Now that summer has officially drawn to a close, and we are well into autumn, I’ve been looking for fun activities for my daughter. Going out to eat is a special treat she enjoys, but she can be finicky with her eating habits. One place we can rely on is IHOP for pancakes, so this past Friday, we went to the location in Jenkintown, PA, which is just a few miles up the road. Who would have thought that we would have stumbled upon some autumn fun as a part of our dining experience? With Halloween approaching, IHOP is offering a special for children under twelve to decorate their own scary face pancake, which Quinn was very eager to do. As this activity put a smile on her face, it put smiles her father’s face and mine too because, as a bonus, the meal is free on Fridays for children. She knew exactly how she wanted to design her scary face pancake and was even hesitant to eat it because she didn’t want to destroy its face. We even took a portion of it home, and she sadly exclaimed, “Oh no! My pancake’s scary face is ruined! Can we make another?” Of course, I am happy to oblige and looking forward to making some more scary face pancakes in the days and weeks to come.
All the best,
