Welcome to Minnesota! :)
We currently live in Edina, but my husband, toddler son, and I are getting ready to move away at the end of May... but we'll miss it here! I hope you enjoy living here too. Here are some fun things we've done here in the Cities:
-Como Zoo-- free in St. Paul
-MN Zoo-- a membership is really nice, since it costs about the equivalent of 2 visits there, I think. Also, the libraries sometimes have free passes to the zoo in the Adventure Passes display.
-Splash pads-- we've gone to the St. Louis Park Splash Pad. Free water fun! There are a few more around here though.
-parks, parks, parks! Seems like there is one every 2 or 3 blocks around here.
-Lots of lakes for free summer swimming and there are free wading pools in Minneapolis too.
-Edinborough Park is an indoor park/playground down here in Edina. It's $6/child (free for adults) for the playground. Great for the winter.
-Some places have open gyms in the winter time for toddlers. We went to the Edina Community Center and it was $3/child, free/parents ($5 max for a family).
-ECFE- Early Childhood Family Education-- great classes and you can meet other moms easily
-I don't know if you're looking for a church, but North Heights is close to you, in Arden Hills. We've been blessed by our time there. They have Mothers Fellowship time (just finished for this season though... not sure of future times).
-MN Children's Museum!!!!!
-Minnehaha Falls is a beautiful park to spend a day in... also has a little wading pool/splash area for kids.
Welcome to MN! Make sure to get up to Duluth and Gooseberry Falls too. :)
