Corning, NY sculpture

Corning, New York, to be exact. We pulled off the interstate and lucked in to what appears to be an incredibly cute town. We checked in to the Radisson which lies at the end of the Gaffer District, a historic district with shops, galleries and eateries. We took a short stroll after check in to Aniello's Pizzeria for a pie with lots of garlic & cheese. Mmmm... We may take the time to explore a bit tomorrow before hitting the road again.

As for today's drive... There isn't much to share. We left our hotel, got through the rest of Indiana and drove on I-80 through Ohio to Cleveland. It's a toll road... Funny that it was a worse highway than the "free" ones...

There is a really nice service stop on the Ohio Turnpike right before Cleveland... It's Vermilion Valley... Really nice and big; clean; with a Starbucks, Panera, Great Steak & Potato, Popeye's...

The only weather we ran into was driving through Cleveland. Huge snowflakes and reduced visibility. But it didn't last long and the road was clear as we got onto I-90 and headed into Pennsylvania.

Forty-five miles later were entered New York. We're taking the southern route. The terrain reminds me of Kentucky and Tennessee; large hills, not quite mountains, with villages in the valleys.

Tomorrow evening will find us arriving in Scituate at Ocean Perch. It will be nice to tuck into a bed knowing we don't have to drive the next day. Unfortunately I won't have internet until the 19th unless I find a coffee shop near the house with wi-fi... So if we do explore Corning tomorrow you'll have to wait a few days to hear about it.

And for those who are keeping track... Caelan is on a roll. Day 3 of dry diapers and pee-pee on the potty when we got to the hotel! Woo-Hoo! I am not buying any more diapers!

Yeah for Caelen! Very exciting news. It looks like you guys are already having a great time but I bet it will be nice to get to a "permanent" destination tomorrow.

Hooray for Caelan! Get a Starbucks card and register it at www.starbucks.com/wifi for 2 consecutive hours of free wifi per day at Starbucks. Glad the trip is going well.

So exciting for Caelen! A nice bonus on the trip east.

I can't wait to see how you make the house your own, and what it looks like through Jody's eyes! Drive safe

Glad to hear your trip is going well! Congrats to Caelen, of course, too!

Toby is doing just fine. He isn't eating a lot, but he is still eating. He growled at me Sunday morning once, but that has been all.

Ha, that last comment would be from me - Amanda H. :)

It sounds like a great trip! Dare I say that I'm jealous? Although the last car trip we took with the boys made me swear I'd never do another! Can't wait to hear all about the cute house and town! And Caelan--what a good girl you are for Mommy! Oh, and Miss Jen at preschool says she misses the girls already! :) Take care of yourselves and can't wait to hear more from your adventures!
