Flying DinerPosted: June 6, 2012 | Author: Jena | Filed under: Community, Developmental Themes, Field Trip, playing with our food, Tradition | 1 Comment »
Going out to breakfast is one of our little thrills in life.
The boys love it and I get a break from the kitchen.
There are a couple places we rotate through…
Sunburst Cafe for their muffins and fresh fruit cups, Coffee House for it’s extraordinary coffee, Auntie Annie’s for it’s playground.
A favorite local haunt for us is Jim’s Flying Diner, open seasonally and open for breakfast and lunch 6 days a week and for dinner 2 days. The diner serves your regular greasy spoon menu, with a very cool bonus of eating on the back porch that faces a small airport landing strip.
On a beautiful day, you can see small planes take off and land.
We often take weekend guests to this airport / diner. They are impressed by the quaint, simple pairing. Pilots land their planes, walk into the diner for a quick meal, and take off again to their next destination.
Sometimes, we meet friends for breakfast in the midweek. Our loud, rambunctious group sits on the porch, filling the space with wild, scrape kneed toddlers, eating eggs, pancakes and toast…We sit next to the hummingbird feeders. The hummingbirds are somehow not too scared off by our energy.
