My son got married this past weekend. I am still so excited about the whole event. What a wonderful time for our family. Now I’m a mother-in-law, and I’m hoping to do a really good job. My husband and I have a great daughter-in-law and my son is so happy. Fantastic!
The wedding was held in Pittsburgh, across the state from where we live in Philadelphia. The trip takes us almost the whole length of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. So, my husband and I decided to leave some souvenirs of our passing along the way to Pittsburgh.
The turnpike is a limited access road; there are rest stops along the way. They’ve been rebuilt in the past 10 or so years and they all look alike, you’ll notice. So did the old ones, but they were cramped and out of date (the turnpike has been around since the 1950’s). I particularly like the signage – the state of Pennsylvania is represented with the road stretching across it. The red star is the current location. We were traveling from east to west, or from right to left. Notice the red star moving along with us…
First stop, Lawn.
Next, Blue Mountain.
We stop a lot on driving trips, as you can see. It’s only a five-hour drive, but…I like to get out of the car, and we needed to eat lunch, and so on and so on!
In Pittsburgh we went to Schenley Park. We ran one day and took a walk the afternoon after the wedding on Saturday. We left several figurines scattered around – here’s a representative one.
Now we have left good wishes for the newlyweds all over the whole state!
