of Birthdays and Bunnies (and beers)

#2 son enjoyed another birthday meal at Plucker's

He got a new action cam to create content for his youtube channel, and lego robotics stuffs.

He organized and hosted his own party at home with his friends. I did survive two hours of screaming kids running about. They seemed to have fun.

The check engine light came on in our X5 35d. It spent a couple days at the shop. They informed me I had been taking too many short trips (5-20km), and the emission system needs an opportunity to heat up, and cool down. The short version was, the car needed a road trip. They offered a service to manually heat/cool the engine for almost $300, I opted to do it myself. So the kids and I took a road trip on Good Friday. The car is a lot like me, it NEEDS to get out of town every so often.

We drove down to check on our place at the Blanco River. It was a Good Friday indeed. The daughter brought her sketch pad, #1 son found a nice rock to lay upon. #2 son played with his new camera, and I enjoyed something from Civil Society.

I ran into the Easter Bunny at Suds Monkey

Suds Monkey hosted an Easter Glow Egg hunt. They had expected a couple hundred people to attend. They had thousands show up for the free event.  It was chaotic, but #2 son did get in on the hunt and he left happy.

austin beer festival stubb's 2018 VIP 

We attended a "beer and music festival" with friends. We had "VIP" tickets. The status allowed entry an hour earlier than regular ticket holders. I don't believe there were any regular ticket holders, there were THOUSANDS of VIP. I'd suggest skipping this event in the future.

I found Fiddleheads and fresh Morel Mushrooms! I made them for Easter dinner and Kat really enjoyed them.

Kat and I hit the Hike and Bike trail and made a big loop around Town Lake/ Ladybird Lake. Ten miles was a good ride.
