I just love to go to a live ballgame and before I'd left home I'd checked to see if the Pirates had a home game while we were there. They did! The we're playing their rival the Milwaukee Brewers so I asked Jeff to get us all tickets and I'd pay! Monday was the day and we were off to the park at 4:30 for a 6:30 start.

Last Sunday we were off to Pam and David's for a little pool time. Pam has been a stand in Gramma to Ava and Shane and is Krista's very good friend. She and David have always been there for the kids and for that I am grateful. Pam also teaches lessons at Silvercrest which Krista and Jeff operate.

One thing I really wanted to see in Pittsburgh was the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical gardens. The current event there right now is the Billy Porter costume exhibit. Added on to that are costumes created by local design students that are all plant based. Slotted in here and there are resident Dale Chihuly blown glass art objects. Everything is in the multi winged Victorian glass conservatory and it was stunning! Krista, Joy and I spent two hours touring it. There are 85 pictures plus in this blog. I will comment on a few pictures but most are self explanatory.
This is from Wikipedia, have a look if you like.
The exhibits by Billy Porter's love of fashion. Again, check Wikipedia for his bio.
Years ago Eric and I visited the Phoenix Desert Botanical gardens where Dale Chihuly's exhibit was on display. If you ever get the opportunity to view his work please do, as you won't be disappointed!
Joy was better at this than me😆
