When I heard about Denny's giving away their "Grand Slam" breakfast for FREE across America only on February 3, 2008 - I decided that Maddy and I had to have a day out together :)
I figured it would be busier early because people would want to go before work. So we went at about 10:30 a.m. That turned out to be a good time, because I only had to wait about 15-20 minutes. The inside lobby was FULL and there were a few people out the door. But it turns out that carrying a new baby in a car seat gets you in the warmth FAST and gets you an automatic seat in the lobby while you are waiting :) I brought some paperwork with me that I had to fill out and I just worked on that while Maddy looked around.
We got our own little booth. When I sat down, I looked out the window and the line had wrapped the whole way around the restaurant. I totally should have gotten a picture. It was seriously snowing and freezing cold out, but people were totally waiting out there!
They didn't allow any changes to the meal, but you could get your eggs the way you wanted them. It was funny because EVERYONE was there for the "Grand Slam" breakfast so as soon as she asked how I would like my eggs and if I would like coffee - she literally walked away from the table, poured my coffee, picked up the plate from the kitchen and walked back to my table with everything. And the food was fresh off the grill! Maddy was so good too. We had such a nice time together - and you certainly cannot beat FREE!
After that, we decided to stop by Starbucks to see Tim. Everyone kept stopping to talk to us and see the baby. Amazing how total strangers will come up to you to and talk to you when you have a baby. Oh and yes, that is an iced Chai Latte in my hand - also FREE!
Tim buckling her back up for me. It was nice seeing him in the middle of the day where he works.
His boss offered to get a family picture of us.
Now I am back home and need to do some serious laundry and cleaning!
