We spent last weekend in Dallas. A three-hour drive for us. Just a quick family getaway.
Travel snacks: coconut water, smoked almonds, fig bars.
Our first destination was Legoland in Grapevine. Start singing now, because you know you want to.
"EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!"
The mini-Dallas made entirely of Legos was super cool.
Cowboy Stadium, Tony's favorite part of course.
There were various statues for the kids to pose with, like this Chima dude.
And also some sweet murals that glowed under black light.
It's not just a Lego museum, though. There was plenty of hands-on play for Jackson and Olivia. I appreciated that there were different areas that appealed to both kids. Jackson just wanted to build.
Olivia was more interested in the rides, and karaoke.
They both spent the majority of their time in the playhouse, building with the oversized bricks.
We spent about four hours at Legoland. Could've stayed longer, but we were starving and didn't want to eat in their cafe. Not when Spiral Diner was an option!
Chili-dusted chips and salsa.
I'm so glad Sessions is vegan. It's probably my favorite beer.
I had the Cowboy BBQ burger. This was my first time trying a Spiral Diner veggie burger! I went with the quinoa-cashew patty, which was falling-apart tender. The burger was topped with BBQ sauce, mustard, and bacon. I chose potato salad as my side. It was all amazing. I cleaned my plate.
Tony started with a blue plate special, the gumbo. It was nice and spicy, with big chunks of okra and meaty sausage.
He also had the Sweet Luv'Us Hummus Wrap, filled with sweet potato, hummus, broccoli, pecans, and tahini dressing. Pesto pasta salad on the side. The wrap didn't look super filling, but Tony assured me that it was a good hearty meal when paired with the gumbo.
Olivia went with the spaghetti and meatballs.
Jackson, pumped for the arrival of his grilled cheese sandwich, expresses the excitement we all felt to be eating at our fave vegan restaurant.
Tomorrow, sloths and manatees! Whaaaat?
