11 Tours of Fall Color And Bonus Splurges

Fall color is one reason this is my favorite time of year.  I love the fun days of summer and the hopeful days of spring and the quietness of winter (until it starts to go on eight months and more, then it’s just being passive aggressive), but my absolute without a doubt favorite time of the year is the fall.  When the air turns crisp in the evenings and I can smell the earthy scent of the maturing plants, I shiver in delight. I grin when I can pull out my favorite sweater or jeans and lace up my cute leather boots while packing my children’s school supplies into their backpacks. While making a cup of coffee and wrapping myself in my favorite afghan to sit on my front step, I sigh.

Got Preschoolers? 10 Twin Cities Spots to Entertain & Educate

Kids are preschoolers for such a short time, aren’t they? Before you know it, they are heading off to school and then middle school and then conquering the world.

The fall has come where I find myself finally down to one kid at home during the day. My preschooler and I are now able to see her three older sibs off at the bus stop each morning and then stroll home to spend all that quality one-on-one time she’s been waiting her whole short life for. We’re also planning to tackle the list (below) of kid-centric activities around town that I’ve kept in my back pocket since my oldest could toddle. Let me share some of my favorite places to take preschoolers — and I’ll mention where it’s absolutely appropriate to bring older siblings as well. Please note that all of the following activities take place on weekdays. For more inspiration on where to take the entire family on the weekend, visit our Family Fun Calendar.
