A Day Trip

Yesterday we went on a little road trip - sort of for the birthday boy and sort of just for fun! And it was fun! We drove to Penn Yann first and dined at the ever popular Pizza Hut! I know, I know, but we were starving and hoping the buffet was still open - but no go! Then we went to The Windmill, also in Penn Yann. I have never been there. I loved all the homemade treats and fresh produce they had to offer. We were there at closing time, so we were able to get our pumpkins and mums at a GREAT price! I got some mini pumpkins for my pumpkin chandelier project (coming soon!) and Josh got a fishing sign for his (our) dream lake house we hope to have someday. I also got a fun Halloween sign that I'll share when I finish decorating (yes...I'm slow..). We then went to get new windows for our bedroom - it is getting cold and we must replace the one Danny jumped out of! Then...the moment he'd been waiting for all day (as we walked around The Windmill and he pretended to have fun for my sake...) BASS PRO in Auburn. He spent his bday money and gift cards and came home with a smile. We enjoyed gourmet Pizza Hut leftovers for dinner that made me ill and watched a movie that I don't recommend. I love scary movies, but 1408 is NOT SCARY, nor is it enjoyable. All in all, I'd say it was a good day!

Here are some more pictures of the Windmill and of our drive through the finger lakes. The lake you see in the picture is Seneca Lake. Isn't it beautiful? I wish I could have captured the colors better, but it was pretty gloomy outside.

Hi Sondra, I loved Windmill too. Great winey grapes. We were disappointed in BassPro. What did you think? Nice but not earthshattering...Boy has the weather changed. My hands won't warm up until June! Vicki at Hollyhocks
