Grant's Farm

As if going to the transportation museum hadn't filled our quota of STL tourist attractions we also spent a day at Grant's Farm with Maw Maw and Paw Paw.

Even though it is pretty close to home this was Madeline's first trip to Grant's Farm. I hadn't been there in at least 3 years and Kevin hadn't been in he thinks is at least 10. When you don't have kids to take there isn't really any reason to go. (Well there is the free samples of Anheuser-Busch products, but that isn't really our thing, you know?)

We saw a TON of animals in the deer park including European Red Deer with huge (three foot) antlers and American Bison. They were all pretty close to the road too, so Madeline got a huge kick out of that.

Then we fed the goats. We stayed on the outside of their pen because those suckers are aggressive! Although her face is a little mis-leading in this photo Madeline thought feeding goats a baby bottle was one of the coolest things ever!

Those goats slurped that milk down in no time flat!

Then it was off to the carousel, which is new to the Farm. Madeline has been on the one at the Zoo but never tires of riding around in circles.

Just look at that happy face!

Thank you Maw Maw and Paw Paw for a wonderful day out!

So she likes feeding goats a bottle...hmmmmm. Maybe Madeline is hoping for a goat instead of a baby brother or sister...just a thought!
