Out and About

I’m happy to say that we’ve been out and about these past couple weekends and trying out a few new (to us)¬†places. Now that it’s April and getting a little warmer, I don’t really think I can claim hibernation as my favorite pastime anymore. We recently¬†went to the Can Can Wonderland in St. Paul for…
