Weekend Highlights

This past weekend, my parents came for a visit. It was nice to have them down, as they are always very helpful for all the work Randy and I put off.... like weeding and hanging up a new ceiling fan. But, we did have add some fun activities in the mix. We all headed down to the Anheuser Busch beer tour in St. Louis. And man, they keep that place beautiful. Don't think dingy, ugly, industrial buildings. It's beautiful red brick everywhere. Immaculate landscaping. Intricate detailings on walls. The tour ends at the Hospitality Room, where you can have two glasses of the beer selection on tap. And, despite my dislike for beer, I've found that Bud Lite Lime and the Golden Wheat beer is quite delicious on a hot day after you've hiked it on the tour for an hour and a half.

One of over 200+ Clydesdales Anheuser Busch owns.

The tack room. It takes five hours to put the whole regalia on a horse (hair braiding and all...).

A look inside the stables where some of the horses are kept. This wagon was one of the older models used to deliver beer.
