When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade

Last week I wrote about some sad things happening in my life, one of which was my inability to go to my son’s field trip.  Here was my solution:  take both kids on a field trip of my own.  Here are some highlights of our trip to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia!

  1. Do I even want to ask what that big tube with the slit is?


  2. The big heart! And is that fountain in front of the Barnes museum? Now I want to take a field trip. This is so heart warming and just love the photos. What a beautiful family. You look terrific.


    • Hmmm… now I need to figure out exactly where we were, I’m not super familiar with that part of the city. We were on our way to lunch (Kite and Key), and the fountain was along that route, near Callowhill and 19th… is the Barnes Museum near there?

      Take the field trip, it is definitely worth it 🙂


      • I believe it is. It is near the Franklin and Rodin museum. We came across it after visiting Sister Cities park, which has this neat multi-tiered water feature A. loves wading in. There are so many hidden gems in the city.


  3. Looks like a fantastic day out for all of you! Too far for me, but maybe I’ll go one day 😉 xx


  4. Hi Josie! What a great idea! Love the pics! And OMG that’s some artery. Lol! If you ever come visit DC, I can be your tour guide! 🙂


    • Oooh, we should plan that! Train ride with kids, and we can flip flop being tour guides for one another… sounds like a blast!


      • That sounds awesome! We haven’t actually gone sight seeing in DC in a while, it’s like when you live here it doesn’t seem that excusing! Lol!

        Btw. I know you commented on my Tween post, but I don’t know where it went! Anyway, thank you so much, I read it few times, it was very helpful – yes, don’t be so hard to myself and try not to lose it when you can! Good advice! Thanks Josie! Hugs.
