Trip Teaser 2

Sorry about the pictures not showing up in the previous post, let's just have ourselves a do-over.

I now realize that the title of this post makes me think of "strip teaser," which is not at ALL what I was intending. There was none of that on this trip. Unless you count the part where GH and I staggered back to our nice hotel in Arlington each night, tore off our sweaty, grubby clothes, and immediately passed out in separate queen beds.

 We had a great trip. Kimi and Jeff (GH's sister and her husband) hosted us in their charming, 100-year-old home in Pittsburgh. They took us around and showed us the city. Kimi cooked great meals and even went out beforehand and bought enough Frosted Flakes to keep GH blissfully happy and diabetes-prone. And, nicest of all, they kept the Tiny Dark Lord home with them while GH and I went to go run ourselves ragged in DC for a couple of days. TDL had a great time playing with his cousin Trey, whom he finds hilarious.

Now, the pictures!

Ha! I was going to make a strip teaser comment and then I made it to the second paragraph and realized you beat me to it. Drat.

Looks like an awesome trip! I particularly love your husband's geeky shirts. I see Battlestar Galactica, Green Lantern, Iron Man, and...Abbey Road? it looks like my husband's closet.

Heh, "strip teaser." You are so great. I love the pictures and love that you had a great trip. TDL is as darling as ever--I love the "coordinating cousins" photo.

(And! Do I notice something from the 21-Day Challenge? I love the graphic tee with the floral skirt. Go you.)

Awesome! Looks like a fantastic trip! And nothing beats having friends/family to stay with, and some free babysitting. FTW!
