We had a great weekend celebrating Mother’s Day.  My mom came in from Cleveland, plus my sister was here from Oregon.  Some of the fun things we did:

  • Mom and I saw Star Trek.  Great movie, not unlike what Batman Begins did for the Batman series.  I really dig the fun new feel of Star Trek and already can’t wait for the sequel to come out.
  • We played On The Dot.  It’s a spacial thinking game where you have to line up the dots on clear plastic sheets to match a picture on a card.  There are only 4 dots per sheet and 4 total sheets, but it’s a lot harder than you’d think.  I did really well at first, then quickly lost the hang of it.
  • IMG_3849 Hiked down the escarpment with Mom and Jaime (Judi was gone to a wedding in Pittsburgh for Saturday afternoon/evening) to see Devils Hole.  It was a good climb with a nice payoff at the end.  There used to be water flowing through the cave into the Niagara River, but has been “dry” for quite some time.  I say “dry” because there’s still a tiny trickle that comes through the hole in the ceiling.
  • Played some Ticket to Ride and Imaginiff.  I won Ticket to Ride.  It was my only win for the weekend.  Jaime won most of the games we played.
  • Went to lunch at Applebee’s to celebrate Mother’s Day.  We waiting until Monday to avoid the crowds.
