I Happen To Like New York…

I took the kids into the city today to the Museum of Natural History – FABULOUS!
We had the most AMAZING time! I hadn’t been there in years (I used to basically hang out there when I first moved to the city in 1982 – 20 years ago??? Is that sad or cool? I was kind of an oddball hipster preppie-punk girl in those days…)
After seeing PULSE and the Chocolate exhibit we visited the dioramas (they LOVED them!) the Whale (LOVED IT!) and we especially like the Hayden Planetarium Discovery Center – all the way home they played with the photo-sensitive beads they got from the really nice guy at the hands-on experiment station.
And why did we go? Because my amazing knitting student and friend Athena gave us passes – she thought the kids would enjoy it. So thoughtful.
After the museum we went on a walk through Central Park. We visited the lake, walked over the bow bridge, saw the Bethesda fountain, the sheep meadow, watched the lawn bowlers – and finally ended our CP adventure with a ride on the wonderful Carousel (okay, two rides…) What a tremendous day.
