Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball Game

A couple weeks ago we took a trip to Pittsburgh to see Robert's cousin Jeremy and his family, and to check off another baseball stadium as part of Robert's goal to visit every MLB baseball stadium and collect a souvenir ice cream baseball cap from each of them. Ironically though, after we had gotten home a few days later we could not find our Pirates cap. I think we left it in the hotel in Toronto.

This was also Micah's first baseball game ever. Julia and Eli enjoyed running around the benches, Micah mostly slept. Eli was actually very into the game for most of game watching the players hit the ball etc., while Julia was pretty oblivious to what was going on. She spent the first half of the game playing with her toy frog and getting ice cream with Dad. 
And Robert got to see Conner for the first time, and I hadn't seen him since he was a little baby. Conner and Micah share birthdays, they are exactly one year apart.

 Our seats were out in left field so Julia, Robert, and Eli stood by the fence and asked the players for baseballs (they didn't get anything).

                                               
 
Afterwards we rode the escalators up to the top deck and took pictures with the city behind us. I like the first picture of Julia and I best, but the bottom picture actually shows Micah and I figure we need to have a picture where we can actually see him at his first baseball game.
Pittsburgh was cool with all it's bridges and hills and very picturesque. It has crazy streets though. After the baseball game we were going to Jeremy and Sarah's house when we took a wrong turn (even with our GPS guiding us) and ended up crossing back over the river we had just crossed and right into traffic. We went from an estimated arrival time in four minutes to twenty-five minutes with that one wrong turn. And then we had put in the wrong address in the GPS anyway so it took us another 20 minutes to get from the wrong address over to Jeremy and Sarah's. We really did get to see a lot of Pittsburgh even though we were only there a short time.
