STL 250 Cake Quest - Purina Farms
I don't remember ever going to Purina Farms as a kid. Surprising because this was a very fun and FREE day!
We started out in the Pet Center checking out the cats and dogs. Ava and Sidney were a bit scared of the dogs, but not Clara. She was practically climbing in their cages.
They also had trainers demonstrating some of the dogs' tricks.
Next we went to the Barn and Play Area. Ava surprised me and asked if she could milk a cow!
The barn had all kinds of animals to look at/pet. There was also a play area in the barn's loft with tunnel mazes and corn/hay tables.
Lastly, we saw a dog show in the Dog Arena.
Like I said, everything was free except food and gift shop items. After the dog show we sat at the picnic tables and had lunch. Such a fun day!
Unfortunately, when we visited, their STL 250 Cake had been taken to Forest Park for the Fourth of July events so we missed seeing their cake. I'm still counting it though!
