Some pictures

I left it to Jill, Brooke, and Amy to document the events of the past week and a half of partying in New York. Now that Trent and I are on our own, we need to step up and tell our own stories now...

We departed New York on Tuesday around Noon. We drove two hours south to Philadelphia where we checked into our hotel then quickly made our way to the world-famous South Philly cheesesteak establishments. Pat's and Geno's eateries lie on opposing corners of an intersection. They compete to create the best cheesesteak in town.

Here is a picture taken from Pat's looking back at Geno's. We first ate cheesesteaks at Geno's (along with cheese fries and a Coke). Then we walked across the street to try Pat's version. We later returned to Geno's (after the baseball game) for a one last cheesesteak before calling it a night.

Citizens Bank Park!
Nice Hats!

The rain began to fall late in the game. They delayed the game in the bottom of the 8th when lightning began to flash. Due to the heavy rains, we decided to leave. The Phillies beat the Rockies 7-4.

After spending all day in the truck, we finally arrived at GreatAmerican Ballpark in Cincinnati.

We promptly bought some bratwurst and found our seats to watch the Reds pound the Pirates 9-1.

We each came away with a small souvenir.

Thanks for stepping up and posted your trip. I love all these pictures. Thanks for taking care of Trent while your out. That hat picture is hilarious. I always new Trent had an unusually small head. Man, I can't believe how much you two eat. Hope you guys enjoy the last few days of your LONG road trip!

It looks like you guys are having so much fun! I think that is great that you are getting to make the best of what would normally be a boring road trip!

It looks like you guys are having alot of fun. I think it is amazing that you get to do that with one another. Maybe the girls should go on a road trip to hit all the Ross stores accross the US. Enjoy your time together.
