We drove to Minneapolis the week before Christmas and spent a few days there. The boys are fantastic travelers, thankfully. They keep themselves busy with coloring, looking at books, and listening to audiobooks. And, of course, having tic tacs or gum all day long. =)
Mike worked while we were there, of course, so the boys and I kept ourselves occupied throughout the day. One day we spent exploring the “tubes”. We made it all the way to Mike’s office and had some kombucha on tap there and also grabbed some lunch with our guy.
Most of the rest of the time we hung around the hotel and played a lot of billiards. =) We also got in some “work outs”, drank hot chocolate, did some school and played some games. In retrospect, I would have scheduled another outing (like a children’s museum or something!), but the boys had seemed so content to hang at the hotel so we did that this time around. We also always had dinner with Mikey when he was done at the office.
The main reason we went to Minneapolis was to attend the family Christmas party. It was pretty fun and a really unique location! Ethan played at least 3 games of mini-golf on a cool course designed by various artists. Micah and I played a whole lot of arcade games from the 60s, like bowling and foos ball.
We had a great time in Minneapolis, but by Friday afternoon we were headed to Wisconsin for some family time!
