A couple weeks ago the Joneswald crew headed back to the ‘burgh to see the elder yinzers. We brought Marlowe along for a couple new adventures. On Saturday, we explored the Pittsburgh Zoo with Grandpa. This would mark Marlowe’s second visit to a zoo, but the first where she was actually awake during any part.
On our trip we saw:
We also saw some giraffes, elephants, and the new baby sea lion. Also of note was a young whippersnapper wondering what a “Mario Le-mix” was. We hope his parents explained that he is a rare breed of the fastest, most accurate ice mammals.
On Sunday, we took a trek to the famous Kennywood. Even though Marlowe stood on her tippy-toes, she was still a bit too short for most rides, but she did get a couple rides on the Merry Go Round.
The weather was a bit spotty, which meant the lines were at a minimum! While Marlowe was hamming it up getting all the other park-goers to say how cute she was, we snuck off and grabbed a couple rides ourselves. All in all, we had a great time! Can’t wait to take the little baron on her first ride on the Thunderbolt!
