do you give the horse his strength, or clothe his neck with a flowing mane... he laughs at fear, afraid of nothing.... in frenzied excitement he eats up the ground, he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds (job 39)
199. dinner at nanni's. nanni is sicilian & has the chops in the kitchen to prove it. she makes a spread that could feed the neighborhood. we always leave with a trunk full of the best leftovers you've ever eaten! hanks' dinner was: veggie lasagna, breaded eggplant, sausage & peppers, bread, sauteed zucchini, lemonade & ice-cream.
198. late night shopping.whenever we are on a date we always end up at: target, the walmart or albertsons for a spell, (much to michael's chagrin). in my defense, i have to make the most of my time "away". so, michael followed suit & made the most of the time too... he dropped me off, parked the car & came cruising in (scowl intact).
for preschool i made 2 chocolate cakes & in all hank's 3 year old wisdom & glory, he took chunks out of both.... the result? one cake & a load of frosting.
his birthday morning started with a family breakfast party... eggs, ginormous cinnamon rolls & juice. he got some toy story loot & off to disneyland we went: we danced, ate at pizza port, drove cars, flew rockets, shot lasers, met an abominable snowman, found ourselves in the middle of a pirate shoot out & had a very scary confrontation with a giant gorilla in a rainforest.
