Travel Tuesday-Fort Worth Stock Yards

One thing I want to do more of this year is TRAVEL.  Travel as a family.  Growing up our parents were always working and could not afford for us to travel.  But it is one thing that my husband and I enjoy.  We were taking a short trip to Fort Worth for a Quinceanera and while there decided to visit the Stockyards.  This place is so much fun.  It is like from an old western.  The kids really enjoyed themselves.  There is so much to do here, like:

-Petting Zoo
We quickly found out we were not dressed to be in this old western.  My daughter wanted a hat so we did some shopping.

Next, we headed to check out more of the animals.  We visited the Longhorns.  There is always educational opportunities wherever you go and this was one of them for both the teen and toddler.


The kids had a lot of fun trying to identify and match each one.  We then ventured around.  Check out this trail.  We did not have time to go take a hike, walk, or jog it but it is on my list when we come back next time.
All the sightseeing, having fun, and shopping made us all a bit hungry.  My husband and I like to find places the the triple D has visited.  No need here because all of this food was smelling so awesome, we made a fast decision and decided hamburgers was the winner.
We even had time to watch the cattle drive.  It only happens twice a day so make sure you add this to your schedule.  The kiddos love it!
We will be back to the stockyards.  This weekend happened to be super cold.  So we will come back when the weather is much warmer, and this time I will bring my hat and boots.  Yee Haw!
