Travels: 11 miles driving around (7284 total miles)
Accommodations: Continued at Micah’s house

We woke up after not nearly enough sleep – two late nights in a row did not help! We cleaned up from last night, and I made a yummy late breakfast (english muffin toasted with cheddar cheese, topped with sauteed greens (from my dad’s garden), tomato slices (from CA), bacon, and a fried egg (from our chickens). Yum!

After we got ready, we headed off to the Fort Worth Stockyards, a touristy area now but cute AND we got to see them drive a small herd of Texas Longhorns down the old, brick road (they do this two times a day).  Then, we walked around a bit, the kids went to a petting zoo, and it rained on us a bit.

After the Stockyards, and a quick Starbucks fix to satisfy my husband’s coffee addiction, we headed to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, a newer museum to the area that is super cool! If I lived here I would get a membership and visit weekly. It was a blast for the kids and us (Dave in particular). Very, very  impressive!

After our enjoyable stint at the museum, we headed to Railhead for some Texas BBQ. It was yummy – chopped beef sandwiches, beans, coleslaw, and a frosty beer.

Back at Micah’s the kids took baths, got in PJs, watched a little movie, and hit the sack. While the men folk hit the ceiling – literally, I ran out to a cute grocery store called Central Market and got some fun stuff (Texas Peaches for .88/lb, Bison sausage for breakfast burritos in the morning, All Terrain Bite & Sting Soother Spray for Kenz’s enormous mosquito bites, a couple melons, and grapes for the car ride tomorrow). Dave and Micah went to work installing can lights in Micah’s kitchen. And at midnight – ice cream and peaches and off to bed! Another late night… tomorrow a “quick” drive to Bartlesville, Oklahoma.

Micah: Our good friend from the high school years. We have kept in touch and enjoyed each other’s company consistently over the years. A true friend. He is a professor in Arlington and resides in the lovely Fort Worth area in a 3 +1 house he recently purchased.
