ROOM WITH A VIEW

Here are some photos from our trip. 

 The restaurant at the Marriott in Springfield, OH had a
wine bottle doggie bag which I thought was so cute! 

 Cemetery in Springfield, OH
We found stones from the Civil War and World War I


We even passed by a Frank Lloyd Wright home but 
didn't have time to stop or take a photo. 
He is a favorite of mine! 

 View from our hotel balcony in Springfield, OH

 Pittsburgh, PA
 View area Adam took us to.....cloudy day :(

That's where the view area was, I loved the church.
Three yellow bridges.....

Heinz Field - Home of the Pittsburgh Steelers

We didn't visit but could be seen from the park. 



 Mirror Building downtown Pittsburgh

Tristen's Office with a view! 
Campus - University of Pittsburgh
She also has her research department in this
building which is under construction right now. 

University of Pittsburgh 
This building was beautiful to walk through.
We even took an elevator to the top for a view.

View through glass.....

Our ancestor's came from Czechoslovakia!



 We had Tristen teach us.....

I guess she is going to be a professor there!? Gosh what a prestigious university that is. They don't make buildings like that any more - or in California. I see the weather is getting ready for winter - lol - that will be a surprise for them don't you think? Oh you really had a wonderful time! :)

It looks like you had such a good time and saw so much! Pittsburgh is someplace where I discover something new every time I visit. (Similar to Chicago, I know you can relate!) If you get the opportunity to go again, do ride the Incline!The view of the city from the top is incredible!

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who enjoys visiting cemeteries! I find them fascinating - all the *stories* behind the people. And oddly enough, I find them a very peaceful and hopeful place. Somehow I am always reminded when visiting them that this world is not my home...

GOD BLESS!

I've toured a couple of Frank Lloyd Wright homes - he had quite an aesthetic.

Looks like a fun trip!

I didn't even know doggie wine bags existed. Loved seeing the eager students with Tristen teaching you all.
