Jtown fun!

Yesterday was the last day that my Sis and her fam were here visiting. We went to the Pittsburgh zoo and then headed home for some fun in J-town. I forgot the camera for the zoo but we stopped and picked it up and then we went on the Incline plane. It's supposed to be the steepest one around.
Now I'm a bit scared of heights so I stayed to the back of the car/trolly thing. Not really sure what it's called. But at the top is an outlook. I also stayed far back on that. But here's a pix of the town from where I stood on the outlook.
it's very pretty! I took a pix of the info they had on the incline. It's like a diagram of all the height and stuff. That's my sister Jessica and her DH sitting in front of it. At the top they have a restaurant and a gift/souvenir shop. Inside they had this foot massage thingy. For only 10 cents you can stand on it and get a great foot massage. LOL bubba decided to try it... it was SOOO loud. I was cracking up it was hilarious! Also up there is a huge flag and a park with a baseball field and a playground. The flag is 30 feet by 60 feet and the pole is 125 Ft high. It's supposed to be one of the largest free flying flags in the US. It's awesome you can see it from almost anywhere in the city. I couldn't really get all of it into my pix. By that time it was raining pretty bad but it was so warm so we had the kids running all over to tire them out.
it's been a pretty crazy week, all fun though! I loved visiting with my sis and BIL I wish we were closer to each other so that we could have our kids grow up together. the girls are 5 months apart. it was funny seeing them run like that. I just had to take some pix. But blogger isn't letting me upload it here sooo you'll just have to take my word for it.
it was all very fun! We plan on doing it again! The girls really seemed to like it.

So that's where you have been hiding. At least the girls look nice and happy playing on their swingset. I cannot believe how big they are getting, time goes so fast. Hope to hear more about your knitting and crocheting too.
