A Big Texas Hello from "COW TOWN"!

Well, no sketch to share today, but I can say that we are having a wonderful time on our family vacation in Texas. We just got in from the Fort Worth Rodeo and what fun it was! We've had some very fun filled days here in Texas. The first day we were here the kids hadn't gotten to bed until around midnight, so needless to say, they were extremely tired the next day. We ventured out to the Main Street in Grapevine to see what they had to offer and we found some options where we could possibly go horse back riding. The kids needed a nap so bad, so we spent the afternnon napping and Dave and I got to take walks around the camp yards as it was over 70 out. Then we went in the evening to the playground and the kids loved that. We headed for supper at a local BBQ place and I can't say enough about it.....oh my were we full!

Yesterday we went horse back riding in the morning and then to a drive through safari in the afternoon/early evening. It was really fun, especially the ostriches that reached their head compeletly into our vehicle and grabbed the bag of food. It scared us! We got to see so many animals and we even got to feed the giraffes from our car. Today we saw a cattle drive and made it to the rodeo this evening. During the afternoon we took a train ride too. The kids don't know how lucky they have it to go on a trip like this and be doing so much.

Tomorrow we plan to do more of the same, cattle drives, rodeo and more eating! We have stuffed our faces down here.....I hate to jump on the scale when we get home!

Now aren't these pictures priceless! Have a great weekend!
