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.

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in.

I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it.

School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class.
