Rise & Shine..........literally

We went out for breakfast our last day in Ohio. There is a quaint little, family owned restaurant called Rise & Shine that the kids frequent. Owned by a husband and wife and very family oriented.

It's all about the straws

I love seeing the table of women behind Mia. They were having a nice time also.

Hey Mama, where's the food? I'm hungry

Meanwhile on the other end of the table (I had the best seat don't you think?) Mia was still busy with her straw. Papa Joe and Aunt Stephy were entertaining her.

Finally the fruit came for the girls

Auby looks like she is sticking the grape up her nose

These girls LOVE fruit. I am really impressed as to how Amy & Jeremy limit their sweet intake.

Emmeline got some bananas and scarfed them down

We had such a great time. After we ate we drove over to a nearby park so the girls could play for a while. That's coming up on my next post.

I dreamed last night that we were back in Ohio. We were playing and singing and having a wonderful time. I would give anything to have our kids closer to Kentucky, but their jobs keep them in Ohio. At least for now. I'll never give up on the hope that someday they will move closer. I miss them every day. I'm gonna start saving for our next trip!
