"We're on Day 6 with the t:slim and so far we're very happy. Last Friday one of my daughter's non type 1 friends saw her new pump and said "that is so cool...I want one." The touch screen is very easy to use. It’s nice…"

Hi Darell! Beautiful family and thanks for recommending this site, I am enjoying it very much!!!

I love Lupi! That place is so cute! And La Playa....we'll just let that one slide :) How fun that you and the family hang out at Mission - I am not super familiar with that area, I grew up in La Jolla and now spend most of my time in LJ, PB, or North County where I have a lot of friends. But Mission is great to get down to in the summer time, especially for the holidays like 4th of July and Labor Day - you can't beat the people watching! Well I do hope you make it to Barbarella when you get back here in 2010!

Darell that's so funny - you must have had La Jolla on the brain! Mission is a great running spot - I am training for the AFC half marathon so I have been hitting up the boardwalk path frequently. You know what's even funnier? I went to Orlando for the first time this year! I was there in March for work, and had a great time. Hope you and the family make it out to La Jolla again soon - but no Crab Catcher this time - my family has a restaurant called Barbarella that you have to check out next time :)

Yeah the bike trails and walking trails are great around here! I'm hoping to get out riding soon myself! Living in Florida must be nice though! ;)

Great choice of Kayak! I hear Cobra Tandem is light weight and easier to maneuver. Have fun now and be safe.

That's GREAT! 5.4 with few lows is perfect!! Good reason to celebrate!!

I faced some "burnout" in the last few months and lost control of my blood sugars. But I got back into good habits and I'm working hard to stay there. I haven't gone over 140 in the last 3 days. I'm hoping for an A1c under 6 at my next endo visit!!

My husband and I would like to start a family next year... so under 6 is the place to be! Hope that Hannah can keep such great blood sugars!

Beautiful pictures of the kids! Is Hannah's A1c really 5.4?!? Or is that yours ;) ?
