A day at the Fort Worth Wildlife Refuge and Nature Center

Posted in family trip, Kids' photography, my family

A week or so ago, our family ventured out to the Fort Worth Wildlife Refuge and Nature Center.  This little gem has lots to offer!  There are some great hiking trails if you are up to that.  With little kids, we didn’t do too much of it, though, I think we could have done more.  Wildlife, including buffalo and prairie dogs are “roaming” the park.  Meaning, they are fenced in and you can see them if you are lucky.  The prairie dog has long been a family favorite since our visit to South Dakota a couple years ago, so it was fun seeing the little critters again.  I let me daughter borrow my other camera to take pictures at her whim.  She had lots of fun and took some decent pictures too!  We saw a lot of deer while driving through the park, and we each got a decent picture of one.  It was a beautiful day, and I am so glad I got to spend it with my family enjoying the great out doors!

 And here are a few of my daughter’s pictures she took.  I think she did a great job!  And she had so much fun using mommy’s camera.

I love this image I captured of my children in the fall colors.  Fall is my favorite time of year, and it is very fleeting down here in Texas, so I make a big deal about getting portraits every year.  I love the quiet feeling of this image.  I hope my children will look back at these images and be reminded of the joy they had growing up together.  I am sure they will have stories of “crazy” mom who had to have so many images.  I hope they will be glad they have them to pass down and share with their children one day.
