Finally, for the long-awaited pictures:
We began our vacation this summer with a long drive from the Chicago area all the way to Pittsburgh. The kids had some fun playing with Wikki Stix in the car.
That evening after a nice Italian dinner next to the hotel, we drove around the city. I had heard that Pittsburgh was very pretty, and it was!
The next morning we went to the National Aviary, or the Bird Zoo, as we described it to our animal-loving 2 yo. There were some fun hands-on experiences and a neat flight show.
The Aviary was a great place. Above you can see that we were able to “feed the Lories.” We became members (even though we won’t be going back anytime soon) since it only cost $2 more. We’ve already made up for the cost by getting free parking at the Chicago Botanic Garden and a great discount at the Morton Arboretum!
