Pumpkin Fun

Instead of carving a pumpkin this year, I decided to paint on the design this year instead.
I came to this decision after the pumpkin I carved last year rotted out in only a few days. Bummer!

Here's the pumpkin in its original state, plus my inspiration for its decoration:



After cutting out and tracing a pattern that I got for free online and a few coats of acrylic paint:



"I'm Chef, and I approve this pumpkin."

Tulsa State Fair 2008

On Thursday, Brendan and I went to the Tulsa State Fair! This is a pretty big night-out for us, since we're sort of stingy, homebodies. :)

The three main attractions we were interested in were The Big Cat Adventures, the petting zoo, and the .38 Special concert. Despite having to drive around for over an hour trying to find a parking space, we managed to catch all three.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy:


I got to pet this precious baby lynx at the Big Cat Adventures!

Emu at the petting zoo! He was so friendly and let me pet him for a long time.

This giraffe was gorgeous.

Apparently this sheep is supposed to have four horns. Crazy.

And a small video of the concert:
