Visiting Pittsburgh

Since I already posted the photo of the pigeon (why don't we ever see baby pigeons?), I thought I'd add a little from the rest of the trip to Pittsburgh.

We got into the city a little early, so we drove by Heinz Field, home of the mighty Pittsburgh Steelers! Yes, the six-time Superbowl champions. :) We made the trip to see Trevor's ear specialist. He has to go there a couple times a year, sometimes more, because he has horrible problems with his ears. He's had over a dozen surgeries on them. Our next trip there will be in mid-July, if anyone wants to swap a pin, charm or postcard from Pittsburgh for ones from your area, just let me know. I'll be happy to pick it up for you.

There is a green dinosaur in the lobby at Allegheny General Hospital, so we always stop by to say hello. After all the times we've gone there, he seems like an old friend.

Then we went to the waterfront to walk around and have lunch. Trevor's never been to a Hard Rock Cafe, so we decided to go there to eat. Randy and I have been to ones in three States as well as in Canada. I love their pins, so I added several new ones to my collection on my Hard Rock Cafe denim jacket and discovered they also sell bracelet charms! Another of my addictions, I must confess, so I added it to my Hard Rock Cafe bracelet. :)

From there, we went home through Monroeville and had to stop at the mall. Yes, there happens to be a Hot Topic there! Imagine that. :-) I got a pair of pretty purple pants. As everyone who reads here regularly knows, that is my absolute favorite store and I buy most of my clothes and jewelry from there. Too bad they weren't around when I was a teenager. I would have been in Heaven! Now I have to relive my youth there. My daughter loves it when I go there because that means there are new clothes for her to borrow. All her friends say I'm the coolest mom because of my clothes. Not so sure about that, but I do like vivid colors. :)

Hi Gretchen! Your right about baby pigeons. I don't think anyone has seen one.
Sounds like you had a good time in Pittsburgh.
Everyone needs a favorite store.
