Snow Day Continued

So that was a lot of snow!  Thankfully it is already melting today.  Yesterday, I thought it would be fun to walk to Schnucks to pick stuff up for dinner.  My thought was- a beautiful walk in the crisp, newly fallen snow- I tried to talk Max and Ben into walking with me and both declined.  I thought I had Ben convinced but no luck.  Then I decided to see if our sitter could come over and watch the kids so Char and I could go.  She came over and we headed out- the first few minutes weren't horrible but the wind picked up and it started to snow harder and it was more like sleet and it was terrible and I got all whiney.  So we made it to the turn around by Target and headed back home and got the car.  Much better idea!

We stopped at Duffys for a drink and an appetizer.  Now, that was a nice was to spend an hour on a snowy day!

We came home and put dinner together for the kids which included homemade bread, yum!  Max asked if I would make homemade bread the next time he has a friend over because it smells so good.  That is one sweet boy!  Then Char made fish tacos and they were absolutely delicious.  I could eat those multiple times a week.  

Picture is way to dark but our fish taco dinner was not only delicious, the table looked beautiful too :)

Today the kids and I shoveled Ann and Steve's driveway.  In thanks, they had us over for Imos for dinner.  It was a really nice visit.  The kids tried to solve Steve's riddles and Ann and I caught up on some family stuff.  I had recently been thinking how I'd love to be part of a Sader and today is the first day of Passover.  Ann told us a little bit about how they use to celebrate the Sader in her family.  They would do things like recreate the 10 plagues or some of them at least.  They would throw cotton balls to imitate hail.   I was amazed how much Ben and Max knew about Passover and were able to contribute to the conversation.  Their religion classes are more like History classes at school which I love.  

Now, finally, Spring Break is coming to an end.  Maura has been home for 17 days!  That girl is ready to be back at school.  I think I'm ready for some regular rhythm to our week, at least until it gets warm and Summer arrives!  Bring on the change of seasons- I desperately need it!!!
