I feel like Pittsburgh is an under-valued city for tourism. There's so much to see and do here it surprises me that I haven't heard more people talk about going there. I enjoyed it very much and wished I had more time to explore. I hope to go back again, but its a long way to go for a weekend.
After returning to I hotel met up with most of the family and sat outside and talked for a while in the covered patio area, then everyone got dressed for the graduation. First there was a small reception with sandwiches, salads, cookies, and drinks, then the diploma ceremony.
The general commencement ceremony was early in the morning. We all decided just to attend the diploma ceremony for his specific group in the Tepper Business School. David's major was Business Administration with a 2nd major in Creative Writing. He's already gotten a job with a DC consulting firm starting in July. We're all very proud of his accomplishments. Afterward David posed for photos with all the family. Here are just two:

When I got back to the hotel several of the family had gathered in our room and we talked and ate cookies that Karen had made.
The next morning Spouse & I and Aunt Mary headed back home. It was a great weekend full of quality time with friends and both sides of my family.
