On one of our days in Dallas we went to the Dallas Heritage Village to look at historic buildings from around the area, which have all been moved to one location. I really loved it, but my boys had little patience for it, and Eric was only mildly interested. In many of the homes, you could go in the rooms, but there were barriers so that you couldn't actually get close enough to really examine things. Some of the buildings were more open, like the school house. We had a fun time there.
Of all the things, the boys liked the water fountain and the empty horse trough the best.
Later that day we went to the Trinity River Audubon Center, which did not exist when lived there. We picked up my nephew before heading over, and it was good to spend a little more time with him. We hiked around for a little bit, but it was really hot, and then the mosquitoes were incredibly bad, so we headed back to the indoor museum and exhibits for a little bit before heading out for the day.
