Greetings from Philadelphia

On Thursday we took Daniel, Adam, and Maddy to Philly, where we went to the Franklin Institute (stopping first for lunch at Au Bon Pain next to the garage where we parked, since the mobbed museum lot was full; we hadn't realized Rogue One was playing at their IMAX). We particularly wanted to see Jurassic World: The Exhibition, which was awesome, and we also went to Robot Revolution (great for kids, though our engineers were pretty familiar with everything on display) and many of the permanent exhibits on the brain, astronomy, electricity, trains, planes, etc. We stopped for dinner at the Maryland House and now we're watching Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation since the kids had not seen it. A few pics -- more tomorrow!
