St. Patrick's Day in Pittsburgh

Not to be missed (since we had such great time in 2013), we returned to Pittsburgh this year for the St. Patrick's Day festivities and to celebrate the birth of the most fantastic (or OKAYEST,  as Adam declared the past weekend) brother in the world! This time we joined the bus from Johnstown so we didn't have to worry about driving, parking, or finding a hotel overnight. It was a festive social occasion that included Mike getting a temporary tattoo of giant green lips on the back of his neck. Good times by all!
The bus dropped us off at the casino, where we burned through the "free" casino dollars that came with paying for the bus, and then we were out and about the city enjoying the sites while bar hopping.

Yep, I picked them... :)

They produced that giant leprechaun

Like mother, like son

The final family picture for a while. This was Adam's farewell to Michael and Johnna until the holidays. And his parents when we left Johnstown the next morning. Ugh, it was hard, and it wasn't even my departure!

So awesome

Johnna and them dealing with us

Between the parade, the beer gardens, and other festivities, this city really knows how to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. And it was an absolutely gorgeous day to enjoy it as well. I highly recommend the venture should you want to celebrate in true Irish style!
