Home Sweet Home

We returned home today from a fun, albeit busy vacation. We started out last Monday in the Amish Country of Cattaraugus County and happened upon the Cattaraugus County Stage Coach Run. There was a vintage stage coach and about 20 chuck wagons in a wagon train. They were making a week long, 180 mile tour of the county.
On Tuesday we went to Darien Lake Theme Park and on Wednesday we went to the Erie County Fair. The kids certainly had their fill of rides and junk food. The Erie County Fair was HUGE! It rivaled, if not surpassed the State Fair in Syracuse.
Thursday was a bit of a recuperation day, although Cade and I found time to go fly fishing in a new creek. Friday we visited the quaint ski village of Ellicottville and then to Little Rock City north of Salamanca. On Saturday we took a steam train ride on the Arcade & Attica Railroad, followed by an evening at Holland Speedway to see some NASCAR short track racing. Yesterday was going to be another relaxation day, but we were invited on short notice to attend the Buffalo Bison's game in a sky box. That was a lot of fun and relaxing too. Unfortunately they lost to the Pawtucket Red Sox 8-3. Thank you Terry and Bill for the invite.

Sarah made a new friend at an Amish toy shop.

Cade at Little Rock City.

I would have taken more photos, but I left my cameras behind in favor of a small yet frustrating digital point and shoot. I felt like trying to run a NASCAR race with a bicycle.
