Grant's Farm

 I love STL because they have cool places to visit for FREE!  So nice.  Grant's Farm has been one of my favs since I was a child!  You can see the animals up close and even feed some of them! Grant's Farm is the ancestral home of the Busch Family (yes, the beer folks).  Here's some more history, our 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant, founded and farmed part of the 281 acres (in the 1850's).  Thanks to the Busch Family, you can visit the farm for free!!!  It all begins with a tram ride that takes you along the outskirts of the farm.  When you exit the tram, one of the first things the kids can do is feed the goats!  You can buy milk bottles for a dollar and then let the kids feed the goats.  We went inside the pin, but the goats started jumping all over us.  We quickly exited and fed them from the outside!  We even got to feed camels!  But the cutest feeding of the day is when Alex and Anna sat right next to each other while eating their snack!  This was so cute.  We were trying to get them to kiss, but they were too shy!
