February in Philadelphia

It was incredibly cold but that didn't stop us from having a fabulous weekend of fun with Suzanne & Bill!

We saw the indescribably impressive Barnes Collection (conservatively estimated at SIX BILLION DOLLARS!?!?), ate and drank incredibly well, and walked throughout beautiful Center City Philadelphia.

We visited some of Bill's old haunts around Camac Street, including the beautiful new Kimmel Center, the performing arts center several blocks from where he used to live. It houses multiple theaters under a glass dome. We didn't get to see a performance but the architecture itself was fantastic!

Detail outside the Barnes Collection (no cameras allowed inside... imagine hundreds of Cezannes, Matisses, Soutines, Picassos, and an occasional Miro)
