Sun safety is a big deal in my family. My son has skin grafts on both of his arms, and my wife has had more suspicious moles removed from her body than I can count, so to say that we are hyper-aware of the dangers of the sun is an understatement. Personal circumstances aside, even […]

My family loves going to parks and loves exploring different areas of the city. But being a South Hills resident, I often don’t explore the other areas of the city and let the tunnels and bridges become a barrier to enjoy all that the city has to offer. In an effort to get out of […]

Although the recent weather made it a little challenging to find a day to visit, we made the best of a rainy, “Pittsburgh gray” day playing with friends and exploring part of this gem bordering the […]

I spent the month of February looking at spring and early-summer organized sports for children that are age two in our area, particularly t-ball because he loves baseball and thought he […]
