Watching the River AND the Ball Game @ PNC Park

Drove back from Columbus to Pittsburgh with the youngest three grandchildren for a vacation at Grandma’s House.

We went downtown toPNC Park to see  the Pirates game. It was Pittsburgh Public Schools Night.

Wasn’t sure how I’d manage with all three ( 5, 7 and almost 9) but it was fine. There was a mixture of fun and boredom for them.

A hot summer night.  No rain. Saw a lot of students from school and the grandchildren seemed fascinated as the kids called my name.


Our seats had a great vantage point for the activity on the Allegheny River, too.

  1. Hope the ball game wasn’t overshadowed by the activity on the river – looks like there were some interesting vessels passing by 🙂

  2. I never knew they had a Pittsburgh Public School Night at PNC. Looks like everyone had a grand time!

  3. wow Ruth, entertaining a crowd of three grandchildren isn’t easy – I feel the load on my shoulders, even if they are only in my little house, they are aged 1, 3 and 5…

    • Frizz you are right, it is no small task. Such a responsibility. Mine are a little older 5,7, and almost 9 (Anna stayed home in Ohio for swim team obligations. She is easy, going to be 11) Good to hear from you. I always enjoy your music and photographs.

  4. A mixture of fun and boredom sounds pretty spot-on for a baseball game. At least you had great seats that afforded you opportunities to watch “distractions” when needed. 🙂 Great pics! (As always.)

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
