Vacation-Back to the "Burgh"
It may seem we did nothing but travel this summer, and honestly, we felt that way also! But THIS vacation (which happened in August and I am just now posting) was our REAL vacation. The other trips were with Mark working.
Makenna was born in Pittsburgh, Pa. We moved out there for Marks job, back in 1996. At the time, it was SO hard to go. But it proved to be the best thing for his career and it was good for us too. We had not returned since we moved back, and Makenna was curious about the city. We decided to combine a weekend there with a week in Hershey & Lancaster. It was so strange being back! So much has changed, and so many flashbacks while there. We lived in a suburb called Cranberry Township.
Our first night we ate at Primanti Brothers, which is a Pittsburgh specialty. They serve sandwiches with french fries and cole slaw ON the sandwich. It really is delicious! We also took a trip to the Creamery, which we visited WAY to often when we lived there. (I was prego!) It was not nearly as good as we remembered, but I think that is because now we are spoiled by Cold Stone Creamery. Back then they did not have that! Cheap though, which is nice.
