A Mid-Summer NIght Classic

I remember my first drive in. Begging my parents to take me to KING KONG. And finally getting the go ahead and grabbing our pillows. Dressing in our jammies. Air so thick of anticipation of not knowing what to anticipate.
Cars gradually filling up the weedy gravel lot. Noticing the site looks about 100 years old (that was back in '77), but it didn't matter to the masses to would pull up to the best spot they can find. Then that was your spot. Your spot WAS the best spot.
Very very memorable.
I hope last night is going to be just as memorable and largely imprinted in Emma's mind as much as it was mine. I sure will remember our time last night forever.

The site (Not like the "site" pumpers refer to):

The "THREE" of them in the back (yes you can read between the lines on that one, and I'm not including the care bears in that statement):

Me, yes genuinely happy because of the the the fact the Simpson's movie is starting once that darn sun goes down (Emma happy because shewas just dosed down from 23 (414) and feeling much better:


Oh was Emma's first full week/full days at her "Big Girl Daycare".

It has been quite the adjustment. Not only because of her her new days but because of her new days of her pancreas not producing any insulin at all. So as we are thrusted into another phase of her management we are presented with a tonne of variables that we have just been reading, and hearing about since last September. So much to say and report on. So other than missing my cutoff for my sports picks i am looking forward to mustering up a post about this soon.

Thanks for listening/reading.

Take care!!

I was wondering when you were going to make your big announcement!!!! Congratulations once again :) I couldn't be more happier for your family - Emma is going to be a terrific big sister. This new little one is coming into a loving family. You two are awesome parents :)

Ahhh drive - in's. So? How was Homer on the big screen? I'm taking the kids up to Flin Flon this week (leaving later on today as Vince is working) and they have a drive in up there. I grew up going to drive ins and I really REALLY want to take them to the one up there - but I have no clue what's playing this week (will have to check it out). Ah, memories of stuffing friends into the trunks of our cars .... - glad to see they didn't stuff you into the trunk ... well, vans don't have trunks .... ok - going off topic here.

Looks like you guys had fun :)

I hope you're able to get some stability with Emma's numbers. I'm having one heck of a battle wtih Dani right now - I could just cry. I'm just so down with it all right now (I get like this from time to time). Last night was a real rough one for me/her/ all of us. Doesn't help that I'm sleep deprived. I get weepy/emotional when that happens.

I'm sure in the next bit here we'll figure something out. Have you talked to the clinic since we last saw you? This disease is one endless frustration.

Anyhow - big hugs to Denise and give that baby a belly rub for me :) Hugs to Emma too for all she goes through every day. Hang in there - you both are doing great.

Everyone's having babies. It's making me a bit broody.

When I first looked at this post no one had commented yet. I thought you were saying that Denise was pregnant, but I didn't want to say anything for fear that she wasn't and I'd just put my foot in my mouth.

It took me a few days because I kept counting the Care Bears, despite being told not to.

I'm so happy for you guys! Chris and I send our congrats. :)

Congratulations! Wonderful news. Emma looks like a sweetie and I bet she will be a really wonderful big sister.

Ying and yang....congrats on the new to end of honeymoon.

If Emma is this cute, I can't wait to see what the new baby looks like. Denise looks awesome.

I love drive ins and have great memories from back in the day as well (good ole 70's). Being in my PJ's and hanging out the back of my dad's VW "Hippie" Bus.
