Today we met up with Erica and the kids for a visit to Faust Park. All of the buildings were closed, but we were able to walk around and up on the porches, through the gardens, etc.

Faust is one of the St. Louis parks the kids need to visit in order to earn their STL parks Jr. Ranger badge.

Next, we visited the home of Missouri's second Governor.

It's really old. It was really too babyish for the boys, but they can at least say they've seen it, now!

It was pricey so I don't know that we'll return any time soon, but it was really pretty! The butterflies were everywhere! So amazing.
