Brunch and Mom's Apartment - Sunday, July 25, 2010

We actually got up early and did a 15 mile bike ride before heading to Mom's apartment around 9:30.  We had plans to go to Sunday Brunch with mom.  Every Sunday, The Lakes serves brunch in lieu of an evening meal.  Everybody told us it is great.  Since I usually work on Sunday at 11:00, we decided we best try it while I have the day off.  But first, we had to hang curtains.  You should understand by now that,"WE WORK FOR FOOD!" 

We got the curtains hung and headed down to brunch.
Here's the menu and they didn't even list the dessert table!!

Our Table  - They have just redecorated the entire dining room!

Getting in line for good eats!

Wonderful selection including a carving station and....
The omelet, waffle and fruit station.  Bill is getting his omelet just the way he likes it.

It was a great meal and we truly enjoyed ourselves.  I told mom I may have to get my usual schedule adjusted at work so I can come for brunch regularly.  Breakfast is my favorite meal and the food was outstanding!!

As I said, we hung the curtains before we got to eat...   So here are the "finished" apartment pictures.  There are a couple bare walls, but they will be occupied soon when mom decides which photos go where.

Mom is only about 4' 9" tall and the microwave over the stove is just to high for her to use safely. So we brought the one from the house.  Better to be safe than sorry!!
