site in 1897 Nothing Happened"

Saturday Cutie

Since its Saturday I thought I'd post something a little different than usual.  This is my dog, Rocky!  This photo is from Rittenhouse Square.  He didn't get any cupcakes, though he tried!  But, he did enjoy the jazz music with us.

Bridge View

View of the Ben Franklin bridge from Race St.  I love this neighborhood (Olde City)!  It is so pretty and has the cutest stores!

Jazz Guys

Cool cats playing jazz in Rittenhouse Square.  Not sure of the name of this band, but they were really good!

Happy Monday!

Statues of the Phillies Phanatic can be found all over the city.  I'm thinking its a form of artwork.  They are all made a little differently and this one looked like Franenstien-Phanatic!  Go Phillies!

Franklin Park, between 6th and 7th.

Pink Snow

It's spring time and these trees are blooming all over!  They are so beautiful and when the wind blows its like pink snow!  There are pink piles of flower petals all over the city, but I think its really pretty.  Happy Friday!

Out of town...

In case you are wondering why I haven't been posting I am out-of-town, visiting my sister in Portland, OR!  I will resume posting Philly pics on Monday! :-)  In the meantime, please enjoy this dolphin picture my husband just took  in Sarasota, FL.

How cute is this little guy?!
