If we love something, we try to go back every year.
We love the Indian Pow Wow at Traders Village in Grand Prairie.
And we go back every year.
We have been going since my kids were 1, 3 and not even thought of yet!
I first heard of it when I was at Traders Village looking for a giant pinata for my daughter's upcoming 2nd birthday.
The Pow Wow was interesting. We walked around, and watched the dancers. Then I tried the Indian Taco. Right then I knew my life would be changed forever.
They take their amazing Indian Fry Bread, which is, by the way, bread that has been fried. My daughter just eats it covered in honey, and that's okay.
But.... then they take ground meat, beans and Indian spices and put on top of the bread, then layered with lettuce and tomatoes.... oh...oh...oh.... it's wonderful!
So, we went back the next year, and the next.
But last October Lori passed away in her sleep, and Sara moved away to live with her dad. The Pow Wow had been the last thing we had done together. We were still eager to go this year, but things had changed. My kids, now 11, 9 and 3, still had a great time! My 3 year old watched one of the ceremonial dancers, authentically dressed in leather and feathers, and he then asked me if he was a bird.
I told him yes.
