We Took My Dad - AKA Grandpa Out For a Birthday Breakfast

I don't know how people can skip breakfast. It's my favorite meal of the day. 

Over the weekend my sister's and I took my Dad AKA Grandpa Spiehs for breakfast at First Watch. I love their food because they do have healthier options, or you can splurge and get a traditional breakfast. We're taking our parent's out more and more over getting gifts. Once people hit a certain point in their life they don't need a whole lot. I'm at that point. We did get him a book he wanted.

After our morning out we went back to my parent's house, and asked our Mom to take pictures. We had a good laugh because every shot she jerked the camera, she cut off my Dad's head in a good shot where he was smiling. Then my oldest short sister said, "If she goes too much higher I'll barely be in the picture." :)

My mom sits on one side of the couch only, so the couch is really worn down on that side. Everyone looks taller than my Dad, who is super tall. Look at me, I'm a giant. 

My Dad always takes the photos. I don't think I've ever seen a camera in my Mom's hands.
I post these shots on FB per my sister's request. My Mom wrote in a comment, "Why is everyone's faces stretched?" I didn't do anything to anyone's faces. I did not know what she was talking about.
I did what any punk of a daughter would do and stretched our faces big time, and tagged my Mom. Then I asked my sister Terra, "What in the heck was she talking about?" Terra didn't know. She was laughing at the on purpose stretched photos. Her high tech Kindle that she sometimes knows how to use must have been stretching our faces.

I feel pretty with an egg shaped head. LOL
Seriously I love my parents though. They love me - even when I'm goofy. I know I'll have my pay back moments. Mica and Isaak have my crazy sense of humor as well.

We never really get to go out to breakfast, but when we do, I love it! I'm sure your dad really enjoyed his outing.

My, what big feet you have too! lol. That's lovely you were able to take your parents out for dad's birthday. I also prefer food to trinkets when gift opportunities arise.

Streeeeetch! Fun to tease our parents, isn't it. My Mom was aghast the one time I posted a photo of me without makeup on, lol.

I love breakfast food, just not at breakfast time. My body isn't ready for food until around 11, so that is why we have brinner so often in our house.
