On Wednesday, we made plans as a family to wake up early to get breakfast. There were several famous pancake spots, but for whatever reason, we decided to go to Crockett’s Breakfast Camp and I am glad we did. They were known for their giant cinnamon rolls, which for many in our party beat out pancakes. We could smell the bacon as we walked down the street to the restaurant. We were a party of 15 so we did have to wait a little bit to be seated. During that time, most of us had time to decide what we wanted and change our minds several times. I like to create my own breakfast options, as I am not able to eat eggs, and I went with bacon, grits, and a giant cinnamon roll. We ended up with several people ordering giant skillets of food, some ordering pancakes and other breakfast delights, and so many cinnamon rolls. They were some of the best cinnamon rolls I’ve every had and certainly the largest. They also tasted great the next day as leftovers.
After breakfast, I headed to the outlet mall with Sallie and Teresa to check out the Kate Spade outlet for a new work bag and to Chico’s to see a cute dress that Mom thought I should try. I ended up with a cute bag and dress without spending much money at all. Part of the gang checked out a visitor center and got to stop and look at some views. They also met up with my Great Aunt Sally and Bill, who visited with us that day.
We spent most of the day visiting with Sally and Bill on the porch, which was the perfect size and had tons of rockers for us to enjoy.
We borrowed Sally and Bill to get some shots of the whole family, including flat Brendan, who wasn’t able to join us on our trip because he had a big test to study for. It’s also fun to point out that all 4 (present) cousins are sitting at approximately the same height. I look like I am only a little bit shorter than the others who all sit at about the same height. In reality, Katie and I are almost exactly the same height with Jared and Bryan standing 6-8 inches taller than us. It just goes to show which cousins have the “Edwards legs” and which do not.
While we were a little bit late, we took this opportunity to sing “happy birthday” and celebrate PopPop’s 80th birthday!
We ended the evening playing Tenzies, a fun dice game. It was fun teaching everyone a game that was pretty easy to understand and play. Bryan won a lot and made sure that none of the rest of cheated. We took it easy on the rest of the family and decided not to make it a drinking game like we did in Destin.
