I have no idea why, but I had a flashback to one of my favorite field trip locations: the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Honestly, it's still one of my most favorite places on earth. Going there as a kid was an amazing experience.
There are three main things that I remembered in my flashback:
Number one: The special field trip lunch.
My mom would wake up earlier than usual to run to Wawa and pick up my lunch. You see, this lunch was not like my everyday packed lunch. This lunch was a special order. My order was as follows: one Shorti sized Italian hoagie, one small bag of original Lay's chips, one pack of Tastykake powdered sugar mini donuts, and one bottle of Wawa's fruit punch. The lunch of champions.
And how did I tell my lunch apart from everyone else's lunch you ask? My lunch was carefully packed into a Wawa plastic bag that had my name beautifully written on a Post-it that was stapled to the bag in the very front. Every single time. Thanks mom. *awkwardly winks at my mom*
Number two: The Franklin Institute Sci-Store.
The Sci Store is only one of the BEST museum gift shops in Philadelphia. I will always stand by this statement.
And the last and greatest part of my flashback: The IMAX Theater.
The funniest part is that I wouldn't be excited for the movie, I would be excited for the short before the movie. Could you imagine my excitement when I found it on YouTube? Check it out below. Ah, the memories.
