Weekend in Philly

Took a quick weekend trip to Philadelphia, PA to meet up with our Son Brett who is stationed at DOVER AFB. Brett recommended Philly as our meet up location when we last saw him and boy did we have a great time.

Yes, he is way taller than me.

We arrived at 4:30pm in Philly – Brett drove in early in the day swung over to pick us up at the airport. We rented an Airbnb – an apartment on the third floor (no elevator) 3 blocks from the convention center and right in the middle of everything we wanted. The started the Weekend with a stop at Reading Terminal, which closes at 6pm …. so we missed that and moved onto walking around China Town. These are some of the best pictures of that time.

After walking around for about an hour, David noticed an stairway down into what looked like a underground food court, we stopped and had a craft drink – me a Peach Champagne, David had a Tea infused Bourbon, and Brett also had a drink – but honestly we cannot remember the type. The most memorable part was sitting at the bar stools watching the work put into each drink and talking with Brett about the best part of his job and how proud I am of how he seems so happy. How he decided not to sit at home and do nothing, so see the world – live his dream. Proud Momma Moments for sure. Oh, and the Bao Bar – had Seaweed Topped hot dogs – ha! My review is – out of the way, fun craft drinks with a unique feel – we did not try the food, but only because we were so full. This is the YELP review of the Bao Bar – https://www.yelp.com/biz/the-bao-bar-philadelphia

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)
