to assuage our disappointment we had lunch at cafe brazil. i had no idea there was one nearby in plano and we just happened upon this one. the food is seriously good, but don't take my word for it. check these boys out! they had already polished off their pancakes before i could whip the camera out!
john and i have some love history here. well, maybe some pre-love history at the university park location in dallas. we had coffee one late night with our friend julie and i can remember hoping that he would find me interesting. that location is the most fun because it rates high on the funkiness register. great people watching too!
when we came home, john decided to try and conquer our live oak in the front yard. you'll remember the HUGE snowstorm we had last week. well, despite john's best efforts to save our limbs from breaking, we still had quite a few succumb to the weight of the snow. here are the results.
and this is our sad little tree after the haircut.
it could have been much worse i suppose. and i'm just glad that john did not get hurt pulling all those limbs down. he had a neighbor helping (we have the BEST neighbors!) but there were a few close calls.
the rest of the evening was pretty low key...well if there is such a thing with 2 boys! ha!
