So we went out to brunch last Saturday. It was the first time ever taking Sam to brunch, and it went SO WELL! Like, better than expected! You never know how these things will go (you know, the simple act of going out in public with a toddler) but it couldn’t have gone better! Sam did so well. He was happy and content and chowed down on french toast and apple chicken sausage and fruit and it was pretty great. I also chowed down on all of the food. Because, pregnant. And also, because it was delicious. If you’re a local Sacramentan, I definitely recommend Cafe Bernardo! Their lunch is to. die. for. And get the Amaretto Brioche French Toast, OMGGGGG. Heavenly. Why can’t I ever make French Toast this good at home?!
One thing that made this brunch go so well, I think, is that Sam got to sit right next to me in the booth. :) Highchairs are great and all, but Bumbo sent us their brand new 3-in-1 multi seat to try out, and so we decided to bring it with us to test out, and it made for such a fun meal! I loved how easy it was to feed him and give him kisses when he was just sitting there, right beside me, like a big boy. I think it made him happier, too, which made the entire experience happier. Because, you know, if Baby is happy, everybody’s happy. Basically. So yes. This new Bumbo seat goes from baby to toddler, which is awesome, and we plan on using it with Baby Did What #2 also. I’m pretty excited about it.
And can we talk about my little model for a sec?! I mean, look at him! After eating, we walked around (err.. ran around…) to get all our energy out before heading home. It was the most beautiful day and he was loving exploring a new place. Isn’t that tee so cute?! It’s from Printed Palette, and we even got a matching one for his sibling. I mean, could you just die?! Also, the chambray. All of my baby fashion dreams are coming true, you guys.
And I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m ready to go to brunch again this weekend! Maybe we’ll make it a more frequent thing. Then again, once Baby comes along, I’ll probably be changing my tune… ;)
What’s your favorite thing to get at brunch?
Do you have a fail-proof French Toast recipe? Please share!
Looks like you had fun, Katie! Those clothes are adorable! And I love your stripes, so cute. Just a couple more months!

Aww thanks girl!!
I loooove those t-shirts! My son’s first word was “duck” because he sleeps with a little stuffed duck and he loves the bath and the rubber duckies that go with it. His favourite word is duck (we even carved a duck pumpkin for Halloween).
I MUST get him that duck-duck-goose shirt! I call him Goose all the time becuase he’s always saying “duck, duck”!
Aww love that you call him Goose- that is TOO cute.
So cute!! I have to ask since my youngest son is just a little younger than Sam.. does Sam reach for everything on the table?? We have to literally move every single item away from Ronan because his arms can reach everything!
YES! You can kind of see in the photos, nothing is in front of Sam. ;) haha!

I love those sweet little duck tees! And so funny, I made french toast this Sunday, and I NEVER do that! It’s usually too sweet for me, but I just took almond milk, egg, cinnamon, and a splash of vanilla extract and whisked it together, dunked the bread and then cooked on the stovetop! I topped with super ripe banana which made it so yummy and sweet!
Ooh I’ve never made it with almond milk! Will try that. And that’s exactly how I make mine, I just need to figure out the right portions is all… And I like a LOT of vanilla haha.
Where in Sacramento? I go up to Elk Grove often to visit horse friends and horse show :) The food looks amazing so I’d love to try it out!
Oh and I LOVE those shirts with the ducks! SO cute!
Aww so awesome! My grandpa lives in Elk Grove! :) And he has horses! We’re closer to downtown.
Your little dude… He’s just so darn cute. :)
And those shirts… Die! My baby girl is 16 months and she loves ducks so much. It’s her thing. I got her the Mini Melissa Duck boots and it is so adorable watching her walk around in them saying “quack! Quack!”
God bless these littles. They sure do make us complete! :)
Such a cute brunch date! I’m so glad it went well!! I remember the first time my friend decided to take her son to brunch. Our husbands were working so we went together and it was a rather interesting meal haha like you said, you never know how an outing with a toddler will go!
Haha! Yeahhh, it’s always a toss-up as to how the baby will behave, that’s for sure. But I find more often than not, it’s worth it to get out and live life! :)
