Family time


Between Noel and I being involved in a big project over the past couple of weeks, and him being gone out of town a lot, we've been seriously lacking good, quality family time.  This past Saturday, the four of us were able to go to brunch together, and it was so nice.  I often wonder what it would be like to spend every Saturday as a family of four, but me and the babies will take what we can get!

Also, can we talk about my taste buds for a second?  Most adults choose an omelette or something along those lines for brunch.  But I can never pass up pancakes.  Never.  And I have to order some good ol' Southern cookin' grits to go with it.  As soon as the plate hits my table I mush all of it together. Grits, pancakes, and eggs all in one bite...mmmm.  

I hope you were able to have a great weekend and enjoy this beautiful weather!

Linking up with Sami.

We LOVE doing brunch and need to more often! I can never pass up French Toast especially with Chocolate milk :) I don't think thats much better than pancakes so at least you are not alone!! Your family is just adorable!!

Southern food is by far the best! I've never enjoyed food so much until I moved to the "South". I'm glad you enjoyed your warm weekend, we barely hit 55 over here:(

I always get grits. Always. And bacon. I got to have some one on one time with my 4 year old on Saturday and it was fun. Much needed.

Robin said...

You are never too adult for any food...one of the best parts about leaving our parents' houses is being able to eat whatever we want!
(Of course, we usually have to start worrying about metabolism and weight gain by then. Such is the cruel irony of life.)

Kirsten Wiemer said...

i definitely eat childrens food always.
also i love your dress!

I LOVE Brigs!! and now I'm craving breakfast! I'm so glad you guys were able to spend time together on a Saturday. and where is your dress from?!

Care said...

Family times the best!
I think about 9 or 10 adjectives came to my head when I saw your dress... including- adorable, sweet, darling... ect.
Totally with you on the pancakes! Count me in:)
Hope you enjoyed the sunny weekend!!

Emmy said...

Okay I was all with you on the pancake thing, until you said you mush it all together-- guess I like my food a little more separate. :)

rooth said...

Mmm mmm, grits with lotsa butter and cheese will do it for me every time

Misty B said...

You are such a handsome family! Hey, your hair looks so pretty! It looks like you have a portion pulled into a side clip. What do you use for the clip? Sometimes my hair is to heavy for a bobby pin. Is that what you use?

Colleen said...
