A March Weekend

Yes, I fully realize it's April now, but this weekend happened back in March. The first weekend we were home from vacation actually. It was supposed to be a chill weekend, but of course, as soon as I plugged back into life after vacation, I lined up a string of projects. Luckily, I was able to do two things at the same time. I was able to check out Vegan Fest AND work the Des Moines Children's Museum booth at the same time. It wound up being a long day, but great networking all around (for both writing and the Museum).

The minis were around to "help" and play on and off throughout the day.

Some of my faves from Vegan Fest: acai bowl from Beef Cake Fuel (I also got a Hawaiian wrap later in the day that was amazing), sweets from Vegalicious, spring rolls, plantains, and coffee.  I have a good list of vegan/vegetarian friendly restaurants in the area that are quickly becoming my go-to places thanks to Vegan Fest.

I love watching kids play!

I left one project, only to come home and work on more. Luckily this one involved me writing in my pajamas and margaritas in my coffee mug (I'm classy like that). Clearly my husband was supportive.

The next day we tried out brunch at Granite City for the first (yum! But Americana is still our ultimate brunch spot) and took the kids to see the Easter Bunny.

I had to run to the craft store. The minis played outside (on a rare gorgeous day this spring). This was what I saw in the backup camera. I wasn't amused, but Hubs was pretty proud of himself!

 I know there's probably not going to be many of these pictures left to take (or that they'll allow us to take).

 The minis helped me create an Easter sensory bin for daycare. I love it when they help me out with daycare planning.

I left my phone on the dining room table. This was what was left for me on my screen. I shouldn't be surprised.
