reading terminal market

i've got a LOT of photos and stories leftover from camp. for the next few weeks, get ready for some tales from this summer that i was too busy to tell as they were happening :)

on our days off, most people were obsessed with having adventures in the surrounding cities. there were a lot of international staff, who i think saw camp as a way to see/ experience the united states. i can see why they were eager to flee the second they had free time.

i usually preferred to stay on camp- relaxing from the rigorous schedule, and taking in the calm surroundings. however, on this day i chose to go to go with some friends to reading terminal market in philly.

i've been to philly twice, but have never visited here. it reminded me of quincy market in boston, or pike place market in seattle... a bunch of stalls where you buy various things. it was mostly food, but you would also see things like the honey products, or flowers above. it was really cute!!

i snagged one of these red velvet whoopie pies, which i was really excited to try. sooo good...

  8. Awe, so much fun! I'd love to go get lost in the city ... ANY city! Geez, where I live is so quiet it is nerve-racking. I'm surprised I haven't lost it ... yet, ha.

    Wow! How many different states have you been to? Have you ever been to Cali?

    And by the way, is it just me or Lynnette is really tall? Hehe.

    Have a great day! And hope you have cool plans for the weekend! ;D As for me, I think we're going to see our youngest niece take am archery class and might even take one ourselves :). I know I've said it before, but it's so cool to have you back! :D

  10. This makes me want to visit Philly again. The only time I have ever been was with a church youth group trip on a tour of soup kitchens. A flambouyant priest showed us around a little of the city and said something like, "GIRL let me show you the best Philly cheese steaks."

    That's all I remember.

    You're adorable!
