Description

It made for a perfect picture, except for one detail: The dishes seemed to already be clean. What's more, no one at the soup kitchen was dirtying more dishes or in need of serving because breakfast was over by the time the Ryans arrived. Why let a few pesky details get in the way of a good shot?
