4th of July Weekend in Pittsburgh

Our holiday weekend was one big party after another....

On Friday, the 4th, we got to visit with Don, Audrey, Connor, Dylan & Corinne before heading out with Grandma and Papa to Kennywood Amusement Park. I have never been to Kennywood and can't believe that this was my first time at the park. It was a lot of fun! Luckily, the weather was cooler than NC and we only had light rain during the day. Rides, food and fun ended with fireworks and one terrific holiday...

On Saturday, we visited "Great Regan Grandma"... (that's what Regan calls Doug's Grandma... Too cute.) Regan was very excited to visit her. The kids showered her with gentle hugs and love...

Later, we went to the Aviary where the kids chased and fed birds. Our visit ended with a bird show but our fun-filled day didn't end there... Oh no... We went home and got ready for a cookout with Aunt Joan and Aunt Mary.

When they arrived, Aidan showed Joan and Mary how to play the Wii. After Aunt Joan figured out where the 'A' and 'B' buttons were, she did quite well for her first time! She's quite the bowler! =)

After dinner, Doug and I left everyone to celebrate our 14 year anniversary... (Yes... 14 years! It's hard to believe!) We went down to Station Square and had a great time dancing the night away at the Matrix...

The next day, we heard that the kids also stayed up late catching lightening bugs and playing with sparklers...

Here are some pics from our trip...

What a wonderful Independence Day.
You look like you had a great time. Great Regan Grandma looks like she is alert and delighted.
The only thing better would be if I were in your side pocket.
love, MOM and Day
