Weekend Adventure

Tom and I headed to Pittsburgh last Friday . . . to visit Erin and have a little adventure.

Erin and Keith moved into a nice, spacious apartment since our last visit, so it was fun to see their new place.  AND . . . meet their kitten, Dash.

Dash is adorable -- a tiny, mini-panther with tons of energy and fearless athletic abilities!

We ate a lot.

We went on some very cool field trips.  Here is Erin, showing us around the Humanities building at Carnegie Mellon -- where she will (again) be a graduate student in the fall.

We also visited the Phipps Conservatory, a pinball emporium/coffee shop, and a micro-brewery/pub.  (Each place has a story to tell, so watch this space next week.)

Pittsburgh is a great city -- and a fun place to visit.  Especially when you have your own trusty tour guides!  (Also really cool bridges -- that turn color at night.)

Mostly, though, it was great to spend time with Erin and Keith.  Lots of fun; lots of laughs; lots of love!

A perfect weekend adventure!

(Bonus surprise:  Pittsburgh is a few weeks ahead of us, spring-wise.  The dogwood trees are in full bloom everywhere!)

Looks like a great time away. There's nothing like visiting your kids! I should blog about my trip to NC...there's an idea! :-)

Pittsburgh is the best. Be sure to check out the Frick Mansion sometime. It's across from a beautiful historic cemetery, and also near a wonderful noodle place!

Glad you had a wonderful time.
