After our dinosaur hunt, we went into Granbury for lunch and to see the downtown. After that, we decided to see what Cleburne had going. We learned, not much. We headed back to our hotel after that and took a nap. For dinner, we found a great BBQ place.
On Sunday, we headed to Stephenville on our way home (it's the opposite direction from home). We drove around Tarleton State University and a flea market. For lunch, we decided to have a picnic. We bought some sandwich fixings and search for a picnic table. The girls loved it!

On Monday, we continued our vacation with horseback riding. Wes had been waiting to take the girls on a ride for a long time. He found a place outside of town and we headed that way. The girls had a blast. They rode with us. Gracie said it was her favorite part of the vacation.

The girls were excited to get their faces painted like a woodpecker. The woodpecker is important to the Chickasaw because the story goes, when he Creator flooded the earth, the woodpecker flew above the water and was brave. The Creator was so impressed that He made the woodpecker the guardian of the Chickasaw people.
After the face painting, the girls made a clay pot and got a corn husk doll. They loved the doll. Then, we toured the village, ate lunch and toured the museum. It was really fun and interesting.
