Field Trip to Dallas Heritage Village

In March, the kids had a field trip to Dallas Heritage Village. We had never been before and didn't quite know what to expect, so we were very pleasantly surprised by how cool it was. 

The 20-acre park is home to the largest collection of 19th century pioneer and Victorian homes and commercial buildings in Texas, and they were all moved here from various locations around the state. If you are even slightly a history nerd, I highly recommend a visit.

The weather was perfect on the day of the field trip, and we all had so much fun exploring the grounds.

{Pro tip: they sell ice-cold root beer in the general store.}

We clearly had to stop by the Thompson & Knight office. The Firm is celebrating its 130th anniversary this year, and I couldn't be more proud of our long history of client service and community involvement in Dallas (not just marketing speak).

And while the historical buildings were super cool, our favorite spot was the farm/blacksmith area. 

Ava even learned how to saw logs.

{Shout out to the man in this picture whose name escapes me. He was absolutely wonderful, knowledgable, and just the sweetest.}

We will definitely be back!

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. I think that about sums it up.
