Stampede Breakfasts 2011



This morning we met up with D + M and their little girls.  It was really muggy out but seemed warm.  Unfortunately it started to sprinkle while we ate but it didn’t last long.  Little did we know what was about to happen.
The food was pretty good, we actually had the same eggs that Bonanza serves on Sundays back home.  It was like a trip down memory lane.  Finley didn’t eat much but Penelope sure did.  I bought Finley a new hat because she didn’t like the one we got her yesterday.  I figured since this one lit up and had a string she would wear it.  I was wrong.  She was obsessed last year with her hat but refuses to wear one this year.  What’s up with that?  Finley enjoyed all the balloons and loved the lady who was out there singing.
After breakfast, we headed down to the petting zoo.  The line up for pancakes was crazy long so we were happy we got there when we did because we didn’t have to wait at all.  The girls went in the zoo with D while I watched the strollers + Pipi.  Finley had a blast with the animals.  Can’t wait for the Stampede later today – she’ll go crazy.  
Just as we finished up with the petting zoo it started to rain and by rain I mean like torrential downpour.  By the time I reached the Traverse, we were all soaked from head to toe.  It was a long ride home in wet clothes!!!! 
 And have you ever tried taking off soaking wet skinny jeans?  Not a pleasant experience at all.  The stroller and my shoes had puddles!  PUDDLES!!!  It was insane!!  Hopefully it clears up before we hit the grounds this afternoon!!!  The sun looks like its trying to come out as I type this.  Debating whether to wear a skirt or jeans to the grounds.  I wonder how the mosquitos are???  A skirt would get less wet then pants and I would be dry faster but then I might be colder…decisions, decisions……
All in all, it was a great time at breakfast and we can’t wait to do it all over again in the morning with D and her girls!!
