Visit to Hunter in PA 8/2011.

We made the trek out to see Hunter in Pittsburgh, since he was only going to be home for such a short period of time this summer due to research he was doing and getting paid for at Pitt. We got out there sunday afternoon, walked around, he showed Bailey some of the campus and had dinner.Dinner, was at the Cheesecake Factory, food was ok but dessert was awesome. Tim almost fell on the floor and the waitresses comment was, that is why the employees have to wear special shoes. We actually got to see them filming some of the new Batman movie. They were on the campus for 5 days, I understand now why movies cost so much. It was mind blowing the number of trailers, people, security detail and all else that is needed to make a movie. We then went back to the hotel to relax and visit until tim took him back to his apartment around 10. We met him the next morning for breakfast, then took him to work. While he was at work, we went back and walked more of the campus, did some retail therapy at the stores and then went to pick Hunter back up and headed to the Pitt Zoo. We stayed there for about 3 hours and then headed to shop and dinner. Afterwards we went grocery shopping with Hunter to stock him up on fruit and what he needed for the next week or so until he would come to TX for 9 days. The next morning, we checked out of the hotel and met Hunter for a quick breakfast at Paneras's, before he needed to go to work and we headed to MD. It was nice to see where he has lived for the past 2 years and summer. Tim has always moved him in and I have stayed here in TX with the other kids.
