Yesterday we had a BBQ in honor of mom’s birthday at my sister Margaret & hubby Frank’s house. Here’s mom with 5 of her 12 grandchildren. (In the background is my brother Ray)
Continuing our July 4th tradition, my friends Simon and Kati Curtis came down from Manhattan to spend the weekend with us and enjoy some fireworks (I’ve mentioned before that it was Simon who coined the PhillyChitChat name July 4, 2007. Hence the blogs birthday is 7/7/07). This year we’re going to go to Camden to check out the Two Cities, Two States fireworks. Then today (Sunday), we are going to Franklin Square Park to get our photos taken by the “Picture Yourself In Philly” Photographer and check out the Civil War Exhibit.
One of the best views of Philly is from Camden. We were running late and missed the sunset, but I recommend you come over and see it from here.
The fireworks were pretty spectacular too.
and drew a nice crowd. (The above three shots by Simon Curtis)
