Riding Bikes

For Noah's Birthday yesterday we loaded up some bikes on the trailer and headed out to Grant's Trail to do some cycling with our Uncle Joshua and Aunt Rebbecca. We had a great time and we rode about 8 miles of the trail. The trail is absolutely flat, so it's pretty easy to go fast without even breaking a sweat.
After loading the bikes back up we went to Bob Evan's for dinner.

We also did some riding in our neighborhood today. Aaron is a neighbor who's been hanging out with us throughout the summer, but will be returning to school tomorrow.

Happy Birthday Noah!

We all can't believe that he's turning 12 today!

Grant's Farm

Yesterday we visited, "Grant's Farm" a great family attraction that offers close-up experiences with over 100 different species of animals here in the St. Louis area.
Grant's Farm is named after the General & President Ulysses S. Grant who founded and farmed a portion of the farm's 281 acres. Today it is owned by Anheuser-Busch and is the headquarters for Budweiser's Clydesdales.
We were hoping that the place would be empty, so we went near closing time, but we were almost the only visitors there. We were the last ones they let into the parking lot, the last ones on the tram, the last ones on the tram back and the last ones to leave the parking lot. I didn't really have time to film too many animals, but the ones I did see are in the video below. Most of the time we would've gone to a wildlife show, but we arrived after the last show.
Grant's Farm was rated the #7 greatest family attraction by Zagat and over 24 million people have visited the farm since it's founding.
Also, across the street is the Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site.

The Inyart Farm-March 6th

The Inyarts are good friends of ours from church and w drove down to their farm to celebrate David's birthday. My brothers and I had a great time as you'll see in the video below:

We got to drive some farm equipment for the first time and "helped" to make a dirt barrier to keep water from flooding the garden.

Highway Cleaning-Constitution Party of Jeff. Co

A couple of weeks ago Benjamin, Mom and I got up early Saturday morning to help the Jefferson County Constitution Party clean their Adopt-A-Highway project.
Mr. Blowers organized us into two teams, gaves us our bags and vests and dropped us off on both sides of the highway.
The stretch we were to cover was just under a mile and there wasn't nearly as much trash as I would've expected. Most of the stuff we picked was rubber from tires.
The temperature wasn't too hot for the first part of the road and we stayed pretty cool because of a light breeze that blew over the hill. However, it gradually got hotter as the day continued, so that by the time we reached the end we were pretty hot despite a couple of water breaks.
We had a good time and are looking forward to the cool weather of this late Fall when we'll need to pick up the highway again.
