When we left home early that morning, we had the intentions of it being a pretty and warm day. Boy, were we wrong. By the time we arrived in Glendale, it was freezing due to the wind and looked almost as if it was going to rain. Thankfully, I had enough items to bundle up the kiddos but purchased Charli a hat just to help her stay warm.
We stopped in a town north of us to have breakfast at cracker barrel. If you know me, I love good country cooking and cracker barrel never fails me. But sadly, my past two experiences there have not been so pleasant. The first time my waiter was terribly rude to the kids and I. He ended up walking out after taking our order. This time I was just not a ran of their apple strusel french toast like I was last year. You win some and loose some though, right?
We were able to find so many goodies while we made our way through the crowds. My Mom purchased a ring, necklace and a watch that is made out of old type writer keys. I ordered Bryar a wooden puzzle that has his name and dinosaurs for a Christmas present. Bryar also got some great toddler bibs and Charli hairbows that were great prices!
But I thought I was going to sadly loose my ever loving mind when our waitress told us that they were out of banana pie. Ah! The world could have ended in that very moment and I would not have known. Bless my food loving heart, that pie is my favorite and the last two times we have made the trip there they have been out. But thankfully, their open faced roast beef made up for it.
Hopefully, next year it will be prettier but for this year it was the perfect trip and day to spend with Nana!
