Utica to Rochester

We're off!!!! After pictures in our new t-shirts, we set off for Rochester at 11:30. First stop, the Strong Museum of Play. This museum has all kinds of memorabilia relating to toys. Even a Chatty Cathy doll - although, not the kind I remember - the one we saw was a little bigger. It was fun to see all kinds of toys from my childhood - a tin dollhouse, a Viewmaster, and a life-size Mr. Potato Head which we could decorate ourselves! We even had a try at hula hoops (see photo...). It was harder to do than I remember - why is that????

After dinner in the hotel, we're about to jump in the pool. It's in the 80's here, so that will be a great way to cool off.

Tomorrow - the Eastman Museum and Niagara Falls.
