We are touring the southwestern national parks with our children and grandchildren. Our dining experience last night in Cortez, Colorado was less than wonderful. We waited for what seemed like forever for our pizza, and the little children were approaching meltdown.

Our pizza finally arrived and we ate. We adults were frazzled, but as we were leaving, our eight-year-old granddaughter said, “I would like to find the waitress and thank her for serving us such delicious food.”

I think the socializing process under her attentive parents is working!
