Fridays are my favorite day of the week by far! They are our family day, our only full day off together. Yes, it is tough only having one day off but Brett's other day off is his Daddy/Daughter day with Emersyn and that is really special. :) This is just a season of our life too....someday we will enjoy two days off. Right now, "for such a time is this..."


Yesterday we had one of most fun family days that we have had in a long time! Often times Fridays end up being days to run errands, get together with friends, etc. But yesterday we had no plans. Those are the best kind of days in my opinion!!!

We slept in a little because we were up so late the night before, even Emersyn! Once we got up we all got ready to go and headed to SlappyCakes, a brand spankin' new breakfast joint over in SE Portland. Brett had heard about it from one of his residents at work. (He is a property manager) We love trying new places and going on little adventures so this was right up our alley. We had such a great time there!!! You could buy pancake batter and make the pancakes right at your own table!!

The food was really yummy. Brett and I each got our own buttermilk batter and split a classic breakfast of hashbrowns, eggs, bacon and toast. It was really fresh and natural tasting food and reasonably priced too!

Excited for breakfast! (Side note: got her turtleneck at Gymboree last summer for $2. SCORE! Got her tights at Gymboree too last week, ALSO $2. Skirt is hand-me-down from neighbor/friend. Total for her outfit=$4. Whoo hoo!)

Emersyn: "So are we just gonna sit her or are we gonna order??"

"Can I have one of those E pancakes?"

LOVE this orange booth, such a sassy color!!

Can't wait for more SlappyCake adventures in our future!!

Hey, I nominated you for an award on my blog. Check it out!

That place looks fun! Oh btw - we won't be coming for Thanksgiving :(

That looks like so much fun!! I wish we had a place like that here.

Spencer has the same Gymboree shirt that Emersyn is wearing- we must have the same similar, wonderful taste in toddler clothes as each other :)

Hope you have a great start to your week!

Just the name, "Slappy Cakes" sounds delightful!

Oh I love me some breakfast food. I just went to the most adorable place with a girlfriend for lunch yesterday, and I ended up ordering an omelette. Yum!
