Day 21 & 22 – Back To Reality
Learn the ASL signs for ‘last’ ‘day’
We have wrapped up our trip in Rochester NY. We normally go to see the Rochester Redwings play as we have a dear friend that works for them but this visit there was no home game. We were sad not to go to the ball park. If any of you have ever gone to see a AAA baseball game in the US then you know how fun it is. The crowed is family friendly, the fans are normally very energetic and the food is amazing. The hot dogs are they type you can get from a street vendor and not ones that have been boiled and are sitting in hot water waiting to be bought. If hot dogs are not your thing there are tons of other choices from specialty deli sandwiches to Philly cheese steaks and more. We often go to a game where there are fireworks after. It’s just a great fun family activity! Our next favorite thing to do in Rochester (and really, may even be tied for first) is going to Dinosaur BBQ. If you love BBQ and you are in Rochester this is a must visit. Be aware that if you go on a weekend you will be waiting for a table but the wait is well worth it. You can enjoy a beverage outside near all the Harley-Davidsons that are in the lot. We’ve always had great staff and the food is outstanding. I love the pulled pork sandwich and the mac & cheese, yummy!!
We spent our last day shopping at Target and Tops Supermarket. We have to get all our delicious (and bad for you) food from the US. We look like the worst parents going through the checkout. We have American beer, white gravy, cookies, candy, chips and every other kind of junk food we can’t get back home. There are no fruit, veggies or meat in our cart. I’ve always love the look we sometimes get from the checkout girl as she looks at our beautiful children and wonder how they are so healthy looking 🙂
Crossing over the border and driving down the highway home is always bitter-sweet. It’s always nice to be back home but I always miss the fun, carefree times a holiday brings. The family bonding, sleeping in, eating at restaurants, not having to do dishes or make beds and swimming everyday are just some of the things I enjoy on our vacation.
Thank you to everyone who have enjoyed following along with us on our fun family road trip.
