Easter Bunny Village


Nicholas and Nicole at Purina Farms in Gray Summit, MO, just down the road from Six Flags. There is so much to see and do there. Especially at this time of year. They have Easter Bunny Village, with all sorts of baby barnyard animals, a hayloft where children can swing on ropes, climb through tunnels and play with toy tractors in big tables filled with corn. They have a Coy fish pond, large barnyard animals, a movie to view and all sorts of interactive displays. Weather-permitting, they have wagon rides (pulled by a tractor) around the premises. All of this is free; you just have to call for reservations. We had the best day ever!

Please scroll down for two more cute photos. You'll love the dog.

Your grandkids are adorable (does anyone else think Nicole resembles Grandma?). What a cool place. And free! Can't beat that. Free. Wow. What a fun way to spend the day...it looks very clean and well-kept, too. Cool place.

Oh Linda, those grandchildren are more adorable than any bunnies I've seen! And that dog is a doll! Thanks for sharing. Sincerely, Susan

Lisa, almost all of our tourist attractions are free in St. Louis: The Science Center, Zoo, Art Museum, Grant's Farm (a tram ride to see free roaming buffalo and deer and many other wild animals on the grounds of the brewery baron August Busch, along with zoo animals in compounds, animal shows, baby goats to feed baby bottles filled with milk). Then we have Powder Valley Nature Center, an interactive interpretive center with trails to hike and a bird viewing window where visitors can see everything from native birds at feeders, to wild turkeys and deer scampering about. We have Suson Farm a large park with barnyard animals. Friends came from Boston and couldn't believe that our attractions are free. The Arch is not. I am ashamed to admit, but I watched it being built from mys tudy hall window in high school.

Becky, it was up; did you get a chance to see it? I don't usually post my students' photos on my website. That's a no-no, but you all asked. I can send you an email.

Tammy, your comments are even poetic. Why don't you have a best seller yet? Thanks for your comments.
