Philadelphia Zoo

On a suggestion from "A" we decided to visit the zoo today. I had bought the four entrance pass for Philly and wanted to be sure we did that before we left.

This vacation went catastrophically wrong in so many ways and yet it also went right in some important ones. The firsts we had... Continue Reading →
