We met my parents on Thursday to get Ruthi back from her visit with them, and to have a "Mother's Day" lunch since we weren't able to get together on Sunday. We ate at a wonderful place that waas different from any I'd eaten at before. It kinda reminded me of a cafeteria - very casual, with floors like you'd see in a school or hospital cafeteria. They had big round tables that sat 8 or 10 people (I can't remember for sure.) So you may end up sitting with other people. There were 6 of us, so they sat us at an empty one, and it wasn't too crowded, so we didn't have anyone else join us. In the middle of the table is a Lazy Susan that sits a bit higher than the rest of the table. There are no menus, they just bring out what they are serving that day and put it on the Lazy Susan, and you dig in. It's all you can eat - you just ask for more of whatever you have run out on. I have to say EVERYTHING I ate was WONDERFUL! Apparently they are known for their chicken, and it wasn't difficult to figure out why. It was fabulous! And there was cabbage (awesome!), barbeque, corn, beans, cole slaw, and I don't even remember what else, but it was all so incredibly good! They are only open 3 or 4 days a week, and I certainly hope to eat there again!
I took a couple of pictures when we were finished eating.

When it was time to part ways, we had to switch the carseat back to our car. I got tickled at Chip "in" the carseat.
And look who was driving!
And one last shot. I'm trying to get over the fact that I'm not happy with the way I look in pictures, and get in a few here and there. I'm just considering the ones taken now and recently as "before" shots and hopefully soon I'll have some much better "after" ones! Since this was technically a Mother's Day celebration, I figured I'd get in a shot with my kids and my mom.
Once we left there, we went to visit Chip's Mom too. I didn't get any pictures while we were there. She had her hair in curlers, and I figured I'd be kind and not take her picture like that. But we had a nice visit and Chip's Dad made it home from work before we had to leave, so we got to visit with him too. We didn't get home until almost midnight and we all slept in on Friday morning!
