Lego pancake chef

Phew!  It went by like a whirlwind, but the Flapjack Attack was huge this year!  Starting at 9:00 a.m. on the dot, the library’s parking lot was filled with families lined up for pancakes.  Since we’re working the “Be Creative” theme this summer, library staff decided to take our own advice and think outside the box. Way out.

Picture pancakes by the dozen in shades of neon green, hot pink, bright turquoise, and rich purple.  Then picture topping them with neon whipped cream and a generous helping of sprinkles.  Oh, and butter and classic maple syrup, of course!

While the cooks weren’t sure about colored pancakes, the kids in attendance loved them.  (Did you expect anything else?)  We’re not sure how many pancakes we cooked exactly, but the crowd was pretty close to 500.  Ever cooked for 500?  We’re kind of exhausted…

Kids were entertained by a Transformer visit, a dance party, plenty of autographs from our summer stars, and—a personal favorite—a guest visit from some of our Tales to Tails regulars.  Rugby and Bailey got the star treatment, and we can’t wait to see them again when Tales to Tails starts up again in a month. Pancakes and puppies, and a truckload of chocolate milk; who could ask for anything more?

Thanks, Kuna, for making our annual pancake breakfast another huge success.  We’re thrilled that you came out and we appreciate your support.  And we’ve already got some ideas up our sleeves for next year…
