Chickadee Thursday

Ready for Holy Thursday worship…we’re still worshipping in the basement of our church home away from home while they work on renovating their sanctuary, but Chickadee doesn’t mind!

Chickadee Thursday

Chickadee had fun visiting the National Blues Museum in St. Louis for the first time today!

After touring the museum, we walked around downtown St. Louis for a bit, and in addition to looking longingly through the gates of Busch Stadium, where the Cardinals were playing the Dodgers (the Cards won), we stopped at Kiener Plaza, where Chickadee had some fun on the playground:

It was a nice way to spend a spring day in the city!

Chickadee Thursday

Today’s “Chickadee Thursday” pictures are actually “Chickadee Wednesday” photos, and with good reason…we made our yearly visit to Rural King yesterday, and while we didn’t find bunnies for sale, we did discover that in the last year, the store has a acquired a mascot…Tate the Rabbit!

Did you know that you can put a leash on a rabbit and walk him around the store? I didn’t, but apparently, Tate enjoys it, and so we spent some time there, taking him for a…hop?

Chickadee loved how big he was, and how soft (and pink!) his ears were. He’s a good and patient rabbit for sure!

I really have to commend the gentleman who works at our local Rural King. For at least the last three or four years, he has been super kind and accommodating…he always takes time to talk to us about their animals (usually chicks and ducks in addition to bunnies), and finds time to let the children interact with the rabbits…he’s a true treasure!

Chickadee Thursday

We’re stuck inside (yet another ice day), so this week’s picture is from earlier in the week, when we stopped at Schnucks.

They’re remodeling what used to be a Shop ‘N’ Save location to look more like a Schnucks store, and Chickadee has been begging to take a picture with this standee for the last several weeks. I’m glad I finally got a shot, because there’s certainly not much going on at home today!

Chickadee Thursday

The children really want to play tennis this spring for PE. Even though it’s not spring yet, it was a little warmer today, and much drier, so we went to one of our park district’s courts to try it out. Chickadee discovered that hitting the ball is more difficult than she thought it would be, but she had a lot of fun trying!

Throwback (Chickadee) Thursday

I was flipping through my old Valentine’s Day blog posts this afternoon, and I came upon Chickadee’s first Valentine’s Day, which was also a (Chickadee) Thursday:

I’m not going to lie…when I look at that picture, and then look at the picture I shared of her today, I feel pretty old!
