Happy Constitution Day!

You probably didn't know yesterday was Constitution Day did you? We didn't either. More on that later.

First up, Philly chese steaks! The real kind. With Cheez Whiz.

Then we wandered around downtown and saw some interesting stuff. Not sure what to make of this...

But it seems like someone has a fake pet spotted leopard.

Yes, but do they sell BEER?

As interesting as this next picture is, no picture could really capture the enormous amount of random objects crammed into one large garden of artwork. If you can call it that.

The rest of the afternoon was spent reliving part of my history, part of national history, and part of the movie National Treasure.

We unwittingly took a tour of Independence Hall at 3:30PM - and found out while standing in the hall at 4:00PM that the Constitution signing had occurred 221 years ago at 4:00PM. Really kind of an overwhelming thought to be standing there at that time.

Nate had been reliving moments from the movie National Treasure all afternoon while Molly and I struggled to remember the scenes he was describing in vivid detail, so Nate got the movie and we decided it needed to be watched.

We didn't want to have to cram around a laptop, so I ended up in the back of the truck in the dark digging for our DVD player we use at events. It looked something like this:

After the movie and getting to see numerous scenes shot where we had just been in Philly (and in DC for that matter), I went for some night geocaching with Stephen.

We only went 1 for 3 on caches, but it was fun to wander around in a park in the dark.
