Flapjack fantasy

One of my favorite things about Frontier Days is the free pancake breakfast downtown at the Depot.

My goal is to eat pancakes three times during Frontier Days, that is, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday when they have the feeds.

Monday is the busy breakfast for me because I get assigned to a Denver news crew and am helping them get set up and get interviews. But I still find time to make it through the line for some flapjacks!

This photo reminds me of John Denver's "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" song..."When the suns comin' up I got cakes on the griddle..." I think I've mentioned on here before how much I love the word griddle...

The flapjack cookers flip the "cakes" to Boy Scouts who act as catchers...

One of our Chey-town Grizzlies, which is our baseball team...

There's always live entertainment on the plaza during the feed. This country group was pretty good...


  1. That plaza really does a lot of business for all kinds of events, doesn't it? Looks like lots of fun!

  2. Mmmm... this looks great!

    Kim, I feel that you really know how to enjoy your life. I appreciate that so much about you. Some people have a "the grass is always greener" approach to life, but it seems like you make every day an adventure!

  3. How many flap jacks do you think the boyscouts drop? :)

  4. Did you notice the little boy in the stroller behind the big container of flapjacks looking at them? Enlarge the picture. It's cute.

  5. That's true, Ann, she does!
