We love when our family gets to come visit, and last weekend we were excited to spend time with Gran, Papa, Uncle Brandon, Uncle J, Aunt K, Zoey and G-Pa the Great!
It's become a tradition now that when they're here, we eat dinner at Miller's Grocery in Christiana. It's an old train depot-turned-grocery-turned-restaurant that features old-fashioned, Southern food (fried catfish, meatloaf, corn nuggets, frog legs and Mississippi Mud), and live bluegrass music on Friday and Saturday nights.
Zoey and Dawson were a little too excited about the music to eat.
Zoey was very ladylike and clapped along...
...while her alter-ego insisted upon becoming a table dancer. His mom was thrilled. Our waitresses comment was, "He's just so expressive!!" Uh-huh. That's the word.
Two of my favorite men...
We all had a good time. I hope we can do it again soon, seeing as how The Zohan is D-Word's favorite toy.
Until she comes back, he'll have to make do with the super-duper, handy-dandy, steal-of-a-deal $3 good-as-new portable snack stand that his daddy got him from the flea market.
No, I don't usually support the buying of toys at the flea market.
Seeing as how the word flea is involved.
But it was a hit. Especially after it was cleaned, Lysoled and disinfected.
You can pretend to grind ice to make slushies, fix snacks like pretzels and candy, and run a wee business with the built-in cash register!
"May I take your order?"
"I'll get that for you in just a second...I like to have a clean work space."
"Let me just grind the ice for you...did you say blueberry or cherry?"
"We take Visa, cash, debit or Goldfish."
"Thank you, Daddy...I love it!"
A little entrepreneur after his own heart.
