Easter 2019 ~ The Annual Easter Cake ~

Easter 2019
Easter 2019 was a little different for us this year. Our extended family was traveling to visit other family. Our oldest son is finishing his training at Fort Gordon, Georgia. It was was just the three of us. That did not stop me from doing the Annual TePaske Easter Cake. 
One.. Two .. Three.. here it is.. 
We put a slice in the freezer for Sam to enjoy when he comes home.

I used Big Rigs 'n Lil' Cookies recipe Click here to find the recipe.
It was delicious, all three of us gave the frosting recipe a thumbs up. 

 We decided to do something different for Easter since it was just the three of us. We headed to the city. We went to  Como Park Zoo and Conservatory located in St. Paul, Minnesota.

I will do an On The Road Friday post with more photos of our adventure. 

 It was a lovely day. 70 degrees, sunshine and a slight breeze. As we walked in the park, a butterfly flew right in front of me and settled down on the trail we were walking. 
Happy Easter to you and Spring is here is what that butterfly was saying!

 Let's Go Fly a Kite
They are hard to pick out in my photo, I was using my phone camera. If you really peek, you can pick out three kites flying in the sky. Several people came to fly kites at the park.

 The Sunken Garden was all Spring!
It smelled so good in the Sunken Garden. It was just beautiful. 

 I hope you all had a lovely Easter Holiday.
