The Minnesota Project: November

So November pretty much flew by.  It’s just that month sandwiched between Finn’s two favorite holidays- Halloween and Christmas.  But we managed to get a few places- mostly inside, because, well, we live in MN, and it’s cold here.  But only in MN would you be able to go from wearing flips flops at the beginning of the month to wearing snow pants at the end of the month.  But nobody here is complaining (much)… Check out our November and then follow the blog circle around to see everyone else’s November MN adventures! Next up is the extremely sweet and talented Jo Davis!

We started swimming lessons back up this month- so we spend every Saturday am at the Ridgedale YMCA… and Max leaves ready for a LONG nap- win!


We’ve also spend several Saturdays evenings at the Minnesota Children’s Museum.  They are closing for the winter to finish renovations, so we needed to get our fix before they did.  Not surprisingly, the boys favorite part was the air tubes in the new Forces at Play exhibit.


We made a few trips to Breadsmith- it’s our go-to spot for treats when Finn has a day off school.  And see- flip flops mid November!


And then two days later this happened…


Max got to try ice skating for the first time at Braemar Ice Arena.  He was pretty excited.  Actual time on the ice lasted less than a minute…


And we spent a non-traditional Thanksgiving at the Water Park of America. Our first time there and the boys LOVED it.


Hope everyone is staying warm!!! And happy holidays!
