“Daddy, I want to go there!”
Teddy pulled into the parking lot while Christine jumped eagerly up and down in the back seat. He liked the 50s vibe of the diner and hustled his eager family through the entrance to a corner booth.
“Let’s get milkshakes!”
“And fries, lots of them!”
Teddy smiled at his wife. Spending time together on their driving holiday had reconnected them all – especially as their mobile devices had been left at home. The stop was a perfect addition to their old-fashioned vacation.
The family noisily dived into their meal, their enthusiasm unhampered by selfies.
