Over the weekend we went to Pittsburgh to visit Kevin's friends Adam and Jess and see the fireworks down town and just have a good time. Jess is going for her master's there and she has an apartment kind of in the ghetto, but in a decent section of town. It was really fun because right now she doesn't have a room mate so we got our own room which was really nice. We had a lot of fun with Adam and Jess. We tried a bunch of new food places that Kevin and I had never eaten at before and we walked around the city a lot and did some small shopping, mostly just browsed. I loved seeing all the new sites, getting coffee at Starbucks, eating at a yummy pita shop, and watching the fireworks in the city. They were really beautiful and one night we saw the view of the city from on top of a hill/mountain and it was beautiful. We saw Transformers 2 which was a really good movie and we stopped at an toy store with all these old collectible toys. It was really cool! We watched Drop Dead Fred (I love that movie!) and we watched a bunch of old transformer episodes. We had a nice drive both ways through the tunnels and on the turnpike and on the way home we stopped at Kevin's sisters and ate with Her, Her husband, Her daughter Braylynne, Kevin's Mom, and Kevin's Dad. It was really nice and we had a great time there too. Although that was on Sunday we still had a great weekend and a wonderful fourth of July and we were really excited to get the opportunity to visit Kevin's friend in Pitt!
