Second day of vaca ~ Pittsburgh, PA


At LaRosa's this morning with our dear friends before getting on the road to make the four hour trip to Pittsburgh. It was sad to say goodbye...they were marvelous hosts and we had a great time but the vaca must go on...
Next stop was Carson St., the street my husband grew up on...in East McKeesport, PA. We went back to his old house, (even talked to the people who live there now!)... went as well to his high school, former church, sports fields, and a bunch of other places.

Had dinner at one of our fav places ~ Primanti Brothers. The sandwiches are amazing, and...gigantic. Here's half of mine. Note that I didn't even end up eating half of it, it was just too overwhelming, but what I did eat was amazing. Larry insisted on taking a photo of me as I began to dig into this...

I just enjoyed taking photos of scenery and bridges as we drove around. I love Pittsburgh...always have, always will!

This firetruck with a flag on it was right in front of us as we were driving and I pulled my camera out and snapped the photo because I liked it.

We went to PNC Park, Heinz Field, and the Incline as well. Then I came back to sit in the jacuzzi for a while at the hotel while the kids got in the pool, and watched some highlights from the MJ memorial. Couldn't see the whole thing there although Mike twittered highlights to me. (Thanks Mikey) I have the entire thing Tivo'd at home and will watch upon my return.
