Wednesday October 28, 2009

Here I am after my very busy day, able to work in some blog time. Summer is outside playing and Toby is occupied otherwise.

Not really much blog worthy happened yesterday but I did want put in a good word for a new restaurant we sampled. First, let me say that I have never been a Chinese food lover...or any Asian sort of food other than my sister-in-laws spring rolls.

That is until lately. Last week we ate at the China Center and had a delicious meal. Yesterday we tried a new establishment in North A. named HoHo Chinese BBQ. Now does that sound gross or what?? The restaurant has been there a few months but I could never bring myself to eat there because of the name. Somehow yummy Texas barbecue and Chinese food in the same sentence does not appeal to me.

Somewhere along the way I saw a good review of it. I decided it was worth a try. The word I will use to describe my meal is scrumptious! Summer was impressed with the tanks full of live sea creatures and the whole (heads, bills and all) roasted bbq ducks hanging up...hence, where the term BBQ must have came from.

Today after my early morning grocery store trip, we headed to Mayfield Park and Preserve. Since we had a late start in our day, we were searching for a new destination to explore that was close to home. I could have sworn we had never been there before but once we got there and started walking the trails I came to the conclusion that TOBY WAS RIGHT , we had been there before.

On a whim, we decided to take Brandi. I always feel like she might like to get out and explore sometimes too. Maybe not though...

Here are some picture highlights of our day:

These pretty yellow daisies are blooming all over central Texas:

White Peacocks chillin' on the porch:

I don't think Brandi liked the idea of going down the steps into the creek bed:

Look! We now have a little water back in our creeks! Summer and I had to take our flip flops off and wade through the mud....thank goodness for flip flops. :-)

After we left the park we had to swing by Home Depot. Here is Summer and Brandi riding in the germ-ridden car buggy:

As of this moment, tomorrow is a mystery.
