Pittsburgh in October

Chris and I made our second trip to Pittsburgh in roughly two months this past weekend.  We had a wonderful time.  Actually, we always have a wonderful time there.  Gotta be the company we keep there :)

We left NYC on an evening flight only to arrive moments before Pitt's loss to Syracuse.  Apparently that hasn't happened in YEARS so it was a very big deal.  Other than this bit of disappointment, the weekend was perfect!

We had a lazy Saturday morning, but made up for it with a busy afternoon.  We met up with one of my best friends from high school, Michelle, and her husband for lunch.  We ate some delicious pizza and then stopped in the bakery next door for yummy Halloween inspired treats!  So much fun!

Loved all the fall decor :)
Cute and yummy!!
After lunch, we headed over to the University of Pittsburgh for a mini-tour.  Chris showed me around the Cathedral of Learning.  It was a really neat place.  They have several cultural rooms with themes revolving around various countries.  We also checked out some of his former science classrooms.  We didn't have any classes that big at Georgetown College.  It was fun to hear him tell stories about his time in college at Pitt.

Switzerland Room - very cool!
After dinner at a fun Thai restaurant, we were off to bed early.  Sunday was Trey's Baptism.  Chris was chosen to be Godfather of this special little boy.  He was excited to have the honor.  Here are a few pics from the main event of the weekend :)

Godfather Chris and Trey - love it!
We spent some time watching football with the Fann family on Sunday afternoon.  It was a relaxing day.  We flew back to NYC on Monday.  The weekend was fantastic fun and such a blessing with wonderful friends.  I am already looking forward to our next trip to the dreaded black and yellow city!!  Hey - as a Bengals fan you couldn't possibly except me to TOTALLY embrace Pittsburgh, could ya? :)
