Brandon was so excited to show me all the things from his mission. He was like a little boy. It was cute!
While Brandon was on his mission, he did service on the USS Olympia and USS Becuna. Brandon even ran into the guy that he used to work with. Brandon and I were able to go on our own private tour. Their was this older gentlemen on the Becuna who told us many interesting facts about serving on a submarine.
We even met up with some old friends from Memphis for lunch!
We loved going to the Reading Market! It is amazing!
Of course we ate a lot of cheese steaks! We tried three different places! YUM!
We saw a fun musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. It was one of my favorite parts of the trip.
Our hotel was supper close to the new Philadelphia LDS temple. We could see the lights from the roof of our hotel.
There is so much history in the city of Philadelphia.
We went up to the top of Penn Tower and we were able to see the city at such a great view!
I really enjoyed listening to the audio tour of downtown Philidelphia!
Another highlight was the Phillies game! We had a great time watch the baseball game. Brandon's favorite of the night was the firework show.
We found some pretty fountains.
We climbed the infamous Rocky steps and found the Rocky statue.
We also saw Christs Church in Philadelphia. Many of the signers of both the Declaration and Constitution worshiped here. It was beautiful.
Brandon loved showing me his old mission sites. Here are pictures of his first apartment on his mission. We even stopped and had lunch at a pizza parlor where he would stop and eat on his mission.
