We had our first family trip on an airplane and spent a week in Texas. The first three days we were in Dallas for Alan’s educators conference and the last three days we stayed in Fort Worth.
The highlight of our trip was a visit to the Forth Worth Stockyards. The Stockyards is a historic part of town with cobblestone streets, horses, daily cattle drives, and more steakhouses, cowboy boots, and saloons than you’ve ever seen in a two-block radius.
Our favorite part of the day was watching the cattle drive. Texas longhorns are an amazing sight! We thought they were so sweet and cute, with their big brown eyes and their super long horns. Each animal has horns that are a different shape and length. Some of the horns are so big that it’s hard to believe the animal can hold up its head! Sometimes the horns are asymmetrical, which was especially cute. They are gentle giants that move slowly and have a peacefulness about them.
We had rain the last two days of our trip, including our day at the Stockyards. Luckily there was plenty of opportunity for shelter and we still managed to have a great time.
