Out to lunch

We took a trip up to Maine this weekend to get some of that good "Fall" air that comes earlier to the good folks up North. Hollis enjoyed the ride up, but was really excited to get out and walk around too. We did something with her we haven't done a many years: we went into a restaurant to sit down and eat. Granted, it was a glorified pizza joint, but we did actually have to sit and wait for our food and eat it at the table. We haven't attempted this for a long time because she would always scream, throw things and be a general menace to society: and that was just in the first 5 minutes!

She actually was able to sit still for about 10 minutes before she had to get up and walk around a bit, but she didn't make a big fuss about it. When the food finally was ready, we took it outside on their deck to eat it. She enjoyed the salad, the french fries and cheesesteak sub, and the whole scene only fell apart toward the end when took Daddy's hat and threw it into some rosebushes. Then the goofball came out: she started letting the food fall out of her mouth and she thought this was hilarious. We left soon after this little matinee performance.
