The Water Steps

A few weeks ago, we discovered a beautiful place to visit! 

Nestled behind PNC Park in Pittsburgh, in North Shore Riverfront Park, is a hidden gem:  The Water Steps! Surprisingly, we had never gone there before.  We had planned to go on several occasions, but it never happened.  Let me just say, we were missing out on a great (FREE!) spot to play!

The walk to the Water Steps is a beautiful one. The path winds along the river, and offers amazing views of Point State Park, PNC Park, and downtown Pittsburgh.

Liam fell asleep in his stroller during our walk, but the girls were amazed when they spotted the Water Steps!  They immediately climbed in and made their way to the middle of the steps.

We hadn't planned on going to the Water Steps that day, and we didn't bring swimsuits.  It was a beautiful, hot summer day, though, so I told them to get soaked.  They wasted no time!

I didn't want Liam to miss out on all the fun. I woke him up, stripped him down to his diaper, and stuck him in the water!

At first, I was nervous about one of the kids slipping and getting hurt, but they maneuvered around safely. I waded in the water with Liam, and took in the gorgeous view of the city directly across from the Water Steps.

We spent over an hour at the Water Steps, but we truly could have spent the entire afternoon playing there.  The kids had SO much fun!

Convincing the girls it was time to leave was a difficult task, but I promised them we would return as soon as we possibly could!
