Where: Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska, Minnesota
Age of Bap Boy: 2.75
Review: Now that our child has mostly emerged out of infancy and young toddler-like behavior, we are finding that going out and about and exploring together with him (not just strapping him in a stroller) is a lot more fun. He is still that impulsive little toddler who needs to be told and re-told what certain rules are (like don't touch or pick the flowers!) but overall he's that much closer to three and starting to be easier to go to places with that aren't just designed with kids under 2 in mind.
The arboretum is phenomenal to go to year round, but particularly impressive during the warm months because of all the amazing plants and flowers everywhere, which are clearly labeled. Right now, they've got a cool outdoor exhibit featuring Legos! The neat lego structures and the serene fountains and pathways leading every which direction made for a fabulous morning.
