Week 3 (January 18th-24th): Natural History

Posted on

We took the kids to the Museum of Natural History in NYC on MLK, Jr. Day. We knew it would be a bit crowded but got there early enough to beat some of the crowds. Thanks to the Night at the Museum movies and some internet research, Caroline and Liam had their day mapped out before we even found a parking spot.

We hit all the highlights and spent a lot of time just looking and moving. They loved the animal exhibits and the ocean life hall. The dinosaur area was way too crowded by the time we got around to checking it out, so we didn’t really spend a lot of time there. Liam couldn’t wait to see “Num num” from the movie but by that time in the afternoon, Caroline was over it.

Just as we were getting ready to leave because the crowds were getting to us and the kids were dragging, Liam reminded us that we needed to see Teddy Roosevelt. So, here are the kids chilling with #26.

Oh, by the way, we found out the hard way that you aren’t suppose to sit on him. Opps. Sorry, Teddy.

Week 42 (October 13th-October 19th): Intrepid

Posted on

We had our first full family outing in New York City. We made the “trek” into NYC to visit the Intrepid. (http://www.intrepidmuseum.org/adventure/) Liam thought he was our tour guide, given that he has been to THEE city before. Caroline tried to talk us into swinging by the American Girl headquarters. There was plenty to do and see and we didn’t even get to the shuttle or submarine. Jeff’s already talking about *maybe* taking the kids in to the city this Christmas. It’s nice being close enough to make the trip in and do some of these things, but I still wouldn’t want to live there. Just don’t tell Liam I said that!
