The Art Museum in Philadelphia is impressive. It looks like a Greek Parthenon was placed at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Highway. The detail on the building is amazing!
The school that Todd teaches at hosted an exchange program with 10 girls from England. We took the British girls and their American hosts to a day trip in Philadelphia.
The view looking from the museum into Philadelphia is breath-taking. Especially during the fall months when the leaves are changing colors.
I had Todd take a picture of me with the Moose statue. For many years we called our youngest son "Moose" until he rebelled at 13 years old and told us he didn't like his nickname anymore. I still feel sentimental when I see a Moose.
For those who know the movie "Rocky", starring Sylvester Stalone. The movie is based upon the real life of boxer, Robert "Rocky" Balboa, A famous scene in the movie shows "Rocky" running up the Philadelphia Art Museum steps. The statue used to be at the top of the steps. It was moved a few years ago to the bottom when some stuffy, well-to-do folks said the statue was not "art".
We didn't have time to explore the museum (only to use the bathroom).
It was cold, but beautiful day to spend in Philadelphia.
