Strolling Thru The Fort Worth Stockyards

Real Estate Agent with Citiwide Alliance Realty

Strolling thru the Fort Worth Stockyards is one of my favorite weekend activities.  Have you ever visited the Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas?  Since we live near this attraction enjoy dining, shopping and the rodeo we visit often. 

As a Fort Worth Realtor I'm on my computer for many hours, every day.  Besides writing contracts, receiving offers, searching for properties and viewing homes I'm an active member of Active Rain. I challenged myself to spend more time writing blogs, less time playing with social media. Each of my gadgets have a different photo. These pictures are changed often.  It so happens the contest for Active Rain this month is "Show us Your Wallpaper!"

I'm on my computer for many hours, every day.  I'm thinking, "YAY!!"  "A contest I'm participating in."

I'm delighted to explain the photo of this screenshot on my laptop.

This particular trip the weather was great.  It was a kids weekend with many tourist attractions such as pony and train rides, photo opportunities with horses, reptile and bird trainers as well as a few activities available for free.  

These two cuties are cousins. The blonde is my daughter's middle child and the beautiful young girl is my middle child's daughter. They are seven days apart and so cute. 

The Cattle Drive travels twice daily down this path.  It's a large attraction. Many people have never seen such a sight.

After the herd passed we were walking to watch a trainer in the arena preform tricks with a rope.  

Now you can't see their faces ...   but once they intertwined their little fingers.... Mimi knew she had to snap a picture of this image!  

Every time I open my laptop this photo brings a smile to my face.  


Are you looking for a home in Fort Worth or thinking about selling your property?  Don't hesitate to contact me.  If your in the Stockyard area or have questions about living in Fort Worth - give me a call. I would love to meet and discuss your real estate options.

Melissa, VERY cute picture!  I've not been to the stockyards, seems most of my trips to the area have been confined to DFW airport!

This is an adorable picture Melissa! I usually just have beach landscapes or forests. I work on the beach and love it, but I also like to go hunting with my brother in the woods.

That is an awesome picture to bring a smile to your face.  When they fuss and fight with each other, you can show them this photo.  Or better yet, take their picture like this every year from now on.
