Statue of Liberty…hey wait a minute!

On my way to see a Penn State game when I look out of the car window and what do I see?  The Statue of Liberty!  Am I lost?  Did I take a wrong turn?  No.  And I am not seeing things either.

Pennsylvania

Someone erected a replica of the Statue of Liberty in the lake along the highway going towards State College, Pennsylvania.  Surprised I should say, but also kinda funny and pretty cool.  Sorry the shots aren’t great.  There was no place to pull over to get a better view.

Here are some other photos from my trip including Mount Nittany.

Carnival Cruise Animals

Despite the recent cruise ship mishaps in Italy and the Gulf of Mexico, we had a great time on a Carnival cruise a couple of years back.  They even made an animal for us each day out of a bath towel.  Each day when we returned to our room, a new and interesting animal magically appeared on our bed.  Can you guess what they are?

Besides granting time off from school or work, a snow day often means endless adventures filled with indoor and outdoor fun for the whole family. While some enjoy delicious soup, great movies and perhaps a cup of hot chocolate, many of us love to step out among the white winter snow to put our imaginative minds to work.  From creatively sculptured mounds of snow to classic carrot-nosed, stick-armed snowmen, there’s something greatly rewarding about creating a masterpiece made of snow…even though we know it won’t last long. Check out these photos of some of the most amazing and awesome snowmen that we’ve ever seen!
