We had our monthly family night for January and decided to go to Pittsburgh’s RV Show! I made a list of ideas (ice skating, arcade, bowling, etc, most of which were not quite baby friendly… not sure how we would have ice skated with a baby 🤣) and the RV show won.
Plus, the night we went, the tickets were BOGO and Sadie and Mordecai were free to enter because they were under five-years-old. So we paid $12.50 for our whole family to see a whole bunch of cool campers! We won’t talk about the fact that parking was $13. That’s city life for ya 😉
Jimmy and I have been to Pittsburgh’s RV show quite a few times over the years and always enjoy dreaming about camping, warmer weather, and are absolutely blown away at how high tech campers are these days.
Pittsburgh’s convention center gets filled with hundreds of RVs from different vendors for two weeks and all of the campers are opened and turned on for guests to check out and even purchase on the spot.
We must have walked into upwards of 30-40 RVs this year, but in years past, we’ve gone in every. single. one. on both floors of the convention center.
Some of the bathrooms in these campers were bigger than our home’s bathroom and had double sinks in the vanity! There were kitchen islands, full refrigerators, glass stove tops, ceiling fans, sliding glass doors, leather couches, pantries, two bathrooms, and even upstairs lofts.
We knew Sadie would be super excited to check everything out and I tried to prep her and explain the event but nothing really explains it until you experience it yourself! She had so much fun and wanted to go into every single RV. We met up with Jimmy’s dad and step mom, too, which made the evening even more special for us all!
Once we got home, Sadie was eating a snack at the dinner table before bed and fell asleep while sitting up. She hadn’t done that in quite some time. I think it was a sign that she had a great time!
I’m already looking forward to next month’s family night.
