A few weeks ago . . .
DD: "Mom, can we go to Atlanta (Georgia) for vacation this summer??"
Me: "We just got back from Atlanta last month - why do you want to go this summer?"
DD: "I want to go back to that place where we got our picture made. You know, that Japanese place?"
DD: "Yeah! That place! I want to go back there and eat!!"
Me: "You know, most bigger towns have a Benihana. Maybe we can go to one in Indy sometime soon. We don't need to go all the way back to Atlanta for that."
DD: "Will the one in Indy have that same kind of ice cream?"
Me: "I don't know but I'll bet it's just as good."
She thinks for awhile.
DD: "Will they have those same kind of little umbrellas? I LOVE those little umbrellas!"
Me: "I'm sure they have those little umbrellas!"
Note: DD holding one umbrella and wearing another in her hair!
Sometimes it doesn't take much to make 'em happy! (Of course, the sushi and hibachi shrimp didn't hurt either!)
