In what seems like another practice run before traveling to NYC – we took a little road trip to Rochester, NY this past weekend. It wasn’t all for fun as we had a robotics tournament to go to. But – I still was able to do all my “American Things” and spend some $. We left Kanata fairly late in the afternoon on Friday at around 4:30pm. I am very glad that we are traveling the bulk of the Ottawa-New Jersey trip in the daytime as driving at night just isn’t my cup of tea. We should be leaving Ottawa at noon, leaving a good 6 hours of daylight travel time – which is most of the trip. Anyways, we strolled into Rochester just before 10:30pm. We settling into the hotel, with Max taking a whole queen-sized bed to himself.
The next morning, P left early for robots and Max and I had a hotel adventure. We had a crappy hotel breakfast and watched Full House and Spongebob. P picked us up just before noon and we went to the robotics tournament for a bit. Of course, it being lunch time, Max and I quickly left for the Cheesecake Factory. Luckily, I am familiar with Rochester, so I quickly got us to the restaurant with no issues. Max had chicken fingers and fruit, while I had fish tacos! I ordered a pumpkin cheesecake to go.
The location of the Cheesecake Factory was also right [...]
