Spring is here!!!

Today is daylight savings day and we lose an hour of sleep.  We didn't let that keep us from enjoying this beautiful spring day.  It hit close to 50 degrees here in Minnesota so we ventured out to enjoy the day.

We took the kids over to Nine Mile Creek in Bloomington to go for a short hike.  K had to roll up his pants so he wouldn't get them dirty.

The creek was partly frozen but still beautiful.

It is a great hike along this path year round.

I am a huge fan of nature and try to get out and enjoy it whenever I can.

After lunch we had to drop K off at church for their nerf war so we took the 2 little ones on a bike ride.  Z was not thrilled to have to wear a helmet.

She was even more mad when we strapped her in the trailer.

Once we got going she calmed right down and enjoyed the ride or so we thought...

I have no clue how she could sleep like this.  I guess the trailer is like her carseat and puts her right to sleep once she starts moving lol.

We stopped at a neat old cemetery on our ride and saw this in the far corner of it and G and I had to wander out to see what it was.

Yup it is seriously a grave marker.  When I die I want something cool like this to mark my spot too.

We ended our day making some Chocolate Ribbon Bars.

By we I mean I sat and knitted while D and G made them.  Ok Z helped a little too.

G just likes to work with others.   

They turned out ok.  They are a little crumbly but they tasted good.

What did you do this weekend?


  1. We got to attend a Harlem Globetrotters game this past weekend. Your hike looks like a lot of fun. Here in Colorado I think it is still a bit chilly for hiking but it will be warm enough later in the week. #HomeMattersParty

    1. I just love to get the kids outside in the fresh air

  2. That's a neat grave marker! Love seeing signs of spring, thanks for sharing.
