Playing Tourist!

One of our favorite things to do is get out and explore our duty stations! I absolutely love to visit new places and find local things to do wherever we get stationed. This duty station was a bit different for us because we got lucky and Brian got orders to where we both grew up. We both are from north Texas, Carrollton to be exact, so when we got orders to Plano 2 year ago we were very excited to move back “home” for a bit! The majority of our family still lives nearby which has been awesome for our kids. This weekend 3 outta 4 kids went to visit my Dad (Quinn was sick) which they love doing! Today Quinn was feeling better so we decided to head to Ft. Worth and mess around a bit. First we headed to Clearfork Food Park for lunch, which is filled with awesome food trucks! And then we headed over to the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens. There’s no admission cost to visit which is awesome! Definitely visit if you’re ever in the area!!

It was so fun to get to hang out with Quinn for a bit all on his own! We normally of course have all the kids and let me just tell you, going somewhere with one kid verses FOUR?! It was a breeze lol.

But an out of focus photo is what happens 99% of the time when I hand off my camera lol. IMG_8612-Edit

Then we headed into the Japanese Gardens which was beautiful! This part of the gardens does have an admission price. But Brian got in free for being military, which is always appreciated!

Bring quarters along with you and you can get food to feed the koi fish. These things will swarm to you when someone starts to feed them, pretty crazy!IMG_8655-EditIMG_8659-EditIMG_8663-EditIMG_8668-EditIMG_8669-EditIMG_8675-EditIMG_8678-EditIMG_8683-Edit

So glad we decided to check this place out today! The weather was perfect and it’s a very pretty park (especially since it’s FREE lol.)
