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.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

I went to the monthly North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy council meeting w hile Brooke, Meadow and her friend Morgan went kayaking.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
