Easter at the Ballpark

As the girls get older, their baskets look smaller!

This Easter was a little different than in the past.  We started the day in the traditional way.  The girls found their Easter baskets, ate some candy and then ran off to play their newest Xbox & DS games while Nate and I read the paper and enjoyed some coffee. Then it was time for brunch.  Nate found a recipe in the Star Tribune newspaper this week that he really wanted to try.  It was for an Egg Roulade and Asparagus brunch.   He’s never made a “roulade” before but it looked like a large omelet rolled up.  He whipped the eggs so they were light and fluffy and spread the egg mixture onto a cookie sheet.  Baked it for a little time,  then placed  ham and cheddar cheese on the top before rolling it into the spiral and putting back into the oven to melt the cheese and warm the ham.   It was fabulous!!   Take a look.

Nate carefully rolls the egg.

Beautifully displayed on the plate!

After brunch, we headed out to the Twins game.  What a beautiful day to sit outside and enjoy a baseball game.  It was sunny and 60 degrees.  We enjoyed the fresh air and the sounds of happy people everywhere.  The vendors were funny today.  They would call out things like, “Get your Easter beer here!”,  “Easter dinner here!” (hot dogs) and they even had an Easter Cam up on the scoreboard where they would put peoples faces on it with bunny ears.  Very cute and lots of family fun today.

We got our tickets through our neighbor this year.  They were great seats!  Right down on the lower level and fourteen rows up out in right field.  Last year we sat over near third base, so it was fun to see the other side of the park and enjoy the game from that view.  We loved it and best of all, the Twins won!  They beat the Cleveland Indians 4-3.

We're so close! Foul ball territory...scary.

So that was our “non-traditional” Easter this year but we sure had a lot of fun.  I hope you had a great day and Happy Easter!



  1. Oops, now I see it on the plate. Thought it was supposed to be rolled into the roulade. My bad:(
