a week after my mom life, my sister and her family and our friends Jake and Jackie and their two kids came out to visit. Jake and Jackie had never been to Pittsburgh before, so we got the great privilege of showing them around the city. it was a great excuse for jerry and i to do it, as i can’t recall the last time we’ve had an adventure in the city.
the first day, the guys picked up peace love and little donuts for breakfast, we went to mt washington, rode the incline, walked around downtown, visited franktuary for lunch (best.hotdog.ever.). then we drove over to the strip district and walked around (i finally got to go into penn mac). picked up the pittsburgh pretzel cafe on the way home for dinner. after the kids went to bed, jerry, chris and jake went to spoonwood brewing company for some drinks and appetizers. i heard it was great.
the second day we went to frick park in the morning, came back to give the kids a nap, while the boys sat around the fire and smoked cigars while the girls talked and were probably on pinterest. then for dinner we went to burgatory. the men so kindly brought the kids home and put them to bed while chrissie, jackie and i did some shopping.
sunday we went to church, and then picked up the infamous primanti brothers for lunch. (yes, there was a lot of food that weekend.) and then they were off. it was such a great time and i can’t wait to do it again!
