Let Freedom Ring

This is Matt and I had the chance to go to Philly, I had a day off from Dover. I went to the Independence National Historical Park, it was a lot of fun, if you get the chance to go you need to go, the city has great sidewalks.

If you go and want to see Independence Hall you'll have to get tickets (they are free) at the Independence Visitors Center. Get there early as thy only give out the tickets for that day and when they are gone they are gone.

It was so cool to go on the tours and the that lead the tours really knew their history so it was a lot of fun to learn even more about the early history of the great country that we live in.

I saw the Liberty Bell and had a Philly cheese steak for dinner... what a great day, so here are some pictures from that day.

I cant tell you how much I enjoyed this trip, every one should go and realize just how much of a blessing that this country got off the ground. The many sacrifices that the founding fathers gave. I think that we need to be reminded of this, it is fragile and must be protected.

I can't believe it's not butter

Matt and I fancy ourselves to have a great sense of humor. Well at least we love to laugh! Courtney likes her jokes on the dry side and corny side. Matt enjoys a little bit of everything, in moderation. But we both LOVE British comedy! Keeping Up Appearances, Are You Being Served, and The Vicar of Dibley, to name a few. This is one of our favorite skits from The Vicar!

We have tried to memorize it without success...But we are hopeful one day that we'll be able to run circles around friends and family with this bit. We wanted to share it with you, so you could know what makes us laugh and what keeps us laughing time and time again! Enjoy!
