I considered going to the Ft. Worth Stockyardds for the twice daily cattle drives down the middle of the street. But my aunt was more partial to the aquarium option.
So we headed to Dallas World Aquarium which had fish, birds, reptiles, spiders and penguins! It was like air conditioned animal kingdom and Ava loved it. My favorite? The walk-through shark tank tunnel. Wish I'd had a Jaws theme ringtone to enhance the mood.
