Friday was a 'snow' (ice) day, topped with the husband going out of town and an ominous Sat/Sun forecast = a mom who had to get out of the house for a bit. Anywhere.
Brian was still running a fever, so our options were limited.
I decided we'd head to Rochester to check out their Big, Bright Light Show. I've never been to Rochester before - I wasn't sure what to expect. I figured we'd drive through - oooh and aaaaah - and then head back home.
But it was so cool, and so easy to find parking that we decided to get out and walk the main street for a better look.
We didn't last long. We all felt cold quick (33 and drizzling) and soon it really started coming down so we dashed back to the van. We're going to go back next year on a beautiful wintry night when we're all healthy and we can stroll about and check out some of the stores and eats.
The only store we wandered into was the Moon River Soap Company. Allan's excema is bad this year, so I found some soap for him that I'm hoping will ease it a bit.
Worth the drive. Even in the pouring rain.
And we didn't even hit any crazy tourists.
