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

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Somebody Come and Play: 45 Years of Sesame Street

 What:  Somebody Come and Play: 45 Years of Sesame Street
           Helping Kids Grow Smarter, Stronger, and Kinder

Where: The New York Library for the Performing Arts
             40 Lincoln Center Plaza
             New York, New York

When: Now through January 31, 2015

Who: All Ages
 Our view: If you and/or your children grew up on Sesame Street, you'll love this exhibit. You'll love it for the nostalgia. Your kids will love it because not only will they have the opportunity to see some of their Sesame Street favorites including Bert, Ernie, Elmo and Big Bird, they will also have a chance to participate in interactive exhibits. They can draw their own Muppet.  They can have their picture taken with some Muppets in the Muppet photo booth. They can feel different types of feathers, fur etc. that is used in making various Muppets. There is even an interactive Oscar that pops out of his trash can at the push of a button. Even if your child is afraid of seeing their favorite characters come to live, they should still enjoy this exhibit because there are no live interactive characters and Oscar is the only one that actually moves. Adults and older children will enjoy the interactive table where you can look up a multitude of Sesame Street facts including which Muppets have appeared on Sesame Street, which human characters have appeared on Sesame Street, Sesame Street puppeters, and highlights of Sesame Street from various decades. There are also other interesting artifacts included in the exhibit, such as, original song sheets and storyboards. All of this great nostalgia for parents and fun for kids is available for free as there is no cost  for attending the exhibit. For more information go to http://www.nypl.org/sesamestreet.
