Breakfast at Wimbledon
Yep, it all started 3 years ago (not the Tournament's tradition of breakfast at Wimbledon, but Scott's tradition of breakfast during Wimbledon) when Scott and I were just dating and he came with me to Iowa to spend the 4th of July with my family. The Sunday that the men's final was on fell on the 4th of July (2004). Scott decided to make this big extravagant breakfast at my parents house and invite my grandma over as well. (he knew how to win my family over!) Well, it worked! Since then every year we've had our annual breakfast during Wimbledon. 2005's location was at my Aunt Chris's in Des Moines and 2006 was in Annapolis with my brother. This year as you can see it was just us, but what a morning it was! We even blew a fuse a few times as Scott was trying to microwave, toast and cook on the stove, at the same time I was trying to clean the dishes in the dishwasher. We figured it out and soon enough breakfast was cooked and the 3 hr 45min. match was beginning.
It was a great match too! We were both pulling for Federer, but Nadal never ceased to amaze us with his quickness and persistence in each and every point. We were happy for Federer in the end...now next year we want him to win the French as well!
