National Pancake Day

Did you know that today was National Pancake Day?

Did you also know that IHOP gives out free pancakes on National Pancake Day every year?

Yep, they do. We found out last year and went and because Yohn had to work last year when we went, he insisted we go again this year. The kids, of course, did not object to this a bit so we got up a little earlier than usual and had a free pancake breakfast courtesy of IHOP.

And since IHOP was in such a giving mood we decided to donate a little money to the Children's Miracle Network too, since ya know that's what the goal is by giving away the free pancakes in the first place. (Nice face, son)

This was supposed to be one of those photos where the pancake was the focus and I faded into the background but it's not because #1 I was't behind the camera and #2 I'm not really that skilled at those kind of photos so it probably would have looked just like this anyways (ya know, minus me and all).

And I just had to throw this pic in too. This was the sunrise this morning as we were leaving the house. It's pretty huh? But you know what they say about a red sky in the morning. All we got today was rain, rain, rain.

Oooo, I totally will remember that for next year! As long as my A.D.D. will allow! :) Maybe you'll have to remind me.

Beautiful photo of the sunrise! We didn't get any rain here yesterday. :( I love the rain.

Aww Man! I did not know that IHOP gave out free pancakes on national pancake day! Well I did not even know it was National Pancake Day! I did not know there was such a thing actually. But I am bummed that I missed out on free pancakes. I will try to remember this coming around next year and I will be taking my family out for a free pancake breakfast for sure. Is is Feb 23 or the last Tuesday of February?

Love the pic of the sunrise!! :)
