I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Madame Tussauds New York

 We were not financially compensated for this post. We were given tickets to Madame Tussauds New York for review purposes. The opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience visiting the museum.

 Me - Madame Tussauds, wow! It was really fun. There are so many different kinds of wax figures. Some of them look real; and some of them don't. In the room where you came in there was a fountain. It was really pretty. All around the fountain were the wax figures of movie stars.  There was a room with singers like Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. Katy Perry and Taylor Swift didn't look real. Carrie Underwood did. I really liked the figures of Carrie Underwood and the Beatles. There was a room with sports figures like David Wright, Derek Jeter, and Serena Williams. In another room, there were political people including some Presidents and their wives and William and Kate. There was a room with New York icons like the Statute of Liberty, and a Rockette. They even had a statute of Madame Tussaud herself. She was really small. I didn't like the 4D Superhero movie because I had a bad headache. Otherwise, I probably would have liked it. Madame Tussauds was super fun, and if you have the chance you should totally go there.

Mom - I have always liked wax museums. The best one I have ever been to is Madame Tussauds. I  have been to Madame Tussauds in London and New York. I went to the one in New York several times. It really changed a lot from the first time I went there to the most recent. I like that about it. I also like that as you walk around there are plaques near each figure to tell you who the person is. There are also plaques that provide more information about the wax figures in general like how they are made. Unfortunately, it takes much too long and the museum is generally much too crowded to have time to stop and read each plaque. The information on them is very interesting, however, and I would have liked to have had time to read them all. Over ten years passed between my first visit to Madame Tussauds and my most recent one. In that time, the museum has changed a lot. It would be interesting to go every few years or so and see how much things change in that time. The changes in the museum are reflective of the changes that have taken place in the world during the same period of time. Some people who may have been really famous at one time have faded from view while others have become famous. Life goes on and on and the world keeps changing and Madame Tussauds changes right along with it. They only thing that doesn't change is that it remains the most famous wax museum in the world.

And that's our view. Who would you most wanted to see represented in wax at a Madame Tussaud's location?
