2. Canterbury Park
When E's brother came to visit with his kids on Labor Day we met up for a day at the races. I shared Canterbury Park as one of my favorite Twin Cities places to go with kids, and Labor Day was an especially good day to visit. There were activities for the kids (pony rides, petting zoo, etc) and wiener dog races between the horse races. Miss A thought those were SO funny. Little J was in heaven when she got to ride a pony. She really is an animal lover.

4. Minnesota Children's Museum
I've expressed my love for the children's museum several times, and this is no different. Both Creativity Jam and Thomas the Train are leaving soon, so the girls and I headed over last week to check both out one more time. It was a fairly quiet morning, so the girls could really explore everything in Creativity Jam. Miss A found the paper airplane launcher which was so cool! It was great to see her figure out how to make the airplanes go higher and further with each attempt. Little J really enjoyed putting paper scraps in the wind tunnel and watching them wiggle around. Both girls enjoyed having a space to create some projects too. When we got home from the museum, I got an email from MCM about a special giveaway just for friends of Smart Play Ambassadors. MCM is giving away a Deluxe Museum Membership and 4 Choo Choo Bob DVDs to one luck person. This giveaway is for friends of Smart Play Ambassadors, so go here to enter! The giveaway closes September 20, and the winner will be notified on September 22. Good luck!
