Weekend in Kerrville & D's fondue 7th

Last weekend we headed to Kerrville and brought some of our good friends with us.  Our old neighbors, the Allsops, joined us on the trip.  They know my in laws plenty well but it's been a while since they were in Kerrville.
 We got there Friday around 11am then headed out for lunch around noon.  Great photo op with everyone and my FIL's new canary yellow Velostar!
 Our first try at lunch, Camp Verde, was booked and there was an hour wait!  Doesn't anybody in this town work?!?  ha!  We had to try another place, Comanche Trace at the top of a hill.  It's a beautiful golf club and they have a restaurant/ bar at the top.
 Dominic had Aunt Bru and MeMe sit down on each side of him so they could watch him play soccer on his DS.
 Friday evening Uncle Eric fried up his famous chicken wings using the Nanny Moe's spice Aunt Bru created.  Keep a look out for this spice, it's delish!
 Me and my baby.  Someone else actually got behind the camera!
 Saturday was a bit cold and rainy so we got out for a little bit before returning home.  We decided when we were back in Houston that we would have a little surprise fondue birthday dinner for Dominic. He did not like any birthday ideas I presented him with this year and since we are in the apartment we can't have a big party so he said just doing something fun with mommy and daddy would be fine.  That is still to come as we get closer to his birthday in a few weeks....
 His Daddy took him outside to play some soccer so we could quickly set up the table, put out a birthday banner and a balloon.
 Surprise!  He was like, "YES! Fondue!"  He loves fondue and he took the surprise really well!
 I tried something different this time and sauteed mushrooms, onions, garlic and carrots before tossing into the wine/ broth mix for fondue. We used to use oil but have tried healthier approaches.

 After dinner we had another surprise, a soccer cake!  My in laws ordered it and picked it up that day while we were running around in our car.  My MIL's birthday was the 5th so we added a butterfly and I tried to write "and MeMe" in white icing so we surprised her too!
 MeMe and my not so little guy, Dominic.  Happy 7th sweet boy.
 Uncle Eric and Aunt Bru got him a portable soccer goal!
 MeMe and Papa got him cash and some shirts!
And Daddy and I got him opening day Dynamo tickets for starters!
