Easter 2021

I’m still playing catch up on posts so nothing says delayed like an Easter post in May right?

With two boys life is a little crazy, but I love it. Everything is just so much livelier and happy, but with that comes a lot of things that are put on the backburner, including updating my blog and my floors that only get mopped twice a week these days. So without further ado the Easter post.

We started our Easter weekend with some fun Easter themed work activities for Arren. Out of all the holidays Arren’s favorite is Easter, he prefers it over Christmas, there is just something about a bunny, eggs and Jesus’s resurrection that makes this boy really excited, throw in an Easter egg hunt and some yummy treats and you know it’s going to be a good time.

Even though Asher is too little for the activities he was pretty content with his Easter bunny and proceeded to try and bite his head off, soon after Easter we noticed he was starting teething, two babies that started teething at 4 months, we deserve a prize or something.

with covid restrictions still in effect this year’s Easter looked just as grim as last year, this year even all the Polish people seemed over it, so many people were going for walks in their sweats, instead of nice outfits, no church and a lot of glum looking faces as Easter was toned down for the second year.

I decided to make the best of it and gave Arren a weekend Easter egg hunt with map included, the map was a nice touch for him and we were pretty shocked to see Arren really understanding how to use a map an finding all of his treats really fast.

We started are morining of with pumpkin bunny cinnamon rolls, which I prepped the night before, I started really strong and had so many plans for a feast for easter, but after making dinner rolls, and only having a couple we filed up to much and were too full to make a full feast.

Dinner rolls and lemon squares make a perfect feast for year two of a covid Easter.

Hopefully next year will be a different Easter.

Gdansk at night

One of the best things about living in Gdansk is the safety, it’s something we are not really used to coming from South Africa. Walking around the beach in the middle of the night is a freedom that we all love.

Having Arren be able to freely play, run and explore is a blessing.

Seeing the Baltic sea, surrounded by forest is a magical sight, you can almost see the vikings coming over if you imagine hard enough

Everywhere you look you can see little memories that we’re still in a pandemic, from the masks on the beach to the keep your distance stickers on everything.

but, the playground is always at 10% full when its under 10C the Polish people really seem to hate the cold, we don’t mind as long as there isn’t a deep layer of snow Arren is always ready to go.

Soon we will long for night to actually come, when it seems like an endless day, that never ends during the Polish Summer and we will be longing for the leaves to start falling.
