By Popular Demand

I have been MIA for a bit. Jackson was on Fall Break last week, and we have been busy eating our way through the Valley. No seriously, the kid and I can eat!

Here's what this family has been up to lately:

Two weeks ago we had the craziest hail I have EVER SEEN in my life. I have never seen anything like it. I was driving to pick up Tyler, and I had to pull over a gas station awning because the hail was the size of golf balls. It was beating down on my car and scaring the crap out of me. The hail wasn't the size of golf balls by my house, but I took some pictures of the massive amounts of hail we had! The quality is not the best because it was my cell phone, but you can get the idea.

We also celebrate Tyler's 4th birthday this past weekend. She wanted everything Hannah Montana, and on your birthday, your wish is my command. We also hit the horse races that day per her request! She was one very happy little girl!

Wednesday I took Jackson to his first tasting at Z'Tejas. We were tasting the winter menu. It was a little spicy for him, but he was a trooper and tried everything. I was so proud.

Thursday I took him to Cracker Barrel for breakfast as a reward for behaving so well at the tasting. His meal cost ten dollars, and I couldn't even complain because he ate the whole thing. I learned my lesson though, and we won't be returning to Cracker Barrel for a while. I am NOT a fan of their combination plates. I had to add a bunch of stuff on and it ended up being rather expensive. BUT, the hashbrown casserole is just SO GOOD THERE! Mmmmmm!

This past weekend was very dull, but it was exactly what I needed.

This last picture is just because I thought it was funny. My sister and I were driving to lunch one day, and this thing was just standing on the corner by her house. WEIRD!
