Independence Hall

We drove from Washington D.C. to Philly, PA. You have to have tickets to tour Independence Hall, and we, of course, hadn't planned ahead enough. They do have tickets available every day, but they start giving them out at 8:00am...good one! Like We're going to make it there with the kiddo's! However, they were doing an open house without tickets in the evening, so we lucked out and got to tour it anyway. I'm so grateful to the men who signed the Declaration of Independence and all they sacrificed for the birth of our country.
The other American Icon here is the Liberty Bell, which used to hang in Independence Hall. You can Tell our little Bubber is not having as much fun as the rest of us. He's tired of going all these places where we have to tour, and walk, and keep quite, and not touch anything! He keeps asking "is this our last campground?" "When is our trip over?" Sorry, Bub...someday you'll thank us!
