A couple of weekends ago, we set out on a day trip to Pittsburgh. We have never been there and it is such a great city! I would have loved to explored it more, but we crammed a lot in our day there and took a tour so that we got the layout of the city and hit the highlights. I always love taking tours of new cities so that we don't miss anything important!
Our little Ezzers got sick on the ride up and we had to whip in to an REI and grab him something quickly before the tour started. The kids selection was terrible and they had exactly one shirt and one pair of pants that would fit that baby. We grabbed them and threw them on him, bless his heart.
We had such an interesting tour guide. We were sitting on a bench waiting to board the bus and he came up to Husby and I and started telling us all the Jewish spots to hit up. Confused, we thanked him for the info, and he said, "Gentiles like myself are happy to help!"
Okay .... ?
I guess there's a first time for everything, but never in my life have I been mistaken for a Jew. Haha!
The tour was great. The weather was beautiful - the warmest I think it has been since we moved here and we had a great time. The highlight of the trip for the boys was the Duquesne Incline.
Two little box cars take a ride up the steep Mt. Washington. So much fun!
Once at the top, the views of the city are spectacular!! Seriously, such a gorgeous town!
After our several hour tour, we headed down to the Strip to check out all the fantastic street food we saw when we drove through there on the bus. There were so many treats Levi and I spotted that we wanted to go back and grab, but ... we got there too late and everything was packed up and gone! So, we headed to Primanti Bro's for supper. Mmmm!
Every sandwich is topped with coleslaw and french fries and it's pretty ridiculous. Ridiculously awesome, that is!
And you guys didn't think I would go to Pittsburgh without scouting out the ALDC, did you???
Sadly enough, they were closed, or else I totally would have gone in. There was a car in the parking lot though and I am convinced Abby Lee was in there. I was petrified she was going to come out and yell at me when I was freaking out in the parking lot and taking pictures left and right.
We ended our day with the best little bakery I have ever been to, and loaded up on so many sweets. It was delicious! I would make a trip back to Pitts simply to go back to this bakery. Haha!
It was a fun day with my fun people, exploring new territory. Love it!
