Greetings from Pittsburgh - edited @ 9:27pm Eastern Time 2/14/10

Hello Blog Friends,
Well, I have recouperated from our travels - nice to have had that Friday to rest up. We did go to bed at 7am...I woke up around noon and got in some exercise while Robert (older son) slept in until about 2pm. He did eat a little breakfast, but held out for the recommended restaurant: Primanti Brothers. This is the sandwich shop which has been featured on Food Network - where they make a sandwich that includes french fries, slaw and a tomato.
Since I am not a big sandwich person, I stuck with my salad with a side of their famous slaw (delicious). However, Robert did have a cornbeef sandwich with cheese on french bread that did have the slaw, frenchfries and a tomato. It was huge!
After that we just went back to the room for a quiet evening while watching the opening ceremonies of the olympics.

Saturday, Robert had two games - both of which his team won. In between the games we had lunch at Olive Garden...a favorite during hockey tournaments because of the pasta and for dinner after the last game it was BBQ at a place called Smokin' Bones.

This morning, we had a game at 8am. This was one of the tougher ones so far which ended in a tie of 4-4. Robert got the 4th goal of the game for his team (the San Jose Jr. Sharks Bantam AAA). It was almost the game winning goal, until the other team (the Pittsburgh Predators) scored in the last 2 minutes - thus the tie. Robert had a great game and it was fun to watch. They did win the second game of the day 4-2 and are in first place as we head into the semi-finals tomorrow morning at 7am. If we win that we go to the championship at 12noon...and then we get on a 5:30pm plane and head back to California.
Well...I will not bore you any more with hockey related news. Not getting much stitching down right now, but wanted to post an update on life. Take care and remember...Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often, Lisa
