They've got a great new shirt at the shop too that says "Watch Me Kick & Watch Me Nay Nay" that is pretty fantastic. :)

Lucas Cook Performs at Concerts For A Cause 4/2/16

Lucas Cook performs as the first 2016 Concerts For A Cause at Down South Railhouse

On April 2, 2016 Concerts For A Cause kicked off their 2016 season with a benefit for Hays County ECI/Homespun at Down South Railhouse.

The show was from 5-8p (5-6 - Joey Alba / 6-8 - Lucas Cook)

ECI assures that families with young children with developmental delays have the resources and support they need to reach their goals.

Research shows that growth and development are most rapid in the early years of life. The earlier problems are identified, the greater the chance of eliminating them. Early intervention responds to the critical needs of children and families by:

  • promoting development and learning,
  • providing support to families,
  • coordinating services, and
  • decreasing the need for costly special programs.

No Bull.

Family Portrait - 3/16

We ventured out to the Longhorn pasture next to the Hyundai dealership in Kyle for Bluebonnet photos (you can see them in the background. and ended up taking a family portrait with the statues.

Weather and upkeep hasn't been their friends over the years... but they are still pretty darned cool.

This is the same Longhorn I photographed in 2010 on this blog:

The Haystack - Milt's Pit BBQ


This beautiful piece of edible joy is from Milt's Pit BBQ (208 W Center St, Kyle, Texas 78640). It's called a Haystack. It's a BBQ frito pie (yes, there are Fritos under that pile) and it's quite possibly my favorite thing at Milt's. They also have great burgers (Anita's Chophouse Burger will change your day for the better) and their BBQ is on point.

Check them out tomorrow (because they're closed on Monday)
