A few weeks ago we spent a weekend in Fort Worth. We left early on a Saturday morning and were in FW in time to eat lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, the Reata. With full bellies, we headed over to the Museum of Science and History. The Stock Show was going on, and since the museum is inside the stock show grounds, we were able to just buy admission to the grounds and visit another museum too.
We all enjoyed checking out the dinosaur exhibit. There is a dinosaur skeleton that is more than 12 feet high and 60 feet long - we were all impressed. When we walked in, Will's eyes got big, and he said "It's HUGE!" in an awestruck voice. The boy loves dinosaurs!
Next door is the National Cowgirl Museum. Our favorite part was the bucking bronco - the kids each took their turn.
After the ride you get a 20 second "movie" of yourself looking like a real rodeo champion that you can later download.We loved the resulting videos - Will's little wave was so funny.
A short nap in the car and dinner at Blue Mesa finished out day 1.
On Sunday we drove to Dallas with Bob and Ma for a final Honor Flight reception at the Frontiers of Flight museum.
