This little princess went to town

This is a story about a little 3 year old that went to town with her Grandpa and Grandma, who both had eye doctor appointments. 

It turned into a 2 hour office visit. With both of us having our eyes dilated and checked, it took awhile. Did I mention how good this little girl was. She never asked,  "are we done yet?" or "can we go now?" She not only entertained us, but others in the office too. 

So after the appointment we told her we would treat her to brunch at Mel's. It's a local diner and the food is always good. 

Nothing doing, but she wanted to sit with her Grandpa!

Her mind was made up before we arrived. She knew she wanted bacon, eggs, a Minnie Mouse pancake, and MILK. After all, this wasn't her first trip to Mel's. She cleaned her plate and drank two glasses of milk. 

My lunch was delicious, BBQ pork sandwich with sweet potato fries. I also had a side order of baked turnips. The waitress gave me the recipe when I ordered them. She said you boil the turnips, drain them, add 2 kinds of cheese, and diced fried bacon. Bake and serve. Oh they were delicious!

Just another fun day with the little princess.

Life is good.

She's so cute! She looks just like that picture you posted of yourself on FB.

The turnips sound great, and I think I'm going to try them with some turnip chunks I have in the freezer.

Your granddaughter is so cute. What a good girl she was and so patient. Her breakfast food looks delicious to me -- but turnips -- not my cup of tea, although with bacon and cheese I might try them!
