We took James up to Children's mueseum in St. Paul. We weren't there for very long, but he had a really good time exploring. They've put together some really good learning experiences for kids... One of which was a giant ant hill. Kids were free to climb in tunnels and scurry around... mostly older kids though. So when James wanted to go in, a parent had to accompany him.... that was me, and I never really understood claustrophobia until that experience. I really had to maintain a focus to keep from flipping out in there! The quarters were very, very tight for an adult, and in most places you couldn't see daylight... no big deal, but just kind of close I guess. Add to that dozens of 3-8 year old kids literally running over you, pushing by your little toddler.... interesting at the very least. James didn't mind though - he had a great time. He also took part in his first rock concert... danced a bit on stage while watching his very own live video on a monitor.
We had some snow too - 8-10 inches a couple weeks ago. It's gone now, but while it was here we got out a bit. James tipped over in his sled.... that turned him off, because his entire face became covered in snow. After that I'd ask him if he wanted to slide or "go fast" and he'd say "noo-ah" almost in an annoyed tone.
