It's been awhile since I have posted anything on the blog.  October has been a busy month.  I was lucky enough to meet up with Jake's family in NYC for a couple of days.  Unfortunately, Jake couldn't come with us...darn Midterms.  I missed him dearly, but I also had a wonderful time.  I loved everything we did, but I must say that I was blown away by Lion King on Broadway.  It brought me back to my African Dancing days at Weber.  Good times.  The rest of the pics are some odds and ends of what we have been up to in October.

Here we are on the commuter train on our way to the Blaze.  The Blaze was an awesome event, which I believe is in the town of Salem outside of New York, with tons of lit carved pumpkins.  My camera couldn't do everything justice, so I didn't take any and therefore don't have any of my own pictures to document it, but just believe me when I say that it was really cool.

The famous chocolate cake sundae from Serendipity.  I was skeptical if this would be good.  Often times I find that the more you get of something at a restaurant, the worse it tastes, but that was NOT the case in this instance.  It was amazing.

Our walk across the Brooklyn bridge.  This was definitely cool.

The 911 monument. 

After seeing Lion King, us poor girls were a little tired and due to the fact that each of us were wearing heels, we didn't exactly like the idea of walking through the city to visit Carnegie deli, so we enjoyed a pleasant ride in a bike cart pulled along by this guy.

We are SO happy not be walking.

Tom didn't quite make it through all of this corned beef, but I was still pretty impressed.

So, after New York, the rest of the month was pretty low-key.  People in Buffalo seem to really love inflated lawn displays.  This is the most extravagant one I have seen yet.  The pictures really don't do it justice. 

...and here we are carving our pumpkins...

Jake is such a man that he is OK wearing pink cupcakes.

The finished product.  The one on the left is supposed to be a "Jake" pumpkin.

Happy Late Halloween everyone!  Hopefully, I'll get to posting our Thanksgiving before the end of December.
