weekend highlights

Hello, Bunnies! How has your week been so far? I know for most of you it's already the middle of the week. Me? I'm still trying to get back into our routine after a 3-day weekend (happy birthday, MLK!). Here are some of the highlights of our weekend that was filled to the brim.

We jumpstarted our Saturday with a relaxed brunch at D. Brian's deli where they serve food with all organic ingredients. After a healthy meal of soup and sandwich, we headed to the Minnesota Childrens Museum for an afternoon of discovery.

Bud finally got his cash register fix at the pretent grocery store.

He also manned the cash register at the mini restaurant, drove the bus, got wet and had his face painted.

After hours of exploring and playing, we parked ourselves at the mezzanine for some downtime and snacks.

On Sunday, we indulged in some traditional Italian food for dinner at Bucca Di Beppo after sweating it out at the community center. If you ever find yourself in Bucca Di Beppo, I highly recommend their Eggplant Parmigiana and Fried Calamari. Their food is just simply delicious - very flavorful. The place is family friendly too. In fact, you probably need to bring a big family to work on the huge portions of food.

This photo does not do justice to the mouth watering Margherita Pizza.

Monday afternoon we went sledding at Staring Lake to burn off the hearty Italian dinner we had the night before. We took turns climbing back up while pulling Bud on the sled. Oh my, it was quite a workout but seeing Bud's big smile as he was sledding down was worth every bead of sweat.

Today I allowed myself to take a break and rest. I joined Bud in his mid-day nap which extended to 3 hours! What can I say, I guess we were both tired from all the activities last weekend.

Here's to a great rest of the week!
