Today was beauty salon and betting horses day at Libby’s.
We spent the day in Manhattan with Libby and Peter and their kids, and pop-pop.
We began by fighting traffic, then walking through Central Park marveling at the rats, going to the MoMA, getting real pizza, taking the subway, and then spending some time successfully escaping from Escape the Room. Lastly we went up to the top of the Empire State Building at night before going home. Peter had some discounted tickets for us, but actually redeeming them was a nightmare that had him running up and down the building just to try to find a place to print them since the images on the phone wasn’t good enough.
On our trip to New York we stopped in Chicago late at night to eat before heading to Pittsburgh early the next morning where we spent the day. After a night there we traveled to Fort Necessity since Liam had done his History Day project on the French and Indian War during the school year. After that, it was on to Commack, NY to see my family. This time, we didn’t break down.
First stop was in Wisconsin Dells for miniature golf.
Here we are in downtown Chicago, but only walking around while we wait for our table.
We then drove through the night until we got to Pittsburgh. Early breakfast, then long walks through town until dinner at the hotel where we ate our pierogies that we picked up at Forgotten Taste Pierogies while out.
After a night at the hotel which included lots of swimming in the indoor pool, we left Pittsburgh and drove to Fort Necessity.
