Trip to the PPG Ice Rink

Pittsburgh has a lot of fun things to do, especially during the holidays. We took our kids last week to the PPG (Pittsburgh Plate Glass) Ice Rink in downtown Pittsburgh. The Ice Rink is outdoor and is encircled by beautiful glass buildings. The rink itself has a huge Christmas tree in the middle, and the lights and glass made everything sparkle. It was quite beautiful and I was envious that Joseph and I weren't there on a date, not that I could have skated anyway. Kiah and Malea ice skated with their daddy. Malea was a little young and was done after 5 or 6 times around. But, Kiah loved it and asked if we could go again the next night (but, it wasn't exactly free - so this will have to be a once a year activity). She thought she was hot stuff and doing so great at "learning how to skate." Joseph didn't burst her bubble and tell her she wasn't doing a thing - he was holding and pushing her around the entire time. After the kids skated we walked next door to the Winter Garden and enjoyed a display of gingerbread houses, and Santa's from all over the world. We will definitely make this a tradition and do it again next year. Anyone is free to join us!!!

Hi Lisa: This is Sister Rhodes. Your mom gave me your blogspot in a Christmas letter. Your family is so darling! I can't wait to see those twins! You are really going to have your hands full now.
