Today we met up with our cousins Elias (3) and Cerwyn (2.5 months) and visited the Wild Rumpus. This is probably the most amazing book store. ever.
It's an independently owned, hole in the wall bookstore that focuses directly on kids ages 18 months- 10 years old or so. Imagine being a kid and going into a book store with roosters, cats, ferrets, birds, and chinchillas to see/pet. There are floorboards that have been removed and replaces with plexiglass so you can even see the pets wandering around under your feet.
They even have a recycling "center" where books range from .50 to $1.00 (my kind of place)! Next month we are going to try to make it to their "PJ Party on the Trolley" (tickets go fast), where you come in your pajamas at 6:30 p.m. and you eat milk and cookies while they read bedtime stories and you ride the trolly around Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun. We can't wait!
