Crayons and paper are a permanent fixture in my bag, and I always let them take a book along to our dinner venue, to while away the waiting time. Eating out with kids can be a real challenge. They can’t sit still, talk loudly, and drop food everywhere. Too often, I find myself saying “Let’s finish our food quickly, and we can all go and get some ice cream.” Which family friendly restaurants do you like to eat at?
