Last week I took the kids to Shaw Nature Reserve, an extension of the Missouri Botanical Gardens. It was a pretty good drive to get there, and I was so glad that I decided to leave when we did since we barely made it home before all three kids came down with a stomach flu that kept them in the bathroom for several days.
But while we were there (happily ignorant of what the afternoon held :) we all had a great time. There was a lot to see, but the lovely lady who worked in the office suggested we start with the kids area. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed in that spot for our entire visit.
