On Monday we drove to Pittsburgh, stayed overnight, and drove back Tuesday evening. We did it because Brian had to use up a few vacation days before the end of the month.
We took a few pictures, but mostly video. Here are a few of our pics, and I will get a video together as soon as I can.
The first place we went was the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. It is about a 100 times better than the Children’s Museum of Cleveland. There’s actually no comparison. There’s three floors, the exhibits are so cool and interesting, and the kids had a ball!
This is the cafeteria. We ate lunch here before we went through the museum.
Silas on the big climby thing.
Brianna in a “smart car”.
Silas looking through some kind of telescope.
This was a fun slide, but before you go down the slide, you have to go through a room that is tilted at a 25 degree angle. It gives you the weirdest feeling in your head, because your brain is trying to adjust to it. I almost felt like fainting or something. I never thought it would affect me, but it did. But, as your brain adjusts, it doesn’t bother you anymore. Silas only went down the slide once, because he didn’t want to go through that tilted room because of the weird feeling, plus he fell when he was in it. I went down the slide twice with Brianna and once by myself.
Brianna playing with the giant Lite Brite.
Silas playing in the water area. I think the raincoat I picked for him was a little too big, cuz it was down to the floor, and he looked like a mad scientist running around.
Brianna loved playing with that dolphin water toy! She stood there and played with it the whole time we were at the water area, and when we had to leave, she started crying.
Brianna snoozing in the hotel room. She was pooped out from all the fun at the museum!

Bree ready for the pool! (there’s the frown again)

The next day we went to the Carnegie Science Center. Here’s Brian with the kids, with the Pittsburgh skyline in the background.
Silas in the sports area of the science center, doing the trampoline/bungee jump thing!
That’s it for now! We had a blast! We love Pittsburgh, and hope to go back again soon.
