Per usual, I woke up at asscrack on Sunday. And again, per usual, the dog has raided the bed. For serious, the dang dog rules the roost. I almost lost an eye with this in my face:
Oh wait, you don’t see the danger in that picture? Lemme zoom out a bit and you’ll see what I mean..
Moving on. We had out Easter brunch at Canada Olympic Park. Remember- this place:
I filled up on fruit and eggs to get some healthy into my not-so healthy Easter.
Then came this plate. I don’t wanna talk about it
After we scarfed brunch, we headed over to the Calgary Zoo. Dude, there were tons of animals. I was gasping left and right because, well, large hairy animals up close and personal are kinda awesome. Enjoy the following pics
And that’s a dinosaur. (to my fellow Americans: no that’s not a real dinosaur. They don’t exist in Canada either. Wah wah)
Haha, I ate one of them the night before!
To clarify: that’s a Grizzly Bear butt.
Since the penguin exhibit was new, we had to wait in line for about an hour to see them. It was cool though, one ended up splashing us- that’s how close we got. Our total tour of the zoo took about 3 1/2 hours- a nice long walk to diffuse the monsterous brunch from earlier.
When we got home, we watched the 6th Harry Potter movie (argh, enough already!) and had Easter dinner with Joe, Twyla and her brother. I forgot to take pics of the food (I’m sure it just creeps people out anyway. Tyler is used to it by now) and I threw together these for dessert
They’re homemade honey cupcakes with buttercream icing, toasted coconut and Cadbury mini eggs.
I seriously need to go on a diet now.
Looks like u guys had fun!! I’m all about the mimosa brunch 🙂 The cupcakes look yummy too!
Haha yes! When we got the mimosas, I thought we were being ripped off because they were so orange, but they had quite a bit of the bubbly! 🙂
I bookmarked a recipe for cupcakes that look exactly like that — to make for Greek Easter NEXT weekend! Yum 🙂
