We took our annual Christmas trek into downtown Pittsburgh to enjoy the holiday decorations. We always enjoy the PPG Place Wintergarden, with Santas and customs from around the world as well as the gingerbread houses designed and built by many local schools, businesses, and organizations. Above, the kids' favorite gingerbread creation was Heinz field.
I couldn't resist taking Alec's picture with the Heinz ketchup dinosaur, since he's my ketchup kid!
Then we did something new to our family and visited the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning. The Nationality Rooms are a must-see, especially during the Holiday season.
We thoroughly enjoyed our family day in Pittsburgh this year and even experienced some new sights. Happy New Year to you and your family!
