A few weeks ago I drove out to Pittsburgh to help Adam move from his temporary housing into his more permanant apartment. I've never been to the 'Burgh as an adult, the closest I came was driving through on our way to my parents place back in May after my lab mate, Stephanie's, wedding. 

My week there was spent driving around the city, getting acquainted with things, visiting IKEA, eating Indian Food from a grocery store in the park. I was tempted to not go back to Massachusetts.

One of the first nights there, we ate at a local burger bar called Burgatory. They have a milkshake list to be envied. We chose the PB&J, well, I let Adam choose the PB&J. I would have been just as happy with the coffee & donuts, the salted nutella crunch, or the campfire s'mores ones. We also ordered a "create your own" burger each. Delicious.

While I was in Pittsburgh, I actually had a lot of work to do, so I holed myself up in the Carnegie Library for most of the week. I didn't realize that you could see the dinos at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History from the 2nd floor stacks, until one of my last days there. I didn't get to visit the museum, but seeing those dinos got me excited to go!

I also spent a day at the Phipps Conservatory, which I'll talk about in a separate post. I couldn't fit all the beauty in this one!

My last day before driving home, Adam and I headed out to Cleveland to visit my parents. That's one nice thing about living in Pittsburgh, I'll be able to visit with them more often. I rarely see them and it's been that way for the last 8 years, since I moved away from home. Anyway, we walked into the garage, which has become my grandpa's boat building room. How amazing is it that he put this thing together from scratch (with some help from my dad and my uncle Brian)? All those little pieces, even I would probably have a tough time!

I always love visiting with my parents, because I get to see my favorite kitty, Ollie. 

On my drive home, I stopped in Scranton, PA to visit with my great aunts. I haven't seen them in over a year and I wanted to stop by and spend some time with them. When I left their house, I saw a beautiful rainbow. What a great ending to a great trip!

  1. Sounds like a fun time. Lots of great photos, and the rainbow at the end tops it off nicely!
