We've taken the opportunity to do some of the fun activities we hadn't tried yet here in the Twin Cities, mostly successfully. The only challenging part of the visit so far (well, apart from three kids under the age of 5) was the several days of extreme heat when K and C first arrived. The heat index was listed at 122 at the worst and it was pretty uncomfortable. It's cooled off since then and we've had absolutely gorgeous days and lots of fun outdoors. Here's some pictures of our adventures thus far...
|We lasted 25 minutes at the park at 9 am. SO HOT. It was|
a good excuse to eat ice cream at 9:30 am though.
|On a trolley ride|
|I think Brighton sees an iceberg ahead|
|Taking the trolley home (this was such a fun - and free - activity)|
|At a Saint Paul Saints baseball game. Pacey takes his baseball|
|Classic ballpark food - french fries, pretzel and Hawaiian Punch|
(it contains a whole 5% fruit juice you know)
|Caitlin wasn't too sure about the food...|
|The girls trying out Pacey's bed|
|Playing dress-up...this girl is way too comfortable|
in a tiara
|Pace got in on the action|
|Ready for an adventure|
|Someone who shall remain nameless|
celebrated a milestone birthday the other
day. Again, B went right for the tiara.
