The experience Dr. Mom would be working this evening so it would be up to me to take Mina to Hula class in Garland with Benji in tow.  I got off a to a start at my regular time only to find lines of cars on my usual route.  I took a few ill-advised shortcuts [...]

Lunch at The Original

The experience I had the afternoon off today and we’ve been wanting to take the kids to Fort Worth.  One of our favorite places to go is the Japanese Gardens at the Fort Worth Arboretum.  We were actually up and going early enough to head out there.  Of course, a trip to Fort Worth typically [...]

The experience Today is extremely busy for us.  Started early with hula class followed by a birthday part y for Mina’s friend and then we needed to get home to nap before the circus tonight!  So this meant we needed to eat somewhere quick, close and easy!  Ogre’s suggestion: Taco Delite.  He has been trying [...]

The experience Ogre wanted to try Carolina’s, the restaurant that has taken the place of Mario’s Chiquita on 75 over by Chuy’s.  Sounded like a great plan to me.  We all loaded up and headed over.  The kids were excited about it as we drove up to the restaurant until they realized we were NOT [...]

The experience Ogre was finishing up lawn work (we have an acre) and as he was finishing up, I found out that I had an admission to see at the hospital.  We decided it would be the best plan to eat in Rowlett so I could head over to the hospital right after dinner and [...]

The experience Ogre and Dusty had a business meeting over in Addison, so we decided it would be easiest if we met out there for dinner when they were finished with their meeting.  Ogre told me he’d call before 6:30 to let me know what the deal was, and not surprisingly, he called at about [...]

The experience I was Mina’s chauffeur again this evening driving a ways to her hula class.  Ogre and I decided we’d meet after her class and thought that our plan a couple weeks ago to meet halfway would work again, so we decided on the El Chico right by the Bone Daddy’s we went to [...]

The experience So today I’d be going alone to dinner after taking Mina to her hula class.  Benji would be along for the ride. Grace claimed there were no restaurants in the area so I figured I be out of luck eating near the class.  On the ride over I saw about 10 restaurants to [...]

The experience My partner texted me about seeing the fireworks in Rowlett and after I discussed with Ogre, we decided it could work.  I had a birthday party to take the kids to in the afternoon, but we decided we go after and meet my partner and her sweet baby girl for dinner after.  Turned [...]

The experience Mina started hula lessons today, so it was just me and her.  We ended up having to stop off at the hospital for an admission after her dance lesson, so I decided we’d eat in Rowlett so it wouldn’t be too late when we were eating dinner.  Just a few weeks ago, I [...]

About Child's Plate chronicles our journey to find the perfect family restaurant. We are looking for restaurants with excellent food and a great attitude towards kids, even the whiny, cranky ones! We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
