Playing Hooky in Fort Worth

This past week has been really busy and tiring, so I was pleased when I got a text on Friday from DH that said, “Will you go on a date with me tomorrow?” I emphatically answered “Yes!”, and so yesterday we went to the Fort Worth Stockyards. Fort Worth’s nickname is “Cowtown”, because back in the day I think it was a major place to buy and sell stock. (It still is but I don’t think to the same degree.)  Anyway, the stockyards has become a fun little touristy area where there’s a cattle drive twice a day, cowboy (and cowgirl!) museums, and fun shopping and dining. Pictures speak louder than words, so here are some fun shots:

I tried this maze the last time we were here….I barely made it out of there alive! haha

These are the longhorns that are part of the cattle drive every day.

The petting zoo. Those goats wanted that food!

Alpaca

Two week old kids!

This is how we roll… haha

The building where they have rodeos

Every cowboy needs a hat…

White elephanat Saloon…I liked the windows.

Handmade boots…

And finally, no trip to the stockyards is complete without some Texas BBQ! We had brisket, sausage, and pork loin. Yummmmmm

Good food, good fun, and good company. Good Saturday. 🙂
