we continued our western new york eating tour by hitting up the pok-a-dot for some beef on weck and gravy fries. (for newer readers of this blog, my gramma, mom and i all worked at the pok-a-dot. a lot of memories. and old friendly faces. i think it’s a national treasure. no? it should be.)
the timing of our pok-a-dot trip was intentional. knowing that we would leave with a distinct “deep fried” scent, we planned for a time when we’d be swimming shortly afterwards. my friend julie and her isaac and anna and abigail met us for some beach swimming.
i don’t know what we did the rest of the day. because it’s not documented by photo and the week is a blur. the next pic i own is of these chicken wings. which was what we had for lunch the next day… at paulie’s pizza.
in the afternoon, we drove to buffalo (williamsville to be precise), to visit our old north carolina friends, the browns. you might remember i kept the girls some before hazel arrived. well, they moved back to buffalo and we miss them, but we are thankful we still get to see them once in awhile.
we also ran into some other nc folks while dining. micah and jude were on an anniversary date in buffalo and happened to be nearby. they met up with us at the restaurant for a bit. and then we all strolled around williamsville for a bit.
i think isaac and annie will have a lifelong love/hate relationship.
more walking. williamsville is delightful.
our final stop was to a cute little ice cream and candy shop that i wish i took more pictures of. there was a piano outside. these aspiring musicians didn’t miss the opportunity to bang out some noise.
playing so nicely together. a rarity.
and that was that for days three and four. i think.
