The Sunday Salon: Danish Style

We went to Solvang today. It was sunny and gorgeous and you can’t stay indoors when it’s sunny and gorgeous out. A friend recommended this pancake house.

She is very excited about her pancakes.

He’s excited too. What do you think of his new short haircut? The GIRLS asked him to cut it apparently.

The Danish Pancake Special. YUM. Look at the size of them!

They have bookstores there. Two of them. I bought a copy of The Space Between Us. She bought a bookmark.

Now that we’re home, we are about to throw something on the grill. Yep. More eating. It was right around 80 degrees today and it just felt wonderful but the warm weather makes me hungry. Should be the opposite. Too bad I can’t blame it on a growth spurt.

As you can imagine, I got ZERO reading in because of all my frolicking in Solvang but once the kids go down, I plan to curl-up with The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott. So far, the story is charming and it will be the perfect end to my day.

I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday as much as I am.

  1. Ti…sounds like the perfect Sunday. Your kids are so cute! I loved The Space Between Us (hope u do too).

    Have a great Week!

  2. The Danish pancakes I make are round but those look delicious! So you’ve got The Space Between Us and you’re ready for the read along?! I’m thinking June–I gotta get thru the middle one’s graduation!

    • Yes. I am all ready for the read-along and June sounds perfect! Those pancakes were round but they were bigger than the plate so they folded them under. They were gooooooood.

  3. You have the most adorable kids ever! And I love the bacon (aka Babe) on the pancake! :–)

  4. What a fun Sunday! Any day that begins with giant pancakes is a good day in my book!

  5. Sounds like a great way to spend the day! You’re in trouble if the GIRLS are already after your son!

  6. Is that a real smile I see on your son’s face? Is he outgrowing his aversion to the camera?

  7. Great pictures of the kids…so cute that your son is styling his hair based on the girls recommendation!
    The pancakes look delish..now I’m craving them! I enjoy reading about your weekend outings that often involved books and food! Right down my alley!

  8. I’ve been to Solvang! Although that was a long time ago. But anyway your kids look great as always. Love the happy faces. (And the bookshelves in the backgraound heheh). :)

  9. Ti, what a perfect day! Too cute about your son cutting his hair for the girls. You’re in trouble. lol.

  10. Lovely day! Enjoy your time with your bambinos. It passes quickly. (I know everybody says that, but, trust me, it is really, really true!)

    If you are interested, I’m hosting a giveaway on my blog post for Sunday Salon. I’m giving away two $10 gift certificates. I hope you will stop in!

  11. My family lives in the Valley (which is what we call all of Santa Ynez Valley — including Solvang). So fun to see people enjoying it… isn’t it such a great place? I imagine you were at The Book Loft. It’s one of my very favorites. Not so much because of the selection (though they have a pretty good one for a store their size) but for the atmosphere as well. Hope you enjoyed your trip! I will look forward to hearing how The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott turns out. I haven’t heard of it, but love her!

    • The Santa Ynez Valley is such a beautiful place. I could not get over how green everything was. I live close enough to visit every year or so. We used to stay in Carpinteria every summer and when we did, we’d always hit Solvang. I’m glad to see that business is thriving. About 6 years ago it wasn’t doing so well and I don’t recall there being any bookstores then. Thanks for stopping by to comment. I hope you’ll visit again.
