The summer has come to an official end.

Last week (Wednesday) I brought in the WRX for its 44,049-mile oil change, tire rotation, and wiper-blade replacement. Friday I dropped off the dogs at the kennel, and we began our 1,200-mile weekend round trip to visit friends in Central and Western New York, and my family outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The trip was great, and it’s pretty awesome what we were able to accomplish between Friday evening and Sunday night.

Friday night we hung out with Steph and Dave in Sterling, NY, and crashed with them before continuing on to PA to visit my grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins. Saturday night we stayed at my grandparents’ place (the same house where my Mom grew up), then headed back east.

Nothing like driving 600 miles in one day (Sunday) with stops at the Finger Lake wineries and the Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca to feel like you’ve covered a lot of ground. We met up with Johnny and his crew for stops at a few wineries before heading to a disappointing and overpriced dinner (the restaurant doesn’t touch any of the meals Jen makes from the Moosewood cookbook).

We capped off the summer last night with some delicious cajun catfish on the grill and The Station Agent on the tube.
