Goats at Grants Farm

Grant’s Farm has all the stuff you need for an excellent Labor Day extravaganza! Brats! Beer! Pony & Camel rides! And plenty of cute fuzzy animals to pet and feed! If you haven’t been out lately, you may not have seen the return of the big goats. You can feed these guys from outside the fence, and they eat goat chow out of ice cream cones. It’s gotta be a huge money maker for Grant’s Farm because we wanted to feed ALL! THE! GOATS! Also, the big goats never get tired of visitors, unlike the baby goats who tend to get all milk happy and fall asleep by noon.

And of course, while you’re at Grant’s Farm you can pick up lunch…

Grant’s Farm is right next to the Grant’s Trail, one of the best trails in town! FYI: Grant’s Farm is always free, you just pay $12 per car for parking.

Don’t forget that Grant’s Farm will close for the season November 1st, 2015….but not before having a huge Halloween bash! They will deck out the Farm with kiddie safe ghosts and ghoulies in October and be open for special evening (6pm to 9pm) on the following nights: October 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24, 25, 29 & 30. We go every year and have a ton of fun! Here’s a recap from one of our visits. I’ll update you if I get more details from my pals at Grant’s Farm!halloween Grants Farm

What’s Going on Under the Gateway Arch?

What’s Going on Under the Gateway Arch?

You can’t miss the giant Gateway Arch construction project going on downtown–what a mess! The whole riverfront looks like a bulldozer convention is in town. Everywhere you look there’s blocked streets, hazard tape and giant piles of dirt. Don’t worry, the Arch is still open to visitors! And when the construction crews are done, we’re…Continue Reading

St. Louis Zoo: Is a Membership Worth the Price?

Each year I get a renewal notice from the St. Louis Zoo for my family’s membership, and every year I open my wallet without hesitation. Why, it’s the most awesome zoo ever! Of course I want to be a member! Whoo-hoo! But this year…I paused. We’ve been members almost as long as I’ve been a mom–16…Continue Reading
