Vacation: Mission Accomplished

Last week's vacation was fun, productive and exhausting. Here are some bullet points...


  • We picked up the KIA Sedona van my Dad gave us. (The check engine light came on as we crossed the NY/PA border on the way home. It was one of those "gas cap not closed properly" errors!) That was the only glitch. Everything has been working fine, otherwise. THANKS, DAD!
  • I went to an Artie Shaw tribute concert with my Dad and sister Kim at Artpark in Lewiston, NY. Great show & good company; who could ask for more?
  • We had four chicken barbecues during the five days we were in Buffalo: Tuesday = At my sister, Amy's house, Wednesday = My Brother-In-Law's house, Thursday = My friend, Bill's house (these were grilled chicken-kabobs) and Friday = My Father-In-Law's neighbor's house. There were so much left-over from this last one that we ate chicken for two more days on the road and after we got home. Cluck, Cluck, Cluck!
  • I did an unspecified activity with people I am not at liberty to mention. It's been years since we've done this sort of thing and it was fun! (I can say no more.)
  • We were a party of 13 various Uncles, Aunts, Grand Parents and cousins on Wednesday when we went to the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY. This is a whole museum dedicated to the concept of play. There were plenty of stimulating, interactive exhibits for the kiddies. Mariel especially liked the "Clifford the big red dog" room.

Rest and Relaxation were not on the agenda, though. I suppose you could consider "exhaustion" as being a variant of "relaxation" but it is a stretch...

Exhausting though it may have been, it sounds like a great time was had by all!

Sounds like a great vacation but that you need a vacation to recover from it.

Glad the van worked well.

That's a jam-packed vacation, but sounds like it went well.
