900 miles in 3 days

Woo! What a whirlwind of a weekend!
Nephew's 1st birthday was last week, so Sunday he had a party. We really wanted to go, to see him and all the other family, so Friday night we started our 900-mile road trip.

We left at Gwen's bedtime and did our first leg, out to Monroeville, where we crashed for the night (arriving just before midnight). Gwen made herself at home:

Saturday morning we got up, got ready, threw everything back into the car, and headed into Pittsburgh. First stop, breakfast at Primanti Brothers!

It was delish. After that we headed to the incline...

for some great views of the Pittsburgh skyline. Gwen loved the ride up and down.

After that we were going to go to the Andy Warhole museum, but because of a walk/race in the city, all of the downtown bridges were closed! After driving around for about 15 minutes, getting no closer to the museum, we gave up and headed off to Ohio.

After a week of rain and gloom here in Philly (and apparently in Ohio too), we had some warm beautiful weather over the weekend!

It was nice to have most of the day on Saturday to just relax and catch up. Gwen had fun playing with her cousin and getting lots of hugs and kisses from her Nana and Pop-Pop, and Trav and I had fun catching up with his brother and sister-in-law.

Sunday was Wyatt's party:

There were a good number of guests, all had kids, so there was lots of activity going on.

We spent the night again on Sunday, before driving home on Monday. We headed to the Pittsburgh area first (about 2 hours) at the same time as Trav's parents to have lunch with Trav's older brother, then we were on our way home. Trav drove for an hour-ish before the weekend caught up with him and he felt too tired, so I took over for the last 3.5 hours. Besides that one stop, we just drove. Gwen did amazingly well! We weren't sure how she would do, and planned to stop as often as needed, but we really didn't need to. She only really fussed right before she fell asleep, and a bit at the end when we were caught in some Monday evening traffic (and she was ready for dinner).

We are all a bit tired today, but it was a great trip. I'm in the office today because we have an event, and I'm going to desperately miss my work from home Tuesday this week. At least its a short week!
