Masks, white pants, and feel-good food

Today, we ran some errands as a family and ended up at TJ Maxx. Pete found some masks from Ghana that had been marked down. We usually like to buy our masks when we are traveling, but we thought these would look great with the ones we already have. The two new masks are the one on the left and the middle one. The one on the right is from Africa, too.
We picked up this mask in Chichen itza in Mexico about 3 years ago.
Pete got this mask when he was doing research in Borneo.
And these masks are from Bali.
I guess the only mask I have been involved with picking out is the one from Mexico. I wonder if we will find any in Brazil?

I said we were running errands. We need a white outfit each (casual) for the dinner the night before the wedding. Does anyone know how difficult it is to find white pants for a man? We finally found some on Hooray for them.

For lunch, we ate at Baby's. It is a 1950s diner in State College. I don't know why we haven't been there before. It was so kid friendly and just an all-around-feel-good-place. We definitely will be going back. The milk shakes were to die for. They even have little juke boxes at your booth. I must remember to bring lots of quarters next time.

I used to collect thimbles, I should start again.

A chocolate milkshake sounds wonderful!
