Yikes! Our weekend was full on busy fun. 

My daughter and son in law are leaving sometime this morning and later on I am getting my second shingles shot. I am fully prepared for a horrible reaction and have nothing pressing on my schedule for three days. Wish me luck!

We had such a nice visit. On Saturday, we were at the strip district. We walked about and breezed in and out of shops. We also had lunch but had to wait an hour for our food - I'm assuming someone didn't show up for work or they have a shortage of workers just like every other business these days.

Yesterday we went to the Andy Warhol museum which I have never seen. We thoroughly enjoyed that experience. After the museum, we walked across the bridge to have a 'look see' up a street and then walked back over the same bridge to where the car was parked and drove home to the suburbs.

I had fun in the city but now I am ready to hibernated in the suburbs for an entire week. I enjoyed our visit with our family and am sad to see them leave. Hopefully plans will be made to see them soon.


We are heading into another heat wave, ugh!

How was your weekend?


  1. What a fun weekend! Our weather has been an unexpected delight for the past several days and I'm also not looking forward to a return to the heat (but it is summer)!

  2. The Strip is one of my favorite places in Pittsburgh! :) You had perfect weather!

  3. Sounds like fun. The murals are very cool.

    Good luck with your shingles shot. Steve had a mild reaction to his second. I didn't have any reaction at all other than a little sore spot where the needle was used.

  4. Sounds like you guys had a great time. I hope you have central A/C for this heat wave. That was the one huge requirement I had when we moved to Philly.....central A/C. Everyone thought I was crazy but guess who had lots of visitors in the middle of the hot humid summer.....ME!

  5. Love those murals. Our weather has been all over the place. We had to bring out our light jackets over the weekend.

  6. Oh The Strip! I have wonderful memories of going there with my Dad when I was young! Thank you for the memories. Stay cool, and have a cozy day!

  7. Your photos are wonderful. I love all the colorful buildings. How nice that you got to visit with your daughter and son in law. I wish you the best with the second shingles shot. I remember not feeling well for 2-3 days. Thinking of you.

  8. Sounds like you had a fantastic weekend. The murals are beautiful!

  9. oh, wow! such lovely photos! I love seeing bit shared from another country. The colours painted on the buildings are gorgeous. It sound like you had a fabulous time.

  10. Such beautiful murals! Hope the shot wasn't too bad for you.

  11. Love the wall murals, especially the last one. Stay cool.

  12. Sound like a very fun weekend with some very interesting places to visit. Good luck with your second shingles shot!

  13. Hi Karen,
    I do love a good museum...and this one looks awesome...very colourful for sure...and time spent with family just makes everything even better...
    ~Have a lovely day!

  14. Love the murals. It sounds like you have had a lovely family weekend. I hear you on needing to hibernate when you have spent time in a busy urban environment, I so need that too.

  15. What a nice weekend. Pittsburgh looks like an interesting city.
