a max and a waffle house

 max has been begging me to take him to waffle house for weeks now.
 he's never been before...but i think the simplicity of the name lured him in. he knew exactly what was going on in there. and my guy is obsessed with waffles!

this morning we woke up early and sneaked away to waffle house for breakfast before school. 
it was everything he had hoped for!
we sat at the bar and rubbed elbows with regulars...ate waffles and scrambled eggs and everyone around helped celebrate max's first trip to such a happy place. after the head cook handed max a waffle house baseball cap, we decided this was the most wonderful place in town. 

breakfast dates with max and waffles bring out the smoochy side in me. 
and we've decided to make it a monthly thing...

have a wonderful weekend, friends!
xoxo

  4. my mother and i used to have "special days," which were spent getting up early for waffle house steak and eggs, then we would head up north to the Neil Armstrong Space Museum. when we were done there, we'd go bowling. i still look back on them fondly. you're a wonderful mother, Katie, my love.

  13. This just lightened up my entire already-lovely evening! Waffle Haus! Waffle Haus! I think the only thing I can imagine liking more is the Waffle Truck in Portland.

    Beautiful beautiful life.

    Max has good, good taste in food.

  16. I love your posts about Max and the things you do. I have a 17 year old son and funny enough I just posted about our breakfast on Friday at my blog. Great Mama's think alike!

  17. few things can match a mom-son date, but add syrupy waffles to the mix and we can pretty much call it heaven.

    lovely, you two.

  19. Ahh, Waffle House. I haven't been to the Waffle House in years. I hope that the ones in my home town still look the same. I love that they still have that orange, yellow and brown color scheme. And the same plates and menu! Man, thanks for this nostalgic post.
    Your family is adorable. It's so lovely to see how much you enjoy life and your family.

    Cheers,

    Carmen
