Easter & Wedding

We visited Saint Louis to spend Easter holiday with family and attended friend's wedding.
Abby and I had a train trip to Springfield, IL and walked around tourist spots in the downtown.
Sola enjoyed seeing animals including sea lion and rode a train at the zoo.
It was a wonderful week!

A playground in Georgetown was full of children due to the nice weather.
Sola enjoyed climbing a rock wall and going down a slide.
We are visiting family and friends in Saint Louis next week.

Portable keyboard

I bought a portable keyboard for my android tablet.
This device makes it easier for me to type.
It was only $19.99 with good reviews.                                                                                                                                                                          

Mashed potatoes

Abby made 4 cups of mashed potatoes for dinner.
That was for Sola and I.
However, Sola ate about 3/4 of the dish.
I am glad I had rice as a backup.

Courtyard by Marriott

We stayed at this hotel during AJ's birthday party.
3 star hotel usually provides better facilities but does not incude complimentary breakfast.
Even coffee in the lobby area is additional charge.
We would not stay again unless there is a great deal with the price.
It was only $63 per night with advance purchase.


Abby and I both agreed that Barilla is a brand we would like to have.
Today, we had thin spaghetti-veggie for the first time.
This pasta contains zucchini and spinach.
It was not only delicious but healthy.

Gas price

Surprisingly, Macomb had the lowest gas price in the state of Illinois last weekend.
While $3.89 per gallon around Schamburg, it was only $3.39 per gallon.
I do not know why but surely got a full tank.
Price went up to twenty cents couple days later.
