Summer Family Activities at Caponi Art Park
Last year, we road-tripped with all four kids to New York State. We spent time by Lake Michigan, in the Allegheny Mountains, and at the Erie Canal and Niagara Falls. It was so memorable and extremely fun. I did not expect it to be as much fun as it was. But the trip and my family exceeded my expectations. I was thrilled.
Unfortunately, this year, we had to update our bathroom instead of going on vacation. Good for the house, bad for a vacation. So this year, we plan on discovering the family programs around town. With two elementary-aged kids and two preschool-aged kids--well for that matter, two adults, we are becoming a diverse culture of our own. Even with all the different interests, scattered around the Twin Cities are Family-designed activities.
Caponi Art Park in Eagan hosts not one but two of those activities: AM Artist-Led Explorations (formerly Family Fun Tuesdays) and Summer Performance Series. Both of these activities are fun for the whole family!
Go to one performance, go to them all. Whatever you choose to do, you will have a memorable experience with your whole family. I am putting this on my calendar. I hope to see you there!
