Belated Recap

Although the holiday weekend seems like ages ago, We had such an amazing time I just have to share! 
This was my first 4th of July that wasn't spent home in Chicago, and although I missed it terribly, there was something so powerful about being in Philadelphia for this holiday.  This is where it all started! 

And we did go to the all-you-can-eat ice cream fest...which was so yummy!
We also spent some time in Chinatown, at a Philly Pops concert, and of course at the parade and fireworks!
We spent time with good friends and ate lots of good food, so it was clearly a fabulous weekend.
