Mom's Visit to Syracuse

My mom came to visit Chris and I for a few days last weekend. We had a lot of fun and ate lots of good food. :-)

Here's a lovely picture of my mom when we were looking for mirrors at Salvation Army for my wall of mirrors project.
Below is the shrimp scampi I made for dinner one night.

My mom was baffled by the fact that some of the street lights in New York have a black frame.

Here she is on a hayride taking us around Abbott's Farm. We picked apples and pumpkins, got lost in a 10-acre corn maze, and shot apples out of an apple cannon (Mom was the only one to hit the target).

Even with a picture of the map on Chris's cell phone, we still got lost.

Chris steps up for his turn.

We got back and decorated our pumpkins from the farm. This is mine. It's supposed to be of our cat, Oreo, but I think this is a little too skinny to be our fat cat. ;-)

Day at the Zoo

On Saturday, Chris and I decided we wanted to get outside for a bit. Having just gone rollerblading last weekend in the park, we decided to change it up and head to the Syracuse Zoo. It turned out to be a good choice. The animals were so great. It's not a very large zoo, but you do get to get much closer to the animals than in other zoos I've been to. Here's some of the pictures from our day.

Books I've Read

I recently found this great website where I can list all of the books I've read, along with reviews and ratings. Maybe I'm one of the few people that will really enjoy this, but I love being able to see all the book covers lined up so nicely. So I guess if you want a book recommendation from me, definitely check this out. :-)

If any of you have an account through, feel free to recommend some more to me.
