As many of you know, I went to St. Louis for the week to visit Patrick . It was a ton of fun even through the crazy heat (over 100 degrees every day!) Here are a few pictures to recap the week I was there and some of the fun things we did.
One of my favorite things we did when I was visiting was go to Grants Farm. When you arrive you are whisked away on a long cart and taken around the entire farm to see all of the exotic animals they have on the farm. After this you are dropped off to explore more animals, interact with them etc. We decided to feed the little goats.
They nearly attack you when they see the bottle in your hand but are completely harmless. Although one of them tried to nibble on my skirt!
Patrick handled the attacking goats with ease…
The parrots colors were too beautiful not to snap a picture
They had two gorgeous bald eagles that had sustained injuries and made them no longer able to fly and survive in the wild.
Of course we had to visit the…
They are such loving and beautiful animals. I could have stayed there for hours!
This one was a youngster and not yet full-size (although still pretty big)
Jake was the most social and a big fan of having is nose scratched. Such a good boy!
So when I wasn’t drooling over the clydesdales we also visited the arch of course. We took a few pictures in front but the lighting was off. Here is one shot I did like:
On a previous trip to St. Louis, Patrick and I went up in it. It is certainly nerve-racking looking down and seeing nothing under you- Eek!
The trip was filled with other fun adventures and trips, including a trip to crown candy where we had some of the best milkshakes and malts on this planet!
