Coronavirus: Week 5 - Easter Etc.

Despite the coronavirus the Easter Bunny still came. Meadow had put a note on our door for the bunny that the baskets were by the front door. So then he wouldn't have to come into our place.



We don't want the Easter Bunny to spread the virus.
The Easter bunny did leave the baskets inside by our door.

Wow, he even knows Theo's name.

Meadow got a unicorn sleep mask, seaweed snacks, San Pellagrino, mango chips, Theo chocolate and jelly beans.




Theo got new cars for his race track, Theo chocolate, mango chips and Swedish Fish.


This race track is really fun and now we've got more cars.

Theo rushed over to help me make my grandma's Rhubarb cake.



The kids have started a band. We are missing celebrating Easter at Blake's new house this year.

But the kids still know how to have fun.

Meadow dressed Theo as a bunny.

Instead of coloring eggs we drew faces on them.

We had an Easter lunch. Fish tacos and the kids loved them.

It's our Easter at home tradition.

My dad called during dinner. The kids wanted to talk to him too.



We also drank the crowlers we picked up from Eastlake Brewery.


And had my Grandma's over sugary cake. 

We got a special delivery from Shannyn and the kids.

Then Meadow and I went out and enjoyed the late season snowstorm.

I know most people don't want snow in April, but I think there's nothing better.

Meanwhile, I caulked our bathroom. 

We're trying to potty train Theo, but he's not all that interested.

Taking a break.

Brooke used to make fun of me for escaping to the bedroom, but now she understands.

Our bedroom gets lots of natural light in the late afternoon. It's the best place to be.

We got some special bunny subs from Shannyn and Brent for our dinner.

Then we played pictionary with Chelsea and Nolan. 




It was much colder Easter week, but we eventually did get outside. By then most of the snow was gone.

Meadow took her American Girl doll out on a bike ride one evening.

I guess the open road is only for pedestrians and bikes still have to use the trails.

I don't get it, but I guess pedestrians need more space.

We ventured off the busier Lake Harriet path to Minnehaha Creek.

At the end of the week Meadow found some wood model kits. I helped her out by putting a helicopter together.


Then the kids insisted I make some crepes.

I like the color of our walls in our living area, but hate that if anything touches it it leaves a mark. I did a lot of touch up painting.

I also woke up to Theo's artwork. Did you know mayonaise takes off crayon on walls?

Ewww....I wish i didn't know that's how you cleaned it.

I'd love to strip the paint on our archway someday.

As soon as I turned my back the little stinker found a marker...

This time he cleans it up.




This week I made a Potato, Cheddar and Chive bread.

We are members at the Children's Museum and this weekend I had originally planned for us to do a day trip to Rochester to go to their museum as our membership works there too. At this time I don't see any trips to the children's museums in the near future.

Bike rides and walks are it for a while.

This kid can ride pretty fast when she wants to.

By the time we got back Meadow claimed she was still not tired. 

So we played some ball.

Marina's Twin Cities Birthday Weekend

Our niece Marina was turing 11 and had one request: a weekend in Minneapolis with her favorite cousin, Meadow. Marina made these masks for them. You know this cat lover was excited.  We walked over to Kiniko Kids and they had a Ghibli cookbook.  Meadow wanted this mushroom hat.  Since ice skating season ended early we still wanted to get one last skate in.  Theo tried out his new skates, which needed some adjustments.

Brittany's Babyshower

We traveled to Wisconsin again, this time for my sisters baby shower. Luckily I have Friday afternoons off so we could leave by noon. We also picked up Brittany along the way. My mom made us dinner when we arrived and during dinner I discovered a Christmas present that wasn't given to me. Super cute cloth napkins.  Mama Gail made what Brooke and her siblings dubbed "craperole." It was some kind of pasta bake. I actually liked it. Brittany and I had gotten our pajamas on not realizing we picked out the same outfit. I can't wait until my belly is as big as hers. My parents are giving Brittany their old changing table. Jaspurr thought it was his bed. I thought it was a new TV stand. My dad thought he needed a diaper change. Now he's all clean. The next morning my dad made sausage and eggs for breakfast. Us girls had packed up and left for the shower before Scott woke up. I had to run off to Mr. Mike's shop to photograp

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
