Easter, Art Shows, Horsey Rides, and Sports (lots of pictures)

So, over Easter weekend Trisha and I went to Pittsburgh to celebrate the wedding of Trisha's (and mine) good friend Mandy (the former) Hamilton.  Our hotel was beautiful and was right across the Allegheny River from PNC Park (the Pirates) and upriver from Heinz Field (the Steelers).  We went on a dinner cruise up the Allegheny and the Monongahela (the Mon) on Friday, the walked the city Saturday morning and early afternoon, finishing with a trip up the Mon Incline (a tram-type vehicle).  When the wedding reception ended, fireworks from the Pirates game went off just outside our window.  It was a cool time.  Plus, I got to see Trisha interact with four of her good friends from college who I had only met briefly before.  I enjoyed seeing her in this new light.

Over the next two weeks, the kids all had art fairs at their schools.  I can't believe I had a part in creating such creative kids.  They must be recessive genes.

The twins also went on a field trip where they got to ride on a horse.

Finally, tomorrow the girls have their first softball games and Griffin gets to play soccer game number 2 (last week we were thunderstormed out).
