On this day we did Grant's Farm in the morning and City museum in the evening. I didn't know what to expect at Grant's Farm because I had never been there, but it was very cool! You immediately get on a tram type ride and it takes you through the deer park, etc. The buffalo were crazy and running right along our tram, I thought they were going to run into us!!! After the drive through park they drop you off and a section you can walk around in. Lee's favorite part were all the free Budweiser drinks they give you there, ha! The girls loved feeding the goats. After that section the tram takes you back to the entrance, were all the famous Budweiser Clydesdales are. Fun place, and it's free!
|Getting read to leave the hotel for the day...horrible pic, but figured I'd share anyways lol|
|Raya was "reading" the map and found the picture of the flamingos...she kept telling us we HAD to go there first! lol|
|View from the tram ride|
|This is how close the buffalo got when the were RUNNING along side the tram!!! Here the herd cut off the tram as we were going through a gate entrance...the tram had to stop so they didn't plow us over lol|
|Once inside the walking part we were able to feed the goats bottles!|
|Washing off the goat germs ;-)|
|We ended up getting a stroller to rent there because Brielle was being a little whiny after two busy vacation days in a row|
|They had some fun animal shows to watch|
Dippin' Dots! ....while Daddy drank his free beer lol
Then we headed to the area with the Clydesdales.....
|A Clydesdale named Lee!|
Later that night we went to the City Museum! If you have never been there it's hard to explain. It's not really a "museum" like with paintings, etc....it's like this giant pile of steel and junk outside that is like a big modern sculpture....that you climb through! It's like 4 stories high and everywhere you look people are crawling all over, going down 3 story (and higher!) slides, etc. The girls were probably too little really....I'd say it's perfect for elementary, middle, and even high school students! They stay open until midnight or something on weekends and I actually saw tons of high school/college age groups coming in as we were leaving.
|This picture is not mine---I borrowed it from online to show the outside part. We went all the way up to that plane!|
|This isn't my pic either....this is one section inside---on the right (yellow) is an example of a slide....we went down that one. We didn't go through the wire tubes (in the center there) b/c the girls were too little.|
|Not my picture either....shows more inside stuff!|
|They had cool ball pits all over|
|They had a train ride inside that the girls loved. It was free too, which was nice.|
|Going down one of the tube slides!|
|Up in the airplane, like 4 stories high lol|
|Lee and the girls climbed through the tail of the plane, over the a castle!|
|My view from the plane|
|They made it to the castle!|
