Zeke visits Southfork Ranch

Have you heard the buzz about the remake of the tv series Dallas?  Those of us who live in the Dallas area often here about their affection for our town because of the original show. In fact, one of the reasons my husband’s family moved here in the 80’s was because of the television series. With the rebirth of Dallas, our beloved city and it’s infamous Southfork Ranch (which is actually located about 20 miles in Parker, TX) is back in the spotlight.

Being the über dorks that my husband and I are, we felt the need to head over to Southfork Ranch with our baby Zeke and introduce him to this Dallas landmark.

    Zeke could careless that we're pulled over on the side of the road taking random pictures. He just wants his dad. I would like to say, we aren't the only nerds taking photos on the side of the road.

    No cattle out today. While we hung outside of the ranch - you can tour the grounds and house. With all the buzz of the new Dallas series, attendance has tripled to tour the grounds.

    Zeke plopped right in front of the Southfork conference center.

I’m happy to report that my husband and I aren’t the only dorks who were there taking random photos in front of the ranch.
