take me out to the ball game

tannon's ideas of sports are:
snowboarding, rock climbing, and mountain biking.
don't get me wrong, i absolutely love
and adore those sports as well,
but let's be honest... i miss ball games.
my growing up years consisted of playing and watching sports.
i miss those days like nobodies business.
pittsburgh treats their teams as a religion. no really.
i don't know how you can live here without getting sucked in.

we went to our first Pirates game and PNC Park
is beautiful.

*in case you're wondering,the Pirates played the Philidelphia Phillies (2008 World Series Champs) and beat them 3-2. i think we brought them good luck.

my mare bear

our trip to d.c. was fabulous. seeing my maren was such a delight.
she is like a sister to me and it's SO nice to have "family"within driving distance. her & ry-guy are the best.

have i mentioned that the
thunderstorms out here are incredible?
seriously, i can't get enough of them.
i wish pictures could capture the actual
beauty, but sometimes they just can't.
our drive home from D.C. was beautiful.

we are really starting to love it here. it's becoming a little more like home each day.

dear Pittsburgh

here we are. in pittsburgh. i love my dishwasher.
i love my central air. i love my ward.

i am adjusting to this city day by day.
we have met some really great people out here
and i can't wait to get to know them better.

there are buildings everywhere here and the houses are all built SO close together.
i kind of feel like i have lost a large amount of privacy.
today tannon and i went to a park called Frick Park and it was heavenly.
this park actually felt like we were in the mountains and it was SO nice to escape all of the craziness and enjoy nature.

sorry i don't have more pictures. i will take some of our house soon. stay tuned...

now we're off to Washington D.C. to visit ryan & maren!
i love that we're now in the same time zone...
