Lunch And Other Ramblings

Sorry for my absence from the bloggy world, but you know how life does that sometimes! So, just a few photos of my posse while out to lunch at a yummy Mexican restaurant called Lime:

Tuesday the kids had a day off of school due to Rosh Hashanah, so I dropped Lindsay and her BFF, Sierra, off at a Church Youth Group function held at a huge amusement place. Thank goodness our Youth Ministry had this function planned, as it was a horrid, dark and VERY rainy day, and this was the perfect thing for the kids to do on such a wet day. Sierra ran out of the frame of my picture (you can see her tush exiting stage right! LOL), but Lindsay knows me and knew it was pointless to protest. So, being a good sport she posed for a couple of shots while standing in a steady drizzle. :-)

OK...about this shot. There is a Park right next to Lindsay and Chris' school. The county just recently installed an incredible baseball field that was made specifically for children with disabilities (notice there is no grass, but instead there is a surface that is walker and wheelchair friendly). Well, the other day as I was picking up the kiddos after school I happened to notice that some new banners featuring companies who are sponsoring the park had recently been hung on the fence in the outfield (which obviously isn't too far 'out'). I was struck with the contrast between the two banners: Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital (an excellent children's hospital, and where Livie had her most recent MRI and EEG...I can't say enough wonderful things about the care Livie received there!) and HOOTERS?!?! Now, I am not saying anything negative about Hooters. In fact, I have been known to partake in a bucket of crab legs and a pitcher of beer there myself. What made me crack up is the oddity of having Hooters banner hanging on the outfield fence of a Children's Special Needs baseball field. Maybe I am the only one?

Love the pictures! I can't get over how grown up Lindsay is!
I wonder if these kids at the park even know what "Hooters" is?
