Fort Worth Stockyards

Last weekend after we picked up the little kids from my Dad’s, we stopped at the Fort Worth Stockyards to watch the cattle drive! Twice a day at 11:30 and 4pm they round up the cattle and walk them down the main road at the stockyards. A very Texas experience lol. While everyone always thinks all Texans are cowboys and farmers, I couldn’t even tell you the last time we saw a cow up and close. IMG_8693-Edit


I took the kids here years ago (back when there were only 3!) while we were in town visiting. Now that we only have about 10 months left before we PCS, I want to make sure we go and see all the places that we haven’t been yet. It’s a fun place to walk around, shop, eat and take in the local scene.

Off to one area you can check out the cows in their pin and get a closer look at them before the cattle drive.




About 10 minutes before the cattle drive, everyone starts lining the street.


The whole cattle drive part of our day took less than 5 minutes lol. But the kids had a great time and I definitely recommend it if you ever happen to visit Dallas/Fort Worth!
