FFF - On the Farm

Last weekend I decided it was time for a little FFF. Forced Family Fun!! I gave Paul the option of picking the activity and handed him a list of "50 fun things to do in Saint Louis with your kids!" He was hoping to score tickets to the Cardinals game but there were no good deals to be had so he opted for a trip to Purina Farms instead. Dogs & cats instead of hot dogs & beers.

As far as family activities go, this one was much more exciting for the kids than it was for us. Small place, lots of farm animals, dogs & cats, a dog show. We managed to pick a stormy afternoon to go so the place was pretty empty which was nice. Gave us lots of quality time to feed the pigs & chickens while trapped in the barn as the thunderstorm passed over. The highlight of the day for Leah was watching the cows get milked. I didn't really appreciate the obvious comparison between the milking machine and my breast pump however.

All in all a good day and we came home with two sleeping kids!

This chicken had a crush on Paul!
