I had a good weekend trip up to Rochester, NY to visit with family and friends. It was a short trip, but we packed a bunch of stuff in.
Of course food was a big part of the trip. As expected, I fit in my favorite pizza, Pontillo's! That was the highlight of the trip food wise and I brought back almost two large pizza in an insulated bag and managed to fit in a combo red/white Zweigles Hot Dog package as well for the wifey. In addition I brought home 4 loaves of Wegmans Cinnamon Swirl bread in my checked bag. Mmmm...We also had a Charlie Riedel's Cheeseburger/Fries and some Sticky Lips BBQ.

As far as activities, I got to see several friends from high school/college at Carmine's 5th Birthday. He is the son of my friend Mike/Colleen and it was held at Bernie's Bouncers Indoor Play Center. Mike even convinced me to get in the bounce house and go down the big slide, but not without also trying to tip over the bounce house and as I tried to make a quick jump down the slide he grabbed me and I ended up going down backwards as you can see below. I wouldn't expect anything less, he's always been the troublemaker of the bunch. :P
Mike just called as I was typing this post and he asked Carmine what his favorite part of the day was and he said playing with me in the bounce house. Niiice! Happy Birthday Carmine!

I had to fly back before Michelle's baby shower, but I hear it went very well with lots of people, great food and lots of gifts for baby Hadley.
All in all it was a fun / quick trip, with lots of things packed in and I was pretty worn out by the time I got home. Luckily Tuesday was a work from home day to ease back into things and I'm glad it is a shortened week!
My sister Jen and Jen S will probably do up a blog post or two about the trip once they get back and settled in and I'll try to link to those posts here when they go live.
Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!
