Father's Day at Cracker Barrel

We were traveling back to Nanaland on Sunday Morning and we stopped at Cracker Barrel so Marvin could enjoy a nice Father's Day Breakfast.  Seating was at half capacity so we had a little wait. I walked around the store taking pictures to share with all the CB fans here on the blog.

The dining room was decked out in patriotic glory....I love all the eye candy at Cracker Barrel.

 Flamingos are still a big thing it seems. I know some of my girlies love flamingos.
 These mugs seem appropriate for this day and time.

 I love that barn with the flag on it.

 Here is a close up of the truck....another favorite of mine.

 I may have to pick up this essential oil book for Nanaland.

 Yes, probably so!!

 All the patriotic gifts were on sale...I am thinking fall things will be on display once the 4th is celebrated.

 I need this where I can see it every day!! Sorry for the was on a lower shelf in the store.

 More garden themed merchandise.

 There was a table of wedding gift items as well.

Yes, I am a Professional Nana!!

Hope you enjoyed strolling through Cracker Barrel with me this morning.

Thank you for all the prayers for my mother. She is doing better but she is not liking the limitations that aging brings. We were able to have home health come to see her several times a week. They will assist with multiple things and I think it will be good for her to have someone come and visit several times a week. My sisters see her every day but she needs some new faces.  We also arranged for a part time sitter for a while until we can see how she is going to do long term. This is someone she calls her fourth daughter so I think it will be good for her to have that company as well.  I know many of you have dealt or are dealing with similar situations. One day at a time is the best approach and we will do what we have to do. Keep those prayers going up please. We appreciate them.

Thank you for the update on your Mother. Prayers will continue. I know you and Marvin enjoyed your breakfast at CB. I always enjoy the pretties in their gift area. I hope you have an enjoyable week.

I haven't been on in a few days and need to catch up. Sorry to hear that your Mom needs some extra care. It sounds like you have a great plan for her set up. I hope she is doing well and I will keep her in my prayers.

Love going to Cracker Barrel when we travel, I always find something there! Those patriotic buntings caught my eye and the lacy edged Bless our home would be so pretty for a Spring stitch to sit in.

I love rambling through Cracker Barrel, they always have something you wont see anywhere else. Loved your pictures. Will be praying for your Mother and those that care for her.

Arlene, you really brought a smile to my day. We haven't ventured to Cracker Barrel, just yet. Your pictures were delightful. Pink Flamingo's always make me smile, and I don't have a one. So many goodies, so much eye candy:) You are all on my heart and in my prayers, many blessings to you and yours:)

Very happy to hear that your Mom seems to be doing a bit better and you were able to arrange some home health care to come and help out. Continuing to pray for her and for you and yours. Thank you for all the pictures from your Cracker Barrel visit, Arlene. I always enjoys the photos you take when you go. Have a marvelous Monday!

I'm glad your mom is better and it sounds like you and your sisters have made some great decisions for her on-going well-being. Prayers continue! I haven't been to Cracker Barrel is months and months. Ours is 10-12 miles away and in an area we don't travel to very often so it just isn't on our radar. I love their gift shops though! Glad y'all had a good weekend at your sanctuary!!

I always enjoy your visits to Cracker Barrel. It's such a fun place!
Glad your mom is doing better. I'm glad you have a plan. It's hard to see them decline.

I love CRACKER BARREL!! That book Signing Their Lives Awau soubds intriguing. I used to have a booklet about the signers of the Declaration of Independence and what happened to them but I can't find it now. I did so enjoy the stroll through CB! Thank you!!
Continued prayers for your mom and family.

So sorry to read that your own mother is not doing well, Arlene. (I really didn't stay caught up with everyone while at my mother's for the past three weeks.) It sounds like she will be well cared for and she is so lucky to have your sisters nearby. Will definitely keep her in my prayers. So hard to watch them fail, isn't it? ♥
