Grocery Shopping

Everybody needs groceries. Even if you choose to eat out for most of your meals, you will still need to visit a grocery store on occasion.

We left Ottawa and crossed the border back into the United States, into the state of New York to be exact. We had about a five hour drive ahead of us and we ended up stopping in a town called Syracuse. We didn’t see much of it, but did stop at an awesome place called Dinosaur BBQ. We had ourselves some authentic American BBQ for lunch.

Poopsie’s meal.
