Spring Break & Easter

We had “Spring Break” last week even though we were supposed to be ‘in school’ all week too. Whatevs. We made it to the land last week on a beautiful day.  Note: Don’t forget to bring a bag of snacks ON the walk because 5 year old may die of starvation.
We walked the trails, checked the cams and the kids love climbing the tree.

I can’t get over how cool the pictures of the animals are from the trail cams.  Look how many were chillin in this photo?

While I have no idea what the future holds, I do love it here.  It’s nice to have our own private park to visit especially during this time.

I will say we used Scavenger hunt that Brooke’s school sent in an e-mail to do as ‘classwork.”  Both kids loved looking for all of these!

We may have had a Happy Hour…or two.

Easter was really low key.  We enjoyed these delicious and colorful eggs from my dear acupuncturist! How gorgeous are they?

Brooke dyed some eggs–these were actually fake! My sister brought some over. Bradley wanted nothing to do with it, so we just did them. Now I can save them for next year too! 

Since we didn’t have any place we COULD go Sunday, I had fun baking in the kitchen! I made some really good banana chocolate chip bars with chick peas—yes really! Kids loved them and I did too!! (Gluten Free)

Throw everything in the blender/food processor and you’re good to go.

Definitely check out the recipe here!! 

They are delicious warmed up and enjoyed with a chai latté.

I also made these oldie but goodie Vanilla Cupcakes from scratch.  I love that these only make 12, and they are dense/thick but still light and fluffy. NOT Gluten Free, but everyone else seemed to love them.  I used to love them too!  Recipe here on my old blog.

My Dad and step mom stopped by to wave from a distance.  We stayed far away but it was still nice to see them in person!

Later that day I sat on the back deck and did some planning…and the sun came out! It literally felt like Summer is so near.  I am ready! It was a blessed day. 

This week we have been getting back into the swing of Google/Zoom classrooms and staying more focused on school work.
