Our kids are busy trying to figure out what sugarplums are, so they can see if they do dance in their heads. (We don’t know, so it’s up to them to figure it out.) Because of that, it’s up to us to tell about our adventure in Center City Philadelphia last week. It’s taking us a little longer to tell about it, because Daddy gave Mommy and us a Christmas present early—a new computer.
We’ve been playin…we mean working on it ever since, unless Mommy butts in. But, since it’s a newer Window version (Windows 7, not 8, because we don’t want to have to clean the screen so often), we also had to learn how to do things like down load pictures and videos.
So let’s talk about our trip uptown.
We took the bus up to the Comcast Building to see their cool big wall video.
We arrived early enough to go with Daddy into the Godiva Chocolate store. We can’t tell what we bought, because it’s not Christmas yet, but what we didn’t buy, we ate. We seemed to have surprised the sales people, but that’s what we do. They called the manager, so he could tell them that’s what we do. It’s always good PR to let cute little teddy bears eat all the profit when we visit, because we’re good at telling people about good food. Godiva Chocolate is good food!!!
It takes place on a large wall in one of Philadelphia’s three tall skyscrapers—the Comcast Building, but it’s not just the huge video, the lobby is great too. Above the entrance, inside, are large steel bars going up several stories. On the bars are statues of people walking up the ramps. At first the look real, including the statue you’ll see in the video. What you won’t see is his son that he’s holding hands with. We spent some of our time trying to talk to the boy, but he wouldn’t talk. (That’s when Mommy told us he’s a statue. Oops.)
The video is so good, we forgave the guy who tossed a teddy in it. Now you know how good it is. (And, yeah, Mommy has dark brown hair, like we’re not teddy bears.)
Here’s the video—
After the movie, we walked over to the Christmas Village in Love Park.
We can’t find the pictures, but we really went. They had bratwurst. And, when we were done, they didn’t. Bratwurst! German hotdogs! Yummy!
Mommy and Daddy wanted to take us to see green Santa Claus at the Reading Terminal, but we didn’t feel so good. They say it might have something to do with eating all the bratwurst, but that can’t be it. Besides, we live with Santa and Sandy Paws, so who needs Santa Claus? So, we talked them into taking a taxi home.
A taxi! We usually go by bus or subway, so a taxi was cool too. We were a bit disappointed though. You know how city cab drivers drive really fast? That’s what we wanted. Didn’t happen. Our taxi driver was too busy texting while driving, and you can’t do that fast, evidently. Phil started crawling under the front seat to put the pedal to the medal, but Mommy stopped him. She’s no fun sometimes, but it’s Christmas Eve, so we’re not dumb enough to say that out loud.
So, it’s Christmas Eve. So that means time to tell ya, Merry Christmas from the Teddy Bear family to your family. (Is Santa ready yet?)
