Texas was nice. Yeah, we got back almost a whole week ago, but I've been too busy to post about it. That's a blatant lie, of course, but I really have no other excuse. Anyway, I can't say it was the most exciting vacation ever, but Danielle got to meet almost all my family, and we got to see the new babies. Everybody loved Danielle, and Danielle definitely loved the twins. We had a good time, overall.

The highlight of the trip was probably the meal at Fogo de Chão, where they served us fifteen kinds of meat until we were stuffed like a turkey on Thanksgiving. I won't bore you with all the details because I'm sure you read all about it from the last time I went there.

That's all I have to say about that.

Oh, but you can check out this pic:

Soooo... what else has been happening lately? We've pretty much settled into our usual routine since getting back from Texas. But our usual routine is going through a few tweaks here and there. We have a few planned home improvement projects for inside and outside the apartment, we're implementing some kind of budget to establish some sort of savings for the future, and we're being a little more careful about what we're eating. So before you know it we're going to be thin and wealthy and happy. A little change is good now and then, right?

We went and saw The Goo Goo Dolls and Bon Jovi at Arco Arena last Thursday. That was definitely more fun than I'd bargained for. We were seated in one of the sky box dealies. There was a whole bunch of appetizer type food, popcorn, sodas and a private bathroom. Little Brian even treated us to a couple cocktails. It was such a good time that we have vowed to go and see more live music this year. Next on our list is probably the Journey, REO Speedwagon and Styx extravaganza coming to Arco in May. For my money, it doesn't get much better than that lineup. To see bands that huge you usually have to go to some upscale venue like the county fair.

Yesterday was Easter, so we wend to Danielle's Great Aunt's house in Gilroy, California, the bona fide garlic capital of the world. We took the new car for its first road trip, about 175 miles each way. It was the usual Easter routine. We had ham and stuff. Danielle and I had to sit at the kiddie table, but on her mother's side of the family most of the kiddies are not a lot younger than us. Old people are boring anyway.

Speaking of my new car, I still haven't named it... or her... or whatever. There were some good nominated names, but why don't I give you one more chance to submit an entry before I narrow it down and put it to a final vote.
