|Inside Heinz Hall, very ornate interior|
So, my Johnny, planned a fun-filled day in Pittsburgh for us on Saturday. It began with a mid-morning symphony. I thought this a little strange to have a symphonic concert at 11am, but didn't think much of it. I was just excited to go to the 'big city' and listen to classical music. We left at 9:30 and made it just in time. As we were walking to Heinz Hall, I kept seeing so a lot of children. I thought "Isn't that nice all these families are out today on this beautiful summer day." However, they were all heading to Heinz Hall. As we entered, there were children everywhere to see the symphony---John had purchased tickets to the 'Fiddlesticks' Family Symphony.
After the symphony, we grabbed our pre-packed picnic and headed to a park in the heart of Pittsburgh. There had been a race that morning, so it was a perfect people-watching attraction. We sat on a hillside and watched the variety of people pass by while eating our chicken salad and bagels. I must say picnics create a sense of calm and we really were enjoying ourselves. We just laid in the grass and talked. I love summer because everyone seems more happy.
