Top Ten Tuesday - 10 Fun Things to do with Jackson this Summer in St. Louis


There are so many fun things I want to do with Jackson this summer. I thought I'd put together a list of my top 10 places I want to take him here in St. Louis. I thought this would be a good list for those of you who live here in St. Louis (or close by) or for those of you that may be visiting St. Louis in the near future.

These aren't in any kind of order.

Its been several years since I've been here and I can't wait to go back with Jackson. There are many animals to see and you ride a tram through the farm while looking at the animals.

I went here with my mom, sister and nephew Landon a couple years ago. Its one of my favorite places here in St.Louis. I can't wait to take Jackson. They have a fun Children's Garden that I know Jackson would love.

I've only been here once and its been a very long time ago. I really want to go back and take Jackson to see all the cute farm animals and dogs. 

There are tons of cool things for kids to do here. My sister just took her kids a couple of weeks ago and Mason, who is only 12 days older than Jackson, had a blast. There is even stuff for the babies to do. ☺
Though, we've already taken Jackson to the zoo earlier this year, I'd really like to go back and let him ride the train and go into the children's petting zoo. We didn't get to do those things before. I think he would get a kick out of petting some of the animals. Plus, when we were there earlier this year, they were still working on the new Sea Lion Exhibit and I believe its supposed to be done this month!

This is a little water park, right outside of St. Louis, in Collinsville, IL. They have parent/tot time on Friday mornings (a special time for kids under 7) that I'd like to take Jackson too.

7.) St. Louis City Garden
This is a beautiful new garden downtown that has a bunch of cool fountains for kids to play in.

8.) St. Louis Cardinals Game at Busch Stadium
We are actually going to a Cardinals/Royals game this Friday night. Jackson's first Pro Sports game! My husband is a Royals fan and I'm a Cardinals fan, so Jackson is wearing a Royals outfit and a Cardinals Hat! LOL.

9.) Butterfly House
I've never been to the Butterfly House, but have always wanted to go. I hope to make it there this summer sometime.

10.) St. Louis Carousel at Faust Park
I thought this would be a fun thing for Jackson. He's old enough now and sitting up on his own, so I think he would like this.

Now that's an ambitious but awesome list.

I love that Jackson will be rooting for both baseball teams. Ha!
