Date Night

So, Saturday evening, Larry and I were able to go
on a much needed date.
Dates become rare when you have 5 kids
and live far from family.
Thank goodness for a wonderful
young woman who lives near by.

We started our date out with a movie that 
Larry has been dying to see.
I am not a trek fan, but I can say this movie
was actually enjoyable. 
And it actually had a humorous start.
When Larry and I went to the theater to purchase
our tickets, we noticed a balding, middle aged man
wearing a star trek uniform in the lobby.  At first we thought he was just
a theater worker wearing their uniform for the weekend.
When we noticed the ticket booth kids
not wearing the same snazzy outfit and giggling, we realized a serious trek 
fan was in our midst. 
This man was dressed to the hilt and had a
presentation board set up along
with life size cutouts of
Kirk and Spok. Can we say Coo coo?
I so wish I had a camera phone.

After the movie, Larry & I drove around looking for a
restaurant with little to no wait.
Not a bad thing unless it is saturday night
at 6 and a prom night to boot.
We decided to go to Fuddruckers, 
a known favorite when we came across Tripp's.
I am so glad we stopped!
We were sitted immediately and the
manager was actually making rounds greeting
his patrons.  Very welcoming atmosphere
and it passed my no TVs test.
Larry and I were able to have a wonderful
dinner with no distractions.

Can I just say, the food was absolutely fabulous!
I don't usually eat steaks, but opted for the filet mignon
and lobster tail.  It was delicious and this
restaurant has become a new favorite.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend as well.

Lobster and steak? I can see why that would be an immediate favorite!

Glad you guys got to go on a fun date!

A Young Man Turns 9

It is so hard to believe that my oldest boy turned 9 on Dec 30th. 9 years! Wow. We began our journey with little Larry at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD. My 17 week ultrasound had shown that I was carrying twins in which 1 twin had died just the week before. It was such devastating news. I remember lying there thinking do such things happen. The poor OB cried along with us. He honestly was not sure what the outcome would be for the living twin because it appeared the 2 babies shared a sac. Not only did they share a sac, but it also appeared the 2 might even be conjoined at the abdomen. Of course I went to a specialist who was able to determine the "syndrome." I really HATE that word. But my baby had what is known as OEIS Syndrome. Oomphalocoele, Exstrophy, Imperforate Anus, Spina Bifida. Wow. What is this and do such things really exist? Well, the specialist really only wanted to help us out in 1 way, abortion. He felt this child would never live a normal life. And yet he had never…

Beach Blanket Bingo

Last week we packed our bags and headed for Hilton Head Island. We had never been there before and heard rave reviews from quite a few friends.  Being just 5 hours from our house, how could we not look into it. Such a love affair between father and daughter. These two absolutely adore one another. My fearless Ethan.  He scared me too death because he was always out far from the beach and alone. He had absolutely no fear and was a pro on that little boogie board. Funny story, on our first day there,  Ethan had gotten out a little far and was alone so Larry Denzil went out to join him. Behind Ethan, Larry saw a fin peer up out of the water  in reaching distance and pulled Ethan to him. When he turned toward the shore, it was just a dolphin.  Whew!   I absolutely love this picture.  Ethan just sat in the shallow pool of water and did what looked like synchronized swimming.
Xander and Larry both boogie boardin' fools. Larry tried to hit dad up for a surf board. What was he thinking?  I can tell teen years …

One Last Summer Hurrah

Well, our saturday got off to a rocky start, but in the end, I think we all enjoyed ourselves.  We started the morning off by running a few quick errands.  On our way home, we stopped at the local Krispy Kreme and went to Carrier Park for breakfast.  While at the park, Larry and the kids did a little exploring and I found this neat tree.  Each kid was super excited to climb up and have their picture taken.  Xander was the first.  He had absolutely no fear and climbed up fairly high.  He was much higher than any other child.

This is my favorite picture of little Larry.  He just looks like such a man here.  He is really good at posing for shots too.  Can you tell I take hundreds of pictures of the kids because they instinctively know just how to pose.

We placed Ruby and Ethan up in the tree.  Both of them wanted down as soon as they were up. Ethan said he was too high.

Here is my beautiful Savannah.  She is growing so fast.

Ruby loved the tree once Daddy was in it with her. As a matter of fact,…
