A Visit To Eastern State Penitentiary - REVIEW

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

I attended optometry school in Philadelphia. Whenever my husband and I would hang out in Center City, we would drive by this big old building. I knew it was an old penitentiary, but I never got a chance to actually visit it when I lived in Philadelphia.

A couple weeks ago, my husband and I had the opportunity to take a quick weekend trip without our kids. We thought it would be fun to go back up to Philadelphia and do all the touristy things we didn't get a chance to do when I lived up there.

Each month, my kids look forward to receiving books from the Parragon Book Buddies program. They love to read or have books read to them. And Parragon publishes so many great family favorites. Usually, the books are centered around a particular theme. January's theme was focused on Disney Princesses.

Once my son saw the books were mostly Disney Princess books, though, he got disappointed and left the room. On the other hand, my daughter was happy. She loves Disney Princesses!
