Our week in Philly

What a week.  I took Cass, Caden and Riss to Philadelphia.  Cassidy and Marisa were nominated to attend a very cool Science Camp that was at Rider University.  Marisa studied Engineering and made a model of a wing of a museum and Cassidy studied CSI and cracked a case by using all kinds of clues and investigation skills.  They were in camp about 9 hours a day.  While the kids were in camp, Caden got to spend a couple of days with Cousin Liam having a blast and drove all over to meet friends for lunch.  In 5 days I used 60 GALLONS of gas!!  Holy smokes.  We lived on a steady diet of Philly soft pretzel’s, Rita’s water ice and Wawa…lol!! Philly Peeps…..April and I had lunch at the Brick and Brew in Havertown. Our friend Tommy Kane is one of the owners, it was really really good, check it out if you have the chance!!   Cassie’s class did the best cheer, they made it up themselves. The were called the “Pistachio’s, Cracking One Case at a Time”  Here is the video, so cute.

Our first day we dropped off the bags and went directly to Rita's Water Ice and ate there every single day.  Gelati was a huge hit for the upstate NY crew
