Lunch for Nine at Bob Evans

Good morning,

We had a grand time with the grand kids at lunch at Bob Evans.  My son and wife have six children, but only five are pictured because the eldest daughter was at a friend's home. 
Still, with five kids, two parents, and two grand parents we were able to clear Bob Evans.  No, not really.  We arrived at 1:30 PM for a late lunch.  There was a family with lots of kids just finishing at the next table so we were in good company.  ;)
Mom and Dad had everything under control and all the kids were happy with crayons and drinks when I got up to take pictures.  The kids were extremely well behaved and having fun with each other.  That's me behind the camera. 
Everyone posed nicely for Grandma until Grandpa began to help with some action shots.
That's when it all broke loose and everyone...
 ...got into the action.  Guess who was the instigator!  ;)
 And, Isaac demonstrated his spoon trick.  He can't seem to smile and keep that spoon there at the same time, but trust me, he has a beautiful smile! 

 We all had so much fun.  Even the wait staff was part of the action.

 Grand kids are so much fun!

;),
Lois

It may have all 'broke loose' with Grandpa's action, but it still looks like a fairly calm riot to me! You must miss all your cute grandkids while away. Empty restaurants are fun!

I can just imagine who instigated all that. . . and she was behind the camera!!! Looks like a fun time.

Your family must be so happy to have you home for a little while. They will have such good memories of grandparents who are fun to be with.

I'm back! Delighted to read this post, such fun you all must have together. What a lovely family you have. And isn't it a grandfather's job to instigate "trouble"? I admire Isaac's spoon abilities!
