Fun at Fossil Rim

I had heard that Fossil Rim was a fun family destination (about an hour and a half south of Flower Mound), but I didn’t really know what it was about until this past weekend.  Looking at our family calendar, I realized I was staring at a unicorn – that mythical moment in time when all the stars align and there was NOTHING scheduled for us to do AND the weather was going to be in the 70’s. Jackpot, baby.  I wasted no time in finding something for us to do – and it seemed it was finally time to check out Fossil Rim.

We scheduled a personal tour, which I HIGHLY recommend.  You can also choose to just drive around in your car, but having a tour guide to give you all of the background information on the park and animals, interesting animal facts, plus the giant bucket of food for hand feeding was invaluable.  Plus after a long-ish drive it was nice to be out of our own car and into the open “truck.”

Needless to say Fossil Rim was a total hit.  We all loved it and truly had the best time.  My favorite was feeding the giraffes, our son loved getting so close to the cheetahs (they are behind a fence), and my husband really liked the red deer.  And the three year old? She was pretty dang excited that she found a pet ladybug.  hahaha!
