Cicero, New York & Rochester, New York

Saturday, December 19, 2009

So a bit of travel for us today, with an unexpected detour in the midst of it all. Our day started out with plans of going to Cicero to watch Mike's game, and then onto Rochester to pick up Sara and Andrew, who were flying up from Atlanta for the holidays.

The Twin Rinks in Cicero was our first stop, and to tell you the truth, as I write this, I don't remember the outcome of the game. We finished up there and headed onto the thruway for the trip to Rochester. The kids were leaving Atlanta just about the time we were leaving Cicero, so our timing would be good.

As we were getting off the thruway and heading into Rochester, my cell phone rang, and it was Sara! (who should have been in the air on her way to Rochester at this point). Apparently, there was a problem with the plane, after takeoff, that necessitated them returning to Atlanta and switching planes.

With a bit more time to kill now, we found the Dinosaur BBQ in Rochester and grabbed some lunch. What a different place this Dino was in comparison to the one in Syracuse! This was at least our second time there, and neither time did we have to wait for a table, in fact the place was quite empty. A stark contrast to the log jam that usually exists in Syracuse!

We had our meal, and headed to the airport where the kids arrived, safely, with their replacement plane. Back to Binghamton afterwards.
