We found this really beautiful park recently that has a natural spring. It is also a rainbow trout hatchery, so you can feed the fish. Which the littles adore. These fish are voracious eaters, and do amazing leaps and wriggles just to get to the food that gets thrown in. So that's fun to watch. The scenery is gorgeous, and there are a couple of waterfalls to top it all off. Not to mention the incredible turquoise waters of the spring, where it is so clear you can see straight to the bottom. It's a treasure! If you're ever in the middle of nowhere Missouri, check out Maramec Spring Park. There's even a pretty interesting museum, too.
But the littles mostly wanted to just feed the fish.
