Too many one ways

The kids and I dropped Matt at work. The plan was to head to the zoo, but it was raining so decided to go to downtown Philadelphia to go to the Children's museum.

I found the museum with little trouble, but finding a parking place was MUCH harder. Our rental for this week is a Chevy Trailblazer, which is a very nice vehicle, but oh boy trying to parallel park on a busy street..NOT FUN.

Took about 40 minutes to find a parking garage ($9.00 for parking...YIKES) then walked to the museum.

The kids had fun and the rain had let up so we decided to head to the zoo. I think I have now went up and down everystreet in Philadelphia. Luckily the kids were great while I was lost for an hour. Someone would say take a left well that would be a one way to the right only. We finally found our way, after seeing lots of sites such as china town and more.

Luckily we finally made it back to the hotel and hopefully I will be staying away from one way streets for the rest of this trip.
