All The Franklins In One Day

Doing something you have been wanting to do for a long time is always so thrilling, so satisfying. I have been wanting to walk around our neighborhood for so long—dreaming about the day I can just walk out of my house and find myself in the hustle and bustle of city life. I finally got the chance on Monday.


What’s more is that I had Sophia for a trusty companion. Together we explored Old City and walked straight up Race street toward Franklin Square stopping by a new coffee shop on our block that also happens to be a clothing boutique. Mmm… enjoying a coffee while browsing trendy pieces—what can be better?


Here is Sophia bundled up for the unexpectedly cool fall morning browsing the wares while I am waiting for my decaffeinated fix. Franklin Square was magical enchanting Sophia with its fountains and carousel though she didn’t want to ride it, just look at it go round and round.

Later in the evening and together with Evan we took a walk to Franklin Fountain—a much loved ice cream shop where we may have convinced Sophia that ice cream is not too cold.

    We took our boys to the Franklin Institute when they were little . After viewing the real locomotives, one boy disappeared. We found him sitting on the cow catcher of a locomotive saying “Moo-Moo”. That little boy is now an M.D. He has 3grandchildchildren.
