Weekend Without Mom, Apr.4-5

Since I'm going to the Startup Weekend in SF, the kids will be without the mother. It lasts from Friday night to Sunday night. The longest my husband has been with the alone kids - five hours. I tried to plan a simple kind of a weekend for him to minimize stress (and with everything written out).

08:00-08:30 get up, get kids dressed
08:30-09:30 eat breakfast (pancakes & sour cream & jam), if extra time watch Russian Jungle Book
09:30-10:00 drive to Palo Alto Junior Museum
10:00-12:00 Explore Palo Alto Junior Museum
12:00-12:30 drive home
12:30-13:30 set table, eat lunch (turkey pot pie)
13:30-14:00 play outside in the garden with the ball ("soccer")
14:00-17:30 sleep, eat a snack (lean pockets in ziplock bag in freezer), play; if kids wake up before 16:30, go to Oakmont Produce to buy organic strawberries for dinner
17:30-18:00 drive to L.'s drawing class
18:00-19:00 class, walk with A. outside in the park
19:00-20:30 make pelmeni, set table, eat dinner, put kids in bed

SUNDAY, April 5
08:00-08:20 get up, get kids dressed
08:20-08:45 eat breakfast (waffles with yogurt)
08:45-09:00 prepare food to go
09:00-10:00 drive to Oakland Zoo
10:00-13:00 see the zoo, eat lunch
13:00-14:00 drive home
14:00-16:00 nap
16:00-18:15 snack (salami & cheese & cream cheese & bread); Ortega Park
18:00-18:30 drive home
18:30-19:00 dinner (stuffed cabbage)
