Pittsburgh here we come! Tonight my husband and I will take two flights to get us across the country to my hometown for a week long visit. It's been almost a year and a half since I've been back home and this summertime trip is long overdue.
Bagheera, our cat, is less than thrilled to be left behind in Seattle but is always excited to see a bag to jump into. Hopefully I can continue my ongoing trend of carry on bags only later today!
Packing for a trip back to Mom and Dad's house is always so much less pressure than when we're going someplace new and staying in hotels. In this case we just bring what we need and they provide the food, lodging, and access to vehicles!
What we will certainly need are plane snacks. I always load up on snacks to keep us entertained and full so that we avoid any hangry situations or purchasing crappy or overpriced airplane food. Annie, Justin, and Ophelia are coming along with us this time.
Here is my go to strategy for plane snacks:
While we're in Pittsburgh we have a long list of places to go, friends to see, and foods to eat! The major priorities are:
And, of course, I can't wait to visit with my whole entire family, old friends, and my parents' dog! We're going to our family cabin for a few days, which is one of my favorite places on this planet. My Mom and Dad remodeled their kitchen and dining room since I last went home and I look forward to making good grub and a big mess in someone else's kitchen :)
Happy July 4th Weekend, yinz guys.
