Bocce Bowl

Today, instead of partaking in the hooplah surrounding the Super Duper Bowl the Lime family took a day trip to Philadelphia.  It was a bit of a whirlwind.  We went to the Art Museum in the morning, headed to South Philly for cheesesteaks at the revered Pat's, moved back up north to see the Edgar Allan Poe National Historic Site (ok, maybe we were subconsciously thinking of the Ravens), then ended our day visiting the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.

Returning home, we got lost in Norristown after we got off the highway looking for gas and eats.  We passed not one but TWO bocce clubs.  We were all amused by the Holy Savior Bocce Club.  What do an avian harbinger of doom and a dirty old prospector have to hold against the Son of God?

Pictures were taken.  They shall be share after I get a good night's sleep and get through a day of work even though I am feeling like I am getting sick....again.

Certainly a more interesting day than ours- or even the superduper bowl, not my "thing".

On the other hand, one day closer to spring training, and Baseball!!

Watched the game, glad the Ravens won but it was really no big deal to me.

We were home in time to watch the game, but we attended my seven-year-old nephew's birthday party prior to that. I expect both of us to start pouring snot from our noses at any moment.

I can not fathom what would happen if I suggested taking a little day trip instead of watching the Super Bowl. Then again, I think I would be mighty disappointed to miss the game too. ;)

Glad y'all had a good time!

they don't play bocce the way we played bocci...overhand between 10 neighboring yards. Now THAT takes some skill..
