Heather and Mom were enjoying themselves.
Grandpa and Grandma Jones.
This is the only kind of smile I can get on demand from Emma now. Very posed, and not very smiley!
Dana ordered hot chocolate- the natural choice for a warm summer day.
I have cute kids- that is all.
My Grandpa's birthday was the next day, so Heather alerted the waitress to this detail, and they gave him a lovely (and loud) serenade. To be honest, it was pretty obnoxious, but the fried ice cream was worth it!
Heather was proud of her sneakiness.
Dana was grateful for ice cream- to follow up her hot chocolate, of course.
Now, the whole time while Emma was lap hopping, Grandpa kept trying to get Emma to take a turn next to him. She would have none of it- he was just too much of a stranger. That all changed, however, when he had a giant dish of ice-cream next to his plate. The minute she saw the ice cream, she started shouting "I wanna sit by Grandpa, I wanna sit by Grandpa." and she made a beeline for my chair (which was next to his).
