Celebrating once more with a farewell brunch at Gram’s!


We were woken up this morning by the fire alarm at our hotel – at 9am! And we were still asleep. Luckily it was a false alarm, but it still forced us to get up and dressed, so we headed out to Goucher College for more walking. I clocked it on Google maps as 1.5 miles around, which we did twice. A great workout for me!

I ate the rest of my Great Harvest Trek bar as breakfast, but since we woke up late and were due at Gram’s, I saved a trip out for breakfast for brunch.



Brunch was a lovely selection of sweet, savory, fruity and crabby!



We’re hanging out here for a bit before we hit the road south!

Ahhhh…to sleep in until 9 would be a dream :) I have been up since before 5:30 because I had to nurse my twins. Enjoy these last couple of months!

Lovely array of food items for your brunch! Love the plate! How nice that you could be with all the generations of father’s for Father’s Day!

There is nothing better than Gram’s cooking; I have very fond memories of my Grandma and all of the goodies that she would make. She loved to spend time in the kitchen cooking and baking and the day she passed away at 90 of a heart attack, there were warm pies found cooling when she was found. I know that she died happy doing what she liked most. The only thing that gave her more pleasure was spending time with family.

Happy Father’s Day Matt and enjoy the rest of your day Kath!

Happy Father’s Day to Matt. :) Have a safe trip home.

Matt looks like he’s enjoying himself 😉

i have such a love/hate relationship with brunch! usually i wake up quite hungry, so it’s hard for me to wait till 10-11 am to eat. then i stress over whether to get breakfast food or lunch food! lucky you have a grandma who cooks both :)

:) Happy Father’s Day to be to Matt!

Your mom’s blouse looks really nice on her!

Gotta love sweet & savory — the best of both worlds!

We just ate some blueberries for an after dinner treat.

your grandmother always looks so elegant….I hope I look half that good at her age!


15 Jennifer June 17, 2012 at 6:22 pm

We do our track workouts for my half marathon training group at Goucher! Sometimes we’ll run the loop instead, that’s so cool you were there!


16 KathEats June 17, 2012 at 6:24 pm

It’s such a pretty campus!


17 Alyssa (pb and oats) June 17, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Those berries look so good!


18 Kris June 17, 2012 at 6:39 pm

Sleeping in until 9:00? Lucky you! Enjoy it while you can :)


19 Abby F June 17, 2012 at 7:38 pm

That brunch looks delicious! Haha and at least the alarm wasn’t super early in the morning, although I’m sure for some of the partiers that was a rude awakening!


22 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count June 18, 2012 at 7:36 am

Delicious looking brunch!


23 Ashley @ Hudson on the Potomac June 18, 2012 at 11:25 am

Brunch looks great! Glad the fire was just a false alarm!


24 Julia H. @ Going Gulia June 18, 2012 at 12:14 pm

The words “fire alarm” make me cringe! Freshman year of college, I was caught in the shower during TWO different fire alarms in my dorm! Not to mention, I go to school in Western NY where it’s freezing most of the year, so running outside with wet hair, shower flip flops, and whatever pajamas I had with me at the shower is not exactly the most comfortable thing. Oh, college…

Brie, berries, and carbs? Sounds like a good meal to me :)
