Holiday Road

We felt like the Griswold's trekking cross country in the family truckster to visit family on both sides of the Mason Dixon Line in August. We started our trip visiting as many Pittsburgh sites as we could including Kennywood where our family fun day was threatened and cut short due to tornado warnings. After that, we headed for Tennessee - not an easy task with a potty training three year old in the van. During one "Raymond Rest Stop" along side the road, the police arrived (probably to make sure we didn't have a dog tied to the bumper.) After Tennessee, we journeyed to Altoona, Pa where we wanted to visit DelGrosso's Amusement Park. Alas, the parking lot was empty and visions of John Candy continually reeled through our heads.
