With Hurricane Ian out of our lives and everyone in the house healthy again, the desire to get out of the house and have a nice dinner was high for at least two of us. Miles, thankfully, was at least tolerant of our outing to Full Moon Oyster Bar in Concord, where Jaclyn and I … Continue reading Year 5, Day 218
Miles has never seen Pee-wee's Big Adventure. AND YET, when he heard "Tequila" by The Champs, he knew what he had to do. https://videopress.com/v/0u04ICLD?resizeToParent=true&cover=true&preloadContent=metadata&useAverageColor=true Even when he's in the middle of a Mexican restaurant and the floor is covered in rainwater.
When Jaclyn asked if we could go out for Japanese Hibachi food tonight, I was quick to answer "Yes," assuming right up to the moment we pulled up to the restaurant that we were talking an "Express Hibachi" place.

Their plan had been to go to Pinky's one of our favorite local spots (and one of Guy Fieri's as well). And while they did eat at Pinky's, Miles was evidently less … Continue reading Year 2, Day 333
We made a pit stop in Rock Hill on our way to Myrtle Beach for the Thanksgiving holiday. The initial reason for this detour was to see our friend Alex, in town from Denver, but an additional reason got tacked on yesterday -- I had to fill in as host for a trivia show. This … Continue reading Year 2, Day 275
Testing the limits of how far away from us we'll let him walk during brunch this morning.
Yesterday, Miles tried meat for the first time. Today, he's perusing the menu at our favorite Mexican place. Talk about progress!
