It seemed a little gluttunous, though I can most definitely be a glutton, to go all the way to Philadelphia just for ice cream, so we visited the art museum as well.
|I was lucky enough to have a nice Jitterbuggin blouse and skirt to wear to the museum. They make really lovely and comfortable clothes.|
I was happy to see that the museum had a few paintings with dogs in them. I love looking at old pictures and paintings of dogs and seeing the role they played in society at that time.
|My favorite is the bottom one, I love how the ladies dog is inviting her to play as she heads out the door.|
The museum also had a very nice collection of Medieval armor and art.
In my opinion though the best part of the museum was outside it. In a garden across the street from the entrance was a sweet statue commemorating a Mastiff who had served as a guard dog for the museum. I couldn't resist taking a picture with him. I love the sweet expression on his face.
|I got a lot of nice compliments on my 1940s coconut purse. Its definitely one of my favorite accesories.|
|These sodas are not like ones from a store. The lime soda was really tart and fizzy delicious. I've never even liked soda until I had it from a fountain.|
The sundae I got, the Southern Sympathizer, was definitely one of the best things I've ever eaten.
My husband and I even managed to get one picture of us together, a rarity, before heading back to Jersey City on the train.
