I've been hit and miss with so many of our adventures up north, but I'm trying my best to document everything on more than just Instagram, so that I can remember the details on down the road.
Several weeks ago one of the local hockey teams made the playoffs and Husby was scheduled to cover it, so we all loaded up and went with him to Rochester, NY. We had so much fun! I just can't get over how fun it is exploring this part of the country that we probably otherwise never would.
The first day that we got there Husby had to go to the arena super early, so the boys and I set out to explore. We found lots of fun sights before heading back for the big game that night.
I took full advantage of having a field trip and history lesson for the boys, so our first stop was to Susan B. Anthony's house.
I just love how history comes alive up here where it all happened. Amazing! When we were finished there, Levi threw his head back on the back of his seat and said, "Phew! That was the longest history lesson of my LIFE." Haha! When I quizzed Ezra about what he had learned he said that Susan B. Anthony said bad words and had to go to the police. Haha, oh these boys!
Next, we found this historic lighthouse and took many a picture next to it. :)
I tried giving Levi a history lesson here too, but he was a bit burnt out after the whole SBA expedition.
After the game we had a late dinner at a Rochester fave. My my MY!!
We hit the streets early the next day to make the most of everything. Husby and I love exploring the local food markets when we hit up a new city. This one did not disappoint!
And neither did the cannoli. :)
Husby and I have been on a cannoli tour the past several months, and we go to a new bakery each weekend testing out the cannoli. Yum!
We had a fun day exploring the city and just enjoying it at leisure, finding unique little spots and shops.
Some of my favorite times when I'm away with my family are the nights back at the hotel. We all crash together, laugh and reminisce about our days, and we each tell our favorite part of the day. Treasured moments!
The next day was for the boys. We hit up the National Museum of Play and we all had such a blast! So, so fun! By far one of the best children's museums out there.
My favorite part was the Berenstein Bears section. I've always LOVED the BB's!
It was a fantastic day. Oh, and we ate brunch at this amazing old diner. Picturesque!
We had such a fun weekend in upstate New York, exploring the sights and experiencing new things. Getting to do it all with my guy and our boys is absolutely priceless.
