Grant's Farm

We went to visit Nana and Papa for a short vacation! We had two days to spend with them. some of the time we spent at the pool or watching movies. On Saturday we went to Grant's Farm. It is like a zoo that Anheiser Busch keeps open to the public. It is where the Grant family lived and later where the Busch family summered. It is such a neat place. We always try to go when we go visit. Nana and Kellen on the "train" that takes you through the nature preserve!
Ethan looking at the animals on the "train" He was worried that it would go too fast and he would fall off.
While on the train we got this close to an elk!
Once at the zoo part there are tons of things to do. One of them is to feed the goats baby bottles. Above is a picture of Ethan feeding the goats! They really get pushy when you go in.
See what I mean about pushy. Kellen does not even have a bottle for them and they are climbing him

Ethan feeding from the safety of the other side of the fence. He did not like feeding them inside
Kellen feeding them from outside

Since I went in with the kids Jared bought me a sweat shirt that says " I survived feeding the goats at Grant's Farm!" I love it and I wear it proudly!
Mike, this picture of the Cappybera is for you!
A parrot that we saw
There was a bridge that had a cooling mist for people to walk under. The boys loved playing in it!
The boys running through the mist
Here they are again! You would not think that a light mist would get them so wet!
Flamingos! I NEED a few dozen of these for my front lawn!
Eagles that we were so close to. They do not leave their open habitat because they were hurt at one time and now they can't fly!
