|Happy and Full!|
|Filling up at the 99 cent store!|
We sat and talked a while longer, took pictures of the kids and Joe, all wearing sunglasses from their gift bags, and had the waiter take a couple of all of us.

When the coffee was finished, we made our way out to the parking lot, where Andrew, my nephew, took the keys his father handed him. He has his learner's permit and is driving his family around these days. We said our goodbyes and climbed in our rental to head back to the hotel. As we followed them out of the parking lot, I thought, it's always the same... when in doubt, choose Italian... somehow, it is ALWAYS good! And then I watched Andrew as he drove through a yellow light and KNEW that inside that vehicle, my brother and sister-in-law were saying....."slow down, slow down, slow down....OK, just go through!!!" I have to say, I do NOT miss those days of teaching my kids to drive!
It was really nice getting to see them. Living on opposite sides of the continent, we don't get to see each other very often, but we always enjoy ourselves when we do get together.
