The kids had a great time playing in the pools, sandbox and on the swing sets while we all had the chance to visit!
Maggie was bound and determined to get across these monkey bars. Fionn didn't quite care that he didn't have swim trunks, he jumped right in the pool!
Somehow I didn't get a shot of the Bolte Boys and from the looks of this next picture, Fionn caught the pool right at a time when the big kids took a break!
Cate was busy being handed around to family we don't get to see that often, and I won't lie...I barely held her during the picnic!
Hope loved hanging out on the blanket watching those crazy brothers of hers play! She had the cutest little 4th of July outfit on!
Imagine that, Fionn and Mikey found their way to the cupcakes! LOL. These two are so adorable together! They def. keep us all hopping when we get to go home (right Mema?)
Norah was writing her name with her sparkler!
See those fireworks going off over there to the right? They weren't the only ones. The city may not have provided the fireworks, but the city sky was filled with them! Look at that smile!!
Thanks for all the fun Erie friends! It was a BLAST (hahaaaaa) getting to hang out with all of you!!

The thoughts of The Pittsburgh Hites at 7:26 PM
Wednesday, July 21, 2010
Oh my goodness, I see a trend in the month of July on my blog. Not many posts at all. I guess that means we are too busy LIVING to stop and write everything down...So here is where we have been, it's been QUITE the summer! You all know about our vacation, and our love of the zoo and all things water so here a little more of what we have been up to (in pictures, of course)

They both had different Missions and we are excited to do both! Maggie's mission is to write notes of thanks and to send them to "Thank a Veteran" in California. Fionn's envelope had a bunch of blank paper addressed to a Senior high rise in the area. He's supposed to color or paint on all the paper and then we'll send it off to hopefully brighten someone's day. Seriously, how AWESOME is that?!!!? We're sooo excited to do our missions.
After we got our Missions we took a walk on the North Shore. We stopped and visited the Fred Rogers Memorial on the North Shore while waiting for our next event! Last Wednesday was the Sea to Shining Sea Bike Ride stopped here in Pittsburgh. We had originally planned to go cheer them on at Maggie's school, but there was no way we could make it back in time after our trip downtown. Luckily they were riding TO the North Shore and we're planning a stop there so we were in the right place at the right time (for once)
We still had a little time before they got there, so we continued our walk and even had lunch at Bettis Grill 36 (it was YUMMY)
