We traveled up on Saturday morning and met up with our college friends Mike & Andrea who were kind enough to let us crash at their new house (even with a baby!), thanks guys!
If you have never been to Grant's Farm, I highly recommend going. There are animals, a train, a petting zoo, the Clydesdale's and the best part...free beer at the beer Garden.
Here is a little history on the Farm, for more info visit their site here: http://www.grantsfarm.com/281-acre ancestral home of the Busch family, located just south of the city of St. Louis. The Farm is home to more than 900 animals representing more than 100 different species. Grant's Farm, operated by Anheuser-Busch, Inc., has been a St. Louis tradition for over five decades. The Farm takes its name from our 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant. In the 1850s, Grant founded and farmed a portion of the 281 acres. Today, this land is home to Grant's Farm and is preserved as a living symbol of the Busch family's love for animals and Anheuser-Busch's commitment to wildlife conservation and preservation. Admission to Grant's Farm is free to all ages. Reservations are not required.
