Texas Update

I've been having a great time in Texas. I have been having breakfast picnics

(now don't laugh, don't you have M&M pajamas ; )

I've had some great meals at some interesting places--like Chuy's where they have a cool ceiling;

Rudy's--which has the most delicious barbeque. The brisket was superb.

So glad Macy and Lauren were able to join us for lunch.

The Mighty Cone where I had this yummy creation--chicken and avocado which were deep fried with a cornflake/nut/chili crust and was served in a tortilla cone and had a delicious spicy sauce and sat in a bed of coleslaw. It was also served with an order of chili fries (no the fries were not covered with chili but were salted with sea salt and chili powder It was all so incredibly tasty.

After that "light" meal, we walked a couple of trailers away to Hey Cupcake where little G-Man enjoyed his cupcake (no one was going to capture a picture of me with my face in my carrot cake cupcake with oodles of cream cheese frosting

And then I went to the Big Top candy store where I found the solution to my trying to eat 5 or 7 servings of vegetables on my challenges I'm doing. If I have this kind of "fruit salad" how many servings would it equal???? BTW, I may be stopped at the border when I try bring my stash of candy across.

It will be great fun to take Allan to some of these places when we come back when Lauren is blessed in March.

But by far the BEST part of the trip--hanging out with these little ones.
