This morning, we took the family to Spiral Diner in Ft. Worth.
For those of you who don't know, it is a vegan restaurant, the food is pricy, but it is worth it because it is GOOD. Everything they serve is organic, most is local grown and everything is vegan. We don't go there often because it is like an hour drive from us, and like I said it is kinda pricy when you are a family of our size. But today we decided to splurge, every Sunday they do all you can eat pancakes for $5.95, so we hopped in the car this morning and headed to Ft. Worth. When we got there the line took forever, but after about 45 minutes of waiting, we finally got to sit down (same table we always seem to get...hmmm. Seeing as we went to have pancakes, that would be what you would think we would order right? Nope, Sierra and Ella got the pancakes, Tae got broccoli and tofu, Jimmy got a nut burger, Haley got a portabello patty melt burget and I got a portabello burger. So good!!! Just not enough of it, but it wasn't as bad as we thought it was going to be. So since we were already it Ft. Worth we decided that since it was such a beautiful day, that we would go to the Botanical Gardens, after all they were only like 5 minutes away, and it is much better than being cooped up in the house.
So we piled into the car and headed to the Botanical Gardens. It was a great choice. The fall colors were absolutely breathtaking.
Have you ever seen an evergreen tree not be green???
Sierra had to pose for this one, she picked which flower she wanted to smell in the picture
Ella wanted to smell the purple one because it was my favorite color.
Trying to get some good pics of the girls
I snuck this one when Haly wasn't looking
Sierra took a family picture, not bad for a 4 year old
After the Botanical Gardens we went to Coldstone Creamery and got some ice cream and then came home. All in all today was a great day, no one took any phone calls (our phones were dead most of the day thanks to the newest iPhone update, and I am curerntly downloading what is supposed to fix it, hopefully it will because my battery is dying like crazy and I know I am not using it THAT much), and we just had a great family day. Sometimes that is so needed, we get so busy in our day to day lives with work, ministry, school, housework that we forget how important it is to work on our family life. Without our family life, nothing else matters. It needs attention too, and I am so glad that we did that, it was needed. So now the kids are in bed, Jimmy is on the computer in the office, I am finishing this up and then, I just might watch a scary movie (since all of my tv shows were reruns last week :( so I don't need to catch up on them) all by myself and pig out on some veggie straws (sooo good get them if you can find them). Night all, see you soon!
