Texas 2013 Day 6: Breakfast Tacos, Bakery, and Boots
This morning we headed to a great little hole-in-the-wall place called El Tejano #2, a very welcoming and low-key (but excellent) place for breakfast tacos. They were super cheap and super fantastic. We put some money in the jukebox and played some Mexican polka music and some Santana while having our awesome breakfast. I had Nopales and Egg, and Potato and Egg. Nopales is a vegetable made from the young pad segments of prickly pear (cactus). It was all very tasty.

First stop was a brand new Luchesse cowboy boot outlet. It was not quite set up yet but it looked amazing and we will probably come back there later in the week to get my cowboy boots. We then headed to Cavender's boots, where I got a pearl snap shirt, which is very Texan! There was a guy working there who was chatting with us a bit, and was wearing a hilariously awesome massive American flag pearl snap shirt... the stars and stripes literally emblazoned across the entire shirt. He was about our age, and asked Frank at one point where he was from. Frank said he had moved from Texas to California. Without skipping a beat, the guy responded, "Oh, I'm sorry!" with a total straight look on his face. It was priceless.

|Pretty cool options|
Back we went after that to the lake house and chilled there for a short while before heading back to Frank's parents' house for a nice long visit. We had a great time chatting, and I managed to get a hold of Grey-C the cat for a while and pet her for a bit. That cat is awesome.
|Haha, after the dinner we had tonight, I think this might be true|
