A NJ baby takes his first trip to Philly and his reaction is priceless
One of the nice things always said about living in New Jersey is when you want to do something in a big city, you have NYC and Philadelphia right in your backyard. It's one of those "wouldn't want to live there, but" things. I mentioned last week that I was planning a surprise for my wife Aubree and the surprise was a short getaway for the weekend to Philly.
Everything you do with a 10 month old baby is subject to change and chaos, but he couldn't have been better behaved. He seemed to 'get' that something special was happening. We stayed at a hotel, went to the Franklin Institute, Philadelphia Museum of Art, had dinner at Morimoto which is a high end sushi restaurant, and generally just had a blast.
She had no idea where she was going until the night before and I was so unsure of throwing this at her as a surprise we took calls last week on 'surprises gone bad'. The funniest one was a guy who's girlfriend was being thrown a birthday party by all her girlfriend's at someone's house so he thought it would be cute to send over a male stripper. It blew up in his face when it turns out the male stripper he hired was his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend who had turned into a stalker and she had a restraining order against. No such drama on our weekend! Check out the pics of our getaway.
