Excursion: Grandparents’ Day

We celebrate our grandparents every year! In September 2021, we rented out a shelter at Schenley Park. We all enjoyed a meal together and gave out awards to our exceptional grandparents and neighbors.

Excursion: Pittsburgh Ballet

May 2021

Families enjoyed an in person lunch and low key birthday celebration for Carolyn, Jo-Jo, Nita and Tameeka. After lunch we headed to Flagstaff Hill at Schenley Park to listen to the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater Orchestra and watch a program of classical and contemporary ballet.

Excursion: Parking Garages

April 2021

The April excursion was an investigation of parking garages in downtown Pittsburgh. Because we are a bit rusty in traveling and experiencing places together, we went to the wrong garage!

We took a glass elevator ride up to the top of a parking garage at 7th and Penn Avenue. We were supposed to be at 6th and Penn Avenue for Downtown Pittsburgh’s Car Bazaar. Fortunately, someone spotted the flea market from the rooftop. So we all headed back down the elevator to Penn Avenue, walked a block and up another elevator. Joey performed a bit of vendor reconnaissance for the Hazelwood markets. Everyone else did some shopping and then we went to lunch.

At the Science Center

Post-lunch some of us took the train to the North Side and went to the Carnegie Science Center. You can take your own creative tour of parking garages with this AEU guide!
