A day in our life....

Look how fast DEEDS is growing UP !
She's 10, the youngest of our 10 grandloves....
 and having such a great summer.
How we love it when she comes over to spend the night.
She spent the night with us and we three had an early morning walk at the park.
I said, "Deeds, can you walk a mile ?"
She said, "Memaw, I can RUN a mile."
"OoOOO"
When we finished our glorious walk, we were hungry....
STARVED....
We called the mama and the sister and asked if they would meet us at
CRACKER BARREL for breakfast.
"YES"  was the answer
so we sit on the porch of the restaurant and played a game of
GIANT CHECKERS
while waiting for the other two ladies.
(in case you noticed the 'hair in the eyes" in my photos...the wind was blowin' ....
I generally don't have it hanging below my eyebrows... :))
A little sleepy yet but
as soon as they served our breakfast,
everyone perked up.
We had almost completely finished eating  before I thought about taking photos of the food.
We ALL should have had that YOGURT PARFAIT....it looked delish....
but, we caved and went for those fabulous BUTTERMILK  PANCAKES...
*shhhhh, don't let the DIET PATROL know we slid off the ole NO SUGAR thing.
and....
OH....
it was all sooo good...especially so with our sweet girls there with us.
P.S.  Mr. Sweet and I came back home and had an hour nap.
THAT'S OUR JOB....
Don't forget the giveaway of the RAMSIGN HOUSE NUMBERS SIGN...
Ends on the 25th........WINNER announced on the 26th.

Ten is such a great age! I love Cracker Barrel, especially for breakfast. xo

Vee said...

Cracker Barrel! Yay. Love that place. Just took John there last weekend and we had a Southern meal that you would've been proud to know we'd ordered. It was pulled bbq pork on a fritter (pancake) with fries, cornbread (not sweet like I like it) and iced tea. It was really good. We'll go back some day. Plus it's just fun to poke around in the store or sit and play checkers. It gives me hope that Deeds, at ten, still enjoys hanging out with her grandparents. She's a real cutie!

I love the photo of them walking, accompanied by their shadows. :)

Such a nice way to spend a morning - and what a treat to have a grandchild to spend the night!

Ralph said...

Forget the foodie police - with your wonderful granddaughter and you at the Cracker Barrel for a great breakfast and time together. I won't tell - the time was very special no doubt...good food and even greater company!

Oh that Deeds is getting big! It's kind of like we have watched her growing up, in your blog. :-)))))

She always looks so sweet and happy and willing to have her picture taken, too. :-)

You have a beautiful granddaughter there. Just beautiful! I'm glad you had an opportunity to spend some time with you. And you didn't mention who won that checker's game. What happened? Did she beat you?

I promise not to tell the Diet Patrol. How fun for you and your husband to have breakfast with your sweet girls.

Cracker Barrel always has lots of other pretties to see, too.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Oh what great photos! I hope to live close enough to my grand to enjoy times like these! Hugs, Linda

The Boston Lady said...

What a lovely way to spend a morning. I love that you have your granddaughter spend the night with you - such good memories she will have as she gets older. Is there nothing better than breakfast at Cracker Barrel? I love their "eggs in a basket" and get them ever time. Glad I stopped by. Ann

AshTreeCottage said...

Deeds is just lovely! I so fondly remember staying with my grandma and grandpa. What special relationships we share with our grandparents. I am glad that you are sharing those precious moments together. Now about that breakfast ~ who doesn't love Cracker Barrel??!!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

Darling grandsies! You are the best grandma, taking them out to Cracker Barrel, yum! Have a wonderful weekend BJ!
xo, Andrea

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

You are such a wonderful grandma. The kind I want to be. Involved and there for my kids and grandkids. Sounds like a perfect morning to me. We love going out to breakfast. Hubby and I do that more than going out for dinner. I really want you to know how much I appreciate you taking the time to join the party. Have a wonderful week.

Deeds may be the youngest, but she makes great shadows!

Fondly,

Snap said...

Gosh. Ten years old ... what an adventure she has in her future! I can't remember back that far, but I do love Cracker Barrel!!!!

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

She really has grown up just in the time I have "known" you! Look at those legs...she is becoming a young woman and she is too darn cute! Cracker Barrel is our "I don't want to cook" go to place. It is just a hop skip from our house...too easy!

Madge Bloom said...

What a sweet time with her, how lucky you are! Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #36!

This is such a sweet post BJ! My parents are looking forward to having their 4 grandsons over for a sleepover this week (there's a football final happening!) so I know my mum would really relate to this!
