Get Moving: Tot Times, Open Play, Gym & Swim Spots for Tots in the Twin Cities

Tot Times and Open Gym was my savior when my firstborn was a squirrelly toddler who needed a space to run off his pent-up wintertime energy. A few years later, I had four littles under the age of 7 who were climbing the walls and testing the limits of my sanity. Perhaps you find yourself in the same boat? Browse through the listings below to find an open gym, open playtime or open swim near you and treat yourself to a (near) guaranteed naptime:Tot Times

Ski and Snowboard–Fun with Dad

 

 

Family Fun With Dad

 

Meet Jeff Lenz. He is a local dad who likes to spend time with his family outdoors.  Right now in this winter season, he likes to ski with his girls.

I met Jeff at my 20th high school reunion where I grew up with Kassie his wife.  Reconnecting with Kassie and meeting her husband were some of the best parts of the reunion.  When I learned that they lived in South Minneapolis (and we laughed at how we both were small town girls who wanted to live in an actual city), I asked Jeff if he wouldn’t mind sharing how he and his family spend time together.

Lake Nokomis Main Beach–Sandy Fun for Everyone

Beach Day with Family Fun TWin cities

Finally at the beach!

For the past five summers, I have made it a priority to get to the beach each week with my kids–to really take advantage of the Minnesota weather and Minnesota lakes.

This year, much to my kids’ chagrin, is the first year in the past five that hasn’t been successful in this endeavor.  It wasn’t until July 11 that we made it to the beach.

So we made an excursion of it, heading down to South Minneapolis to explore Lake Nokomis’ Main Beach.
