{Betsy Ross House:  our favorite stop.  The girls had her story memorized after reading a pile of library books about her before the trip.  Those moments of preparation before these trips make them absolutely incredible.  [amazon_link id="0736862013" target="_blank" ]This book [/amazon_link]is our most favorite.}
