Day 1: 10.5 hours in the car with a 9 and a 10 year old boy. We survived. Enough said. Met up with some family for dinner; caught up and regrouped and had a really good night sleep.
The Pittsburgh Science Museum
We hung around for awhile...
We practiced weightless maneuvers...
I discovered I actually weigh just the right amount....I simply live on the wrong planet.
We aren't related.
A MAJOR (MAJOR!!!) highlight. (Space shuttle potty.)
The sports center:
The only kid in line to get two out of the four balls in the strike range. An agent was waiting to sign him up. (you would have thought so....he was PUMPED!)
We really made up for those 10 car riding hours yesterday.
I was the only one taking pictures in the bathroom.
The Duquesne Incline, opened in May 1877.
Isn't Pittsburgh a beautiful city?
Ended our day visiting this 350 pound hunk of a chocolate babe...and a dish of ice cream so big even the boys had a hard time finishing theirs.
a little trip down memory lane!
the boys were totally bummed that we couldn't get in to my 'haunted' dorm. JayBob was convinced he saw lights flashing and curtains moving, so he was actually OK with the visit.
On to Gettysburg:
Our ride-in-the-car tour guide did a great job....tried his best to engage the boys...
one encounter with a displaced Union soldier...
but it was a r-e-a-l-l-y long day.
We do know who fought, who won, and that we didn't want to be a drummer boy in 1863.
See you tomorrow!
