On the drive into Rough Creek.

So, we got there Thursday night and had dinner reservations. Dinner was over one and a half hours long and was three courses that were to die for. The girls did great sitting there for that long. Here they are before dinner.
On Friday, we did Rough Creek things. Kirk golfed and rock wall climbed. We took the girls to dig for fossils, to the petting zoo, jumped on the trampolines, and swimming.
After cleaning up from swimming, we went into Glen Rose for ice cream and to find my great-great-grandfathers home. A local lawyer has purchased the home and has restored it. It was amazing to find the home and see how cool it was back in 1881.
Saturday morning we checked out of Rough Creek and headed to Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. You drive through the 30 mile wildlife center and get to feed the animals. Half way through the drive you get to the top of one hill and there is a restaurant, petting zoo, and souvenir shop. Holland loved the animals but Britton didn't like riding in the truck the whole time. Apparently a fly landed on her leg and freaked her out so she would panic anytime she saw a bug. She is my daughter, for sure.
After Fossil Rim, we headed over to Dinosaur World. Holland has been wanting to see the dinosaurs forever. She watches Dino Dan all the time and has a dinosaur book she refers back to. Her favorite is the T-Rex. She was like a kid in the candy store at Dinosaur World. While you're there you walk through the Dinosaur displays, feed the fish, and then go for a fossil dig.
Next on our list of things to do is go to the Dinosaur Valley State Park. There you can see real dinosaur tracks and play in the water where the tracks are. Holland loved getting in the water because the little fish nibbled on her toes. I kept Britton up in the shade with me.
Overall, it was a great trip and we all had a wonderful time. :)
