This post brought to you by PA Tourism. All opinions are 100% mine. I love living in Northwestern Pennsylvania! Of course, I like to complain about the cold winters and the hot summers but for the most part this area is one of the greatest ones to live in. Along with many natural and historic […]

my daughter and I at Monster Jam June 2012

Last Saturday I convinced the family to go to the Advanced Auto Parts Monster Jam at the Lake Erie Speedway. We’ve attended a few races at this Erie, PA racetrack in the past and enjoy the track atmosphere so I thought it would be a fun night out for all of us!  Six trucks were […]

We had a great family night out on Tuesday! We went and saw The Harlem Globetrotters at Tullio Arena! This is the second time we’ve gone to see them and it was still funny. Last year we had awesome seats right up front but for some reason the seating chart was NOT right on the […]

All summer long I have been hearing about the Elk in PA. Several cousins, a friend (her friend) and even random Facebook updates –have all been teasing us with photos and stories about visiting the herd located on the other side of the Allegheny National Forest. Finally, the Saturday before last, (the ninth) we couldn’t […]

A visit to The Pioneer Gas & Steam Engine Society

Last Saturday morning we ventured out to visit a local attraction. Well, kind of local, when you live in rural PA, anything within an hour’s drive is considered a local attraction! I’ve driven past the sign for The Pioneer Steam & Gas Engine Society many times over the years without giving it much thought. When […]

Harlem Globetrotters at Tullio Arena

Monday night we had a really great night out! When I had noticed that The Harlem Globetrotters would be in town this month I knew we had to get tickets. Since Pie discovered her love of playing basketball last year we’ve been trying to do more things that get her involved in the sport. We […]

We had a really fun family weekend, it went by so fast but I think we managed to make some good memories! On Saturday it was the annual family reunion at the. After a little mix up with the time (we were two hours late! eek!) the rest of the day was spent visiting, chatting, […]

Talk about a completely random week! I just remembered this morning that I left you hanging last week when I mentioned a surprise for my Mm and Lee. The big secret was that we bought tickets for us all to go see the WWE Raw tour. Our closest city isn’t very big so this was […]

Somehow my brain just skipped right over Wednesday so I missed out on posting my planned Wordless post! I knew I should have scheduled it in! I couldn’t wait until next week to share these fun lake pictures with you though. Last week my daughter’s friend called up late in the afternoon to go to […]
