         Had a good night's sleep at daughter number 1's in Aurora after another busy fun Thanksgiving day with the kids and 6 of our Grands. Up early as usual for us, I finished my Monday blog posting this morning and we waited until about 9 am before heading out of town, After we said goodbye to our 3 grands here as they headed of too school. South on HWY 400  to HWY 401 in Toronto and westbound to Tavistock. A bit slow on hwy 400 but no delays and we got lucky the 401 fast paced and light traffic heading west, Eastbound looked busy and very slow going.
        Made it to Tavistock just after 11 am and Suzie checked with her Dad, he wanted to see us one more time before we leave the area. So we picked him in New Hamburg and took him to his and our favourite restaurant in Milbank Ontario, (mennonite country). Anna Maes  for their famous Broasted chicken. Do we need another feast? Not really, but sure can't turn down their chicken and wanted to see her Dad one more time.
nice country drive to Millbank
their renovations look wonderful
       While we waited to be seated, check out the bakery with lots of amazing fresh baked items.
so many pies
fresh baked, breads, buns, cookies etc..
but we did not give in
awesome cheesecakes as well
this Buggy booth can be reserved
seats 4
the waiting area
           We got seated and not long afterwards our meals arrived fresh cooked and hot. yummy !
Suzie's broasted Chicken , Mashed and turnip
Me Broasted, chicken fries and carrots
fresh baked cheese bun too
         Then Suzie's Dad enjoyed a piece if his favourite raisin pie, we declined desert.
         Then we took him back to New Hamburg , picked up our car and back to the coach at her Sister's. A nice relaxing afternoon outside on the patio, and a warm afternoon, enjoying our e-readers. It's been a while and so nice to get wrapped up in our page turner's again.

but then she decides that Suzie's lap is inviting for a while
Kitty fix for Suzie
        Walking about the driveway spotted this praying mantis wandering about. amazing bugs they are !
Gus spotted him, but did not move around enough
to be interesting, so it got to live
         About 6 pm we headed inside, no more food needed today, and not much for the next while, thats for sure.
        After a fun busy Thanksgiving weekend and back home to our coach in Tavistock, Some appointments tomorrow and Thursday than we head on down towards St Catherines for a Hockey tournament this coming weekend
         Hope y'all had a great fall day as well still enjoying this wonderful weather that we are having.

Where have we been this summer ?


  1. Sounds like you had another wonderful day spending time with family. Plus, it is always nice to be able to sit and relax.

    1. Thanks it was a wonderful day , and the relaxing very nice too.

  2. Sounds like you've had a busy weekend!

    1. We did have a very busy weekend still a few more things to get done yet.

  3. You had more will power than I would have had!! Those pastries looked delicious!!
    Sounds like a very nice Thanksgiving!!!

    1. The pastries are wonderful, but that is one thing that I can resist is deserts.
      We had an excellent thanksgiving.

  4. Love the buggy booth. I bet it's pretty popular. Nice to get together with everyone before winter sets in. I'd be snatching a few of those desserts.

    1. The buggy booth is very popular usually always someone in it.
      Suzie is the desert person and she talked herself out of it, I was surprised.

  5. I can't get over how Anna Mae's has expanded. Bill took me for the first time a few years ago, in the mid 90's and it was much smaller then. Wonderful place to eat. Of course, Bill's 2 daughters got their employment starts there.
    Nice weekend you've had too!

    1. They sure have expanded and well worth a visit for a great meal too.
      We sure did have a very nice weekend.

  6. Back to protein and salad! Give those carbs a break. Once in a while it's fun to pig out though. The clock is ticking, the desert becons...

    1. Yes Peter that is so true, protein and salads is the plan as much as we can. And the desert becons for sure !

  7. I'm beginning to think that Suzie is an animal lover. ;c)

    1. LOL, she is as long as they are other peoples animals.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
