Yesterday Sophie and I had the opportunity to visit Phipps Conservatory with some of my other mom friends. J and Cora were feeling under the weather, but Sophie and I had cabin fever and wanted to get out and do some thing. I met some of my friends from Pittsburgh at the botanical gardens and it lifted our spirits.
We chose a good time to go because they are in transition from their fall flower show into their Christmas displays. That meant that it wasn’t crowded and we got to see a little bit of both displays. Sophie enjoyed the model trains and Mr. Rogers replica, as well as the snow men!
It was the perfect pick-me-up and I’d highly recommend it to any one in or visiting the area. This week will be busy with Thanksgiving prep, so I am glad I had an opportunity to do some thing fun and relaxing with my dear daughter before the craziness of the holiday. What are you all up to this weekend?
