Austin Toros

We got the hook up on some free tickets the the Austin Toros vs. the Idaho Stampede game. We love going to the Cedar Park center because every seat in the house is a good one. We received an added bonus of getting to see Antoine Walker of NBA fame on the Idaho team.

Garden of Eden - March 2011

This year we decided to plant less plants to see if we could yield more vegetables during harvest. I marked each picture with the type of vegetables that we planted. The boys each help plant the green bean seeds and some of the other plants.

We jumped in the car and headed to southeast Austin to the Fair and Rodeo with the boys.......the boys had the funnest time at the petting zoo. No trip would be complete with out purchasing an $8 funnel cake!

What Was Old Is New Again

When we were first married Tara picked out a dining set that included white padded chairs and they were beautiful until we had kids.....after kool-aid spills, torn plastic and crayon marks, we decided to cover the chairs with some $8 covers from Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

The covers looked decent, if you can get into a sort of lime green theme in your kitchen.

I did some searching and found a local upholstery shop in Round Rock by the name of Mr. Stitch. He recommended that we use Marine Vinyl so that it would have the look and feel of Pleather, but hold up to three growing boys!

He did a wonderful job on the chairs and now they complement the dining set we have in the formal living room. I am sort of mad at myself becuase I did not take a before picture of what they chairs looked like with and without the covers so you can make a comparison.

Lucky Number 7

For our anniversary this year, I was able to break away from work and take my lovely bride of seven years to our favorite spot for lunch.....Fogo de Chao
