Does this look good to you? It looked amazing to me.
This is from Piscis Seafood restaurant (the old Fonziez). We finally tried it the other day.

My wife ordered the shrimp-stuffed empanada (pictured). I never saw a seafood stuffed empanada... but it was great...

Donatation Box at PAWS
Originally uploaded by seanclaes
Since we're pretty sure we're done having kids, I took 3 boxes of clothes, shoes, and stuff to the PAWS clothing drop box.

PAWS is Kyle's Animal Shelter.

But they collect stuff for humans too.

What's in a name?

I remember back in college when I used to wash my clothes in a laundromat. I sure don't miss those days.

Here's one of Kyle's laundromats... it's fancy... a washateria!

There are many different varities of the Crepe Myrtle. I really digg this tree, it smells amazing and it looks fantastic.

It'd have to be my favorite tree/bush/flower combo ever!

Here's more information on the Crepe Myrtle from a 2005 San Antonio Express News article:

This is the Spencer Thomas Band ( playing the Lucky Cup Coffee Shop in Kyle on Friday. It was a fun night.
If you look close at the right... you'll see the mannequin (provided by Lynn Wilkerson of Great Big Signs []) that sparked a slightly odd conversation with my 4 year old... as to what it was, and why someone would want a "great big doll to dress up."

Like I said.. it was a fun night.

Kyle United Methodist New Life Center - #13 in the series.

Those who have been here a while know I've been kind of documenting the construction of the Kyle United Methodist Church's New Life Center. This is photo is the 14th in the series. It's hard to believe it's been 3 months since my last update. See number 12 in the series by following this link.

There's been some hiccups in the building plans... but things are getting back on track.. the fence is complete and we've got the big windows in now. Cool. Here's the new update...

Oh.. and here it is in relation to the church.

I ate at Fox's Pizza Den in Kyle this past Friday.
Really good food... Amazingly friendly and nice staff.
They gave each of my kiddos free take-home cups... spent time explaining the menu to us (they've got pizza, lasagna, hoagies, stromboli, and something they call a wedgie.

Get a wedgie.
That's funny.

Actually my daughter's favorite thing is the breadsticks. They're like a football-shaped pizza cut into sticks... yum.

Digging a Water Feature

Digging a Water Feature
Originally uploaded by seanclaes
Near the Hays Performing Arts Center at the corner of 1626 and Kohlers Crossing, this will be a large-seized water feature. There's a good chance (crossing my fingers) that the Kyle Library may be moving to this area. It's inside the Plum Creek neighborhood.

Slow Children...

I've always thought this should say "Drive Slow" because it's not nice to label neighborhood children.

I also think THIS sigh should say "SLOW Fire Hydrant"

Neatly tucked on the Mantel with care...

Originally uploaded by seanclaes
Again.. the model home version of things on the mantel above the fireplace.

I don't have a fireplace... but my shelves look like stacks of books/papers/knick-nacks... not neat artwork-looking stuff.

Oh.. sometimes I wished I lived in a model home. Such class.. such beauty.

Of course... the food is plastic.
