Tried a different Thai restaurant today



My daughter and I decided to try a different Thai restaurant tonight using a coupon from the Entertainment book. We went to the Thai House Depew. We were worried at first as it didn't look like much from the outside, but once we got inside it was nicely decorated and the food was very good. I had my usual Pad Thai, Jennifer tried the sesame chicken. Of course we had the Thai iced tea, our favorite. We even have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Day trip to Fairport and Pittsford

Thursday I headed to Pittsford and Fairport with my daughter and youngest son to do some research for an upcoming article. We had a nice time browsing all the shops and the weather was perfect. We had lunch at the Towpath Café in Fairport and sat on the covered patio where we could watch the lift bridge over the canal in operation.

Getaway weekend to Erie, PA

Last weekend we went on a getaway weekend to Erie, PA, mainly because I had gotten passes to Splash Lagoon and had to use them by the end of June. The kids had a great time there. In addition to Splash Lagoon, we went to Waldameer Amusement Park, explored the Erie waterfront and went to the Erie Maritime Museum. It was a nice trip from the Buffalo area, as it only takes about 90 minutes to get there.

Exploring Williamsville

My daughter and I visited Williamsville today to do some research for an article I'm putting together for Forever Young Magazine. There is a lot to see and do....you'll have to wait to read the article in a few months. One of the places we checked out was Monarch, which carries jewelry and accessories. Almost all the jewelry was $10!!! And it was nice!
