Monday we headed out for a day of Fun in Ft.Worth. The weather was beautiful and we had a great time at the Ft.Worth Zoo, watching the cattle drive at the stockyards, visiting TCU (Mason's FAVORITE!) and finishing off with dinner at Joe T. Garcia's.
Their favorite part of the day was feeding the birds. You purchase the seed sticks for $1 and then get to go into the enclosure to feed them. We were there early in the morning and had a BLAST and all the birds were hungry and eager to snack, but when we went back to feed them again later in the day we couldn't get any to come eat the seed. The woman was selling the sticks told us that they made 1000 for the day and they were almost sold out... so insider tip.... if you're going to feed the birds go early in the day when they're hungry :)
My favorite part of trips to the Ft.Worth zoo is the stop for ice cream :)
This is how we were all feeling by the end of our 5-hour stay at the zoo...
After the zoo we headed to the Ft.Worth stockyards to watch the cattle drive. This happens twice a day and even though I've lived in Texas for 20 years I had never seen it!
We explored downtown a bit...
... checked out the herd...
... and then decided to check out TCU. Mason's best friends are BIIIIG TCU fans and they have totally converted/indoctrinated him :)
The field was open for people to go look around so we had to go check it out!
We finished the night off with dinner at Joe T. Garcia's... the most GORGEOUS patio and amazing Mexican food.
I'm bound and determined to make more videos (we all love looking back and watching them) and I have fun putting them together. (sidenote - you can subscribe to my YouTube channel HERE!)
We had so much fun and Dave and I were talking about how we feel like we're officially out of the "baby/toddler" phase. All we brought with us was a backpack with everybody's lunches. No diapers, no wipes, no stroller, no wagon.... just us. As sad as we are that we don't have babies at home anymore it also kind of feels like the beginning of a new chapter of being able to get out and about and experience new things with a whole new level of easy.
Happy Thursday, Friends!!!
