Yesterday we went to visit our family in Pittsburgh. We almost always go on the day after Christmas, because it’s the one time of the year that almost everyone, adults and kids, are at home. It was a lovely visit, and it was nice to catch up with the cousins, who are almost all adults now and living interesting lives all around the country. We also had a chance to talk to my grandma and my grandpa (who is 91 years old!), show them some pictures and tell a few stories over a Pittsburgh beer. We had to leave early because we had to drive back to Ohio, but the trip was really nice for all of us, and I was glad to see the Pittsburgh crew before heading back to Europe.
