The final full day of our trip we spend in Pittsburgh. We decided to take the kids to the Carnegie Natural History Museum to see the dinosaur fossils. We weren't quite sure how it was going to go because the kids are kind of leery of large creatures at times. They loved it! One of the things the museum has is an area where the kids can "dig" for bones and fossils themselves. The kids had such a good time that there was a bit of a meltdown when we told them it was time to continue on.

After the museum we took the kids to the Duquesne Incline. It's kind of a family tradition to stop there and ride it whenever we're in town. We also took a ride past an old family house in McKees Rocks to show the kids where my Grandma lived a long time ago. By the time we got back to the hotel all we wanted to do was take a dip in the pool and go to bed.

We got home Saturday evening completely exhausted but happy we had such a great trip. Yesterday was Grandpa Huddas's birthday so Happy 62nd Birthday Grandpa!
