Yea!! It’s Easter! And that means that I can actually eat the chocolate malt Easter eggs and not feel guilty about it.
Now granted – I’ve been eating the eggs, well OK only one bag so far.. and I did feel a little guilty about it. But now that it’s officially Easter – let the party begin! The only problem that I’ve got is that the Easter bunny only brought one new bag of these eggs and I’m thinking since it was in William’s Easter basket, it’s probably his. Maybe I can find some in town tomorrow on sale
Easter mass for our church was Sunday at 10:00 and I think because it was Easter, it seemed a little longer than normal. So about half way through the mass I was looking around and wondering just how many hams did you think were in the ovens? As you can tell my mind wonders some when I’m supposed to be listening to the sermon. My guess? A LOT! And did we have one in our oven – you bet!
After mass and once we opened the front door to our house that familiar smell of a ham cooking in the oven just hits you! Now granted our family likes ham, but tell me honestly when you walk into a home and smell a warm ham in the oven it just doesn’t make you smile. We had a very good traditional Easter meal: Ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, and a fluffy salad.
With our bellies full, I wanted to catch William quick before he headed back to his apartment and have him help put up the new sign for the Roadhouse. You might remember that I got it for my birthday back in February and we haven’t had much chance to get it hung up yet.
Happy Birthday to me!
So the afternoon was beautiful weather and it was time to get it hung up. Here is the progression on how it went ~
First things first, where should it go
Let’s double check it before it’s secured on the wall
Then let’s get it hung up
Finally, it looks awesome!
After the guys got it hung up, we were able to spend some time Skyping with with Kyle and Kelcie in New York. Then William had to head back south to his apartment to get ready for the week ahead.
But for Daryl and I the day was still young so we got out the Chevelle and shined her up for the first ride of the spring. And what better place to go then to head to Decorah to the Whippy Dip. Now if you’re not from this area and are unfamiliar about what the ‘Whippy Dip’ actually is, let me tell you. It’s a very small store that is very well known for it’s ice cream. That could be the cones, malts, sundaes, anything ice cream! They also sell easy sandwiches, but not too many people might know that. While we were waiting in line, I started to count the amount of people either waiting to order food, just hanging out with their food, or just kinda hanging out. Guess how many people on an average were at this little ice cream shop while we were there? An average of 40 people. Yes, 40 people! We waited in line for about a half hour to get our things we ordered and I was thinking if I don’t get my order from any fast food chain in let’s say 3 minutes I wonder if they have to kill the cow to make the hamburger. But for some reason waiting 30 minutes to order an ice cream cone is, well everyone is more than OK with that. It’s just how you roll when you’re at the Whippy Dip.
Hanging out with a lot of other people eating ice cream!
After stopping in at some friends house on the way home, it was time to put the Chevelle away for the night and we’re hoping that the summer will let us go for more rides than we did last year.
The picture of the day is an Easter basket that I had made. Isn’t Easter great?
