the phillies game is still a bit up in the air. if i'm not 100% mobile by then i think we'll have to skip it. i just can't imagine traversing citizens bank park in a boot. i am going to do everything else, with or without the boot though. i'm really dorky because i'm super excited about the hotel in quakertown. okay, i love staying in hotels. LOVE IT. i wouldn't want to stay in one for any extended period of time but one night at the spring hill suites in quakertown? yes please! the room we booked is pretty great too. we got the studio, 2 queen, sofabed room. there are only 3 of us so we don't really need the sofabed but why not? it has a living/sitting room, windows that you can actually OPEN, a microwave and a mini-fridge. a few years ago we stayed at a hotel in houston with a microwave and mini-fridge and we spent probably $30 on frozen food from walgreen's and pigged the heck out when we got back to the room that night. it was so great!
i will end this post with a picture from new hope in 2007. we walked around the corner of a boutique and hello mannequin graveyard! so weird.
