is this really bodacious?

So at 7AM Kristi came up to my place and we started our drive. We went through Pittsburgh and merged onto I-79 and at the Cranberry Twp. exit (right near the turnpike) we decided to take route 19 the rest of the way up to Volant, PA where we were meeting up with our friend Katie. Despite our tireness (Kristi and I are NOT morning people) we made our way north.
On the drive up we saw some interesting things that we just had to pull over an see (I love following old routes... you never Know what you'll see). First we see a restaurant... and on the sign it ways EAT... Hmmm I wonder if we're supposed to eat here.
We finally get to Katie's and head out to downtown Volant... which is just a street with some shops... to go to the Dumplin Haus for breakfast, where Katie insists they have the best cinnamon buns; I'll be the judge of that because I love cinnamon buns... yum yum! We go in and it's a quaint little restaurant with cute little table clothes and older women in there for their sunday brunch in their Sunday best. It looked like something from Martha Stewart. But we sit down and I look at the menu... which I'm assuming would be something like the dinnor they go to in "My cousin Vinny" in Alabama where they try to decide what to get and their choices are breakfast, lunch or dinner! Ha Ha Ha! Well, I end up getting a breakfast sandwhich to go with the small sticky bun... they are all out of larges (sigh) thinking that the small wouldn't be enough food! Well, let me just tell you it came out and the small sticky bun was the size of the plate and so was the breakfast sandwhich... good thing I had a while for lunch as it was only 10AM!
The rest of the way up to Erie we decide to take I-79 as we told Theresa we'd be there at noon and it was already 11AM and it takes a little over an hour to get there! So no more funny stories of bizzarreness on the side of the road!
