March 1st was National Pancake Day. In honor of this celebration, all the IHOP restaurants in America give a FREE short stack of pancakes. In return, they ask that you make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network. The kids and I have taken advantage of this the last two years and paired it with a trip to the aquarium.
This year we changed it up a bit and instead of going to the museum, we met homeschool friends there after we knew that most of the restaurant would be empty. We had a great turnout and lots of fun. We even had two of our dads join us! Who doesn't love FREE pancakes?
