Pittsburgh in December

Talia had a most incredible trip with her Yeye and Nainai to celebrate her 5th birthday, and the rest of the family decided to head over to Falling Water and Pittsburgh for a weekend getaway. I was a bit skeptical of the drive for an overnight trip, but it turns out that with only one (still rear-facing) child in the backseat things were remarkably quiet. Falling Water notoriously does not allow children on tours, but they do have a rather passable cafeteria and play area so we just took turns going into the house.

And in Pittsburg we were delighted to stumble upon the very first Lozziwurm installation in the United States just outside the Carnegie Museum of Art. Milo was a fan despite a few patches of slush and snow on the ground:

We also enjoyed the playground exhibit inside the Carnegie 2013, and then we were off to visit a local bookstore and of course explore the Cathedral of Learning at Pitt:

Add in a lovely brunch, some fabric shopping, pizza for dinner and a nice Indian restaurant on the way out of town and it was a very successful weekend.
