We really liked the Travelers World Campgrounds. They offer Passport America discounts, are very clean and near bigger cities. We spent a week between Dallas and Fort Worth at Treetop Travelers World. Marcus had saved a coupon for a free child ticket for Legoland Discovery Center. It was from a cereal box his grandma gave him six months ago. So while we were close to one Marc took Marcus a Caroline on a fun adventure. Even better for me it was located at the Grapevine Mall so I was able to do some shopping.
We stopped in downtown Dallas for a quick picture on a cold afternoon.
We went to the Stockyards National Historic District to see the cattle drive and had an amazing lunch!
My favorite stop was a visit to the Kimbell Art Museum. This museum had such a great collection. They had presentations geared toward children for many of these pieces. We enjoyed hearing about and seeing works by Matisse, Raeburn, Chardin, Degas, Goya, Cezanne and Picasso. We have been studying several of these artists this year and wished Miss Lisa (who inspired us to love art) could have been with us.
This was Marcus’ favorite. It was the first known painting done by Michelangelo when he was 12 or 13. It is called the Torment of Saint Anthony. Even thought the demons are around him, his face remains calm. He must know God will take care of him.
This was Caroline’s favorite. It is called Weeping Willow and it is by Claude Monet. We heard a description of it and were asked to think about how it made us feel.
