Steeplechase Park and Plum Creek Clean-Up
This was one of the four kids I dragged with me to this important event. This one is my own spawn, but two other sets of parents let me subject their offspring to three hours of mist and filth to get this delicate hydrological area spiffed up. The head of a watershed is a spot in which all the drainage of a region eventually finds itself. And Plum Creek is an especially beautiful watershed, host to a delicate ecosystem and the subject of the first official watershed protection program approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. To me, it is the creek where my children hold races with leaf boat and count waterbugs and explore surface tension break when they whack the creek with sticks. To me, this is home.

Chris Halenza from Lone Star Kettle Corn makes a new batch of Kettle Corn at the Java Cup grand opening. I could quite possibly eat Kettle Corn every day. It's one of the best things in life... and Lone Star makes is right.
Try it yourself.... come out to Kyle Market Days this Saturday and getcha some. Oooh.. it's also the Fajita Fiesta!

Now that Kyle has moved the exit to 1626/HEB Plus! back about a mile (which is going to make someone who owns a bunch of land really rich because by doing that you just created a mile of retail space) I drive by this building every day. It's the Foulkrod building.
Foulkrod Custom Drywall, Inc
3080 Kyle Crossing

Of course, I've always read the sign as "Foulk Road" and thought it'd be a great name/place for a bluegrass / Americana / folk club. Kyle really needs a dedicated dance hall / bar.
But that's just me.

This is the beverage choice from a new Mexican fast food restaurant in town... "Su Taco" (this is their Yelp). I found out this place is owned by the same family as another Mexican food place in Kyle, the Mexican Seafood place, Piscis (whom I featured a few years ago).
I'm looking forward to a nice cold glass of Horchata sometime soon.

They make pie.
What is why.
You can't sigh when you've got pie.
I tell no lie. Not to girl nor guy.
You can't help but smile when You get pie.
That is why I dare to defy this post, oh my.
To share the pie that does lie in the city of Ky... le.
(All apologies and respect to Dr. Suess on his birthday)
See this Pie on Center Street when you come into downtown Kyle, Texas.

The Kyle United Methodist Church Co-Ed Kickball team, PRAY BALL, has been playing in the Kyle Parks and Recreation Department's Adult Kickball League for the last 6 seasons. We've had some amazing times being able to hang out with some great people and praise God while playing a kids game.
This is our logo:
The Spring 2011 season is starting this Friday. PRAY BALL has a new team (we change out about 1/2 of our members each season) and a game at 9:30p. Hope you can join us... if not this Friday then maybe one of the other season games.
Here's our schedule
