Minnesota Children's Museum

Last week the hubby and I took Little L to the Minnesota Children's Museum.  Little L's aunt (the hubby's sister) had given her tickets to the museum for her first birthday.  It was such a great gift and we ended up waiting so long to use it because we really wanted to find the right day.  I must say we found it!  Going on Tuesday morning was probably the best decision we made.  They don't allow school groups on Tuesdays so that meant that the atmosphere was way more chill and there was a higher parent to child ratio.  It definitely helped make our day more fun and go more smoothly!


If you have never been to the MN Children's Museum than I highly recommend you get there when you can!  There is a reason it has been voted as one of the best indoor places to take your children in the Twin Cities.  (And with all the winter we have it is VITAL to have a fun indoor place to go!)  There is something for every age group and Little L even had a blast the last time we went when she was only 10 months old but I must say she had even more fun this time around!


Here are some pictures from our adventure!  (WARNING: LOTS of cute pictures to follow!)

Cute, cute, cute! : ) I'm glad there was a pic of L and Mommy too! I always end up taking all the pics and so there are tons of cute M and Daddy pics... : ) (which is OK, too!!) I think we'll have to hit that Museum up some time!
