Weekend Sight-seeing

We have just had a really good weekend looking around Philly. Yesterday was quite a cruisy day as Emma was very tired. We did manage to go to Chestnut Hill (beautiful area with amazing history & houses) for afternoon tea and spent a couple of hours driving around rubbernecking! Today we went to Philadelphia Zoo, which was the first American Zoo. The weather was really warm, one of the warmest days since being over on the East - no need for hats, scarves or gloves today!

We are packing up our bags tonight and getting ready to drive the two hours up to New York city tomorrow morning where we will be staying two nights. On Wednesday morning we will fly out of JFK Airport to San Francisco and stay there for two nights before flying home late Friday night. We will be arriving in Auckland early Easter Sunday.
