Easter, Etc.

on April 3, 2018

Hey, folks! How’s it going??

I was planning to pop in yesterday, but our internet was down ALL day. We had some insane winds, so I am guessing that had something to do with it.

But, anyways, how was your Easter?? Did you have a lovely weekend? Kind of strange having Easter on April 1st? We just let that one go by the wayside in our house.

On Friday, Brooke spotted this guy just after Ken left for work. Glad to see that he is well fed!

On Saturday, Ken left the house around 7:45 am to get started on his ride for the day. It was cloudy and chilly and the threat of snow felt present in the air. He is a tough cookie.

Brooke and I played around the house before it was time to get dressed and head to an Easter Egg Hunt. North Routt puts on quite a Easter Eggstravaganza 😉

Ken met us at Vista Verde Ranch around 10:45 am. We had a lovely pancake breakfast before venturing outside to do some exploring. The fire truck was a big hit.

And the helicopter did not disappoint either.

Such a teenager already.

Brooke and her little bestie.

Before we knew it, it was time to let them loose.

The 4 year olds were in with 5, 6, 7 and 8 year olds and the age differences were evident. Those big kids are intense! Brooke found a nice little stash of eggs.

She loaded up about 20 eggs while her little buddy, Bright only ended up with 1. Being the Brooke that she is, she put about 10 of her eggs in Bright’s basket and then my heart exploded. So very sweet.

Once the hunt was over, we headed back home. I had a long run on the books, so the second latte with a side of cookie dunkers was probably not the BEST idea…but hey, at least they didnt suck to taste a second time 😉

The wind was pretty much horrible and would have meant running uphill into a headwind on the way home, so I cheated and my sweetest family let me run 82% of my run with a (mostly) tailwind.

Miles 1-9 were awesome, but that last mile was a mix of headwind/uphill/sore knees. But I was super happy with the first 9 😉

Once the fam picked me up, we made the quick drive back home. Ken worked on some projects while Brooke and I did some egg coloring. We used the shaving cream method and it was awesome!

Jasper got in some good playtime, so he was more than happy for some relax time!

A dip in the hot tub and some dinner and EVERYONE was ready for bed.

On Sunday, the morning started with a search for Easter baskets. Brooke found hers before I even made it out of bed. Geesh!

We had a lovely breakfast whilst watching the Tour of Flanders before heading to Church.

Church had a second Egg Hunt and the kids were not sad about it! Also, brunch. Yum.

When we got home, I headed out for an 18 mile ride OUTSIDE and even though it was windy, it was amazing. Got home and Ken went out for about 2 hours. We had an early dinner before another trip to the hot tub.

Where is all of the snow going?!?!

Our Monday was filled with a trip to the pool and grocery. Spent most of the afternoon cleaning before hoping on the treadmill for 2 easy recovery miles. Ken had a buddy over to do some work on his snow mobile, so it was an impromptu dinner party.

Today, we have been super lazy! I hung some coat racks in our bedroom and have done a bunch of chores, but things just feel like they are moving slow. Ken has a group ride tonight and I need to get my booty in gear and get my run done (switching my run/bike workouts with tomorrow). Hoping for a 6+ mile progression run on the treadmill….need some motivation!

This has me cracking up….she asked if I wore a mask when I changed her diapers because they smelled! hahahahha.

Should be some fun stuff coming up in the next 2 days. Cant wait to share with you! For now….going to put on running clothes so I dont blow it off!
