Ten on Tuesday-Mother's Day

1. I think this was the BEST Mother's Day I have ever had! AND, I thank these two for making me able to celebrate Mother's Day!

2. I am sorry to say it, but The Farm was VERY DISAPPOINTING! VERY! The food was decent, but NO Eggs Benedict, so in my opinion, that is a GIGANTIC FAIL! BUT THE FLIES, I don't think I have ever seen so many flies or gnats in one location. They were crawling over my body, food, kids, drinks, etc. It was DISGUSTING! I understand that it was an outdoor brunch, but I kind of lose my appetite when I am scooping some potatoes and flies from the serving dish!

3. We had to get our own drinks. If you know ANYTHING about this family, you know that we love to drink. . .whether it is ice tea, coffee, juice, water, milk, Diet Coke, wine, WHATEVER it is our cup needs to be full and getting up and down every thirty seconds to refill some one's cup is NOT my idea of fun!



6. Oh, but the brownie, I think that made up for it all! I am not a sweets person, but I love brownies, especially brownies with frosting-Pat doesn't like frosting on his brownies-WEIRDO! This brownie was covered in fudge-like frosting and then topped with caramel! WONDERFUL!

7. On the way home from brunch we stopped at the park, the kids loved it. I loved it to until these two itty bitty kids were playing, and I was afraid my gigantic children would mow them down, so we had to leave! BUT SERIOUSLY, when did my kids get so big?

8. We made it to my very favorite destination of the day. JAMBA JUICE!!!! Where Pat did the wheat grass shot. I don't think I have laughed that hard in FOREVER!!! People were staring at us. I am sure no one knew it was a Mother's Day gift because who would want something weird like that!? ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He has the most delicate taste buds and can barely stand the sight of an onion, I knew what the grass shot would do to him!

9. He claims it wasn't that bad! I think the pictures prove otherwise!

10. The kids got smoothies. . .all was right in the world!

I was also at The Mother's Day Brunch at The Farm and had a really good time. I didn't have any real problems with the flies, the omelets were AMAZING and the shrimp were HUGE! I don't recall the menu saying there would be eggs bendict? So not sure why you would expect it?

The reason there were no bloody marys or mimosas is because anytime that The Farm has a brunch event, its a bring your own champagne or wine. They have the glasses for you.

Sorry, I've just always been a fan of The Farm and haven't heard anyone have such a bad time. I want to make sure that everyone knows that it really is a great place to visit!

I have to agree with Bridget. Don't think it's fair that you posted such negative things about the place. It's such a great place to go to!
