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

Reading Into History: Salt by Helen Frost
Sun, May 31st, 2015 | 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Recommended for families with kids ages 9-12; free with museum admission
Helen Frost brings us a rare story, written completely in verse, of two boys growing up in the Indiana Territory in 1812. Anikwa and James’ worlds are the same and totally different. When the burgeoning war between America and Great Britain occurs in their backyard at Fort Wayne, precious trade commodities like salt become scarce, threatening the lives of Anikwa’s Miami tribe and new settlers like James. Frost shows us how the War of 1812 divided native and settler communities who had enjoyed a brief period of mutual dependence, and gives readers a peek at a conflict rarely explored in schools. Come discuss Indiana Territory and the War of 1812 with author Helen Frost. After discussion and Q&A, families will get to visit the galleries and explore artifacts from the War of 1812, including a model ship with a fascinating past.

The York Theatre Company presents the New York premiere of the awarding-winning Cagney, a high-stepping, explosive new musical about legendary star and the screen’s greatest tough-guy, James Cagney.  Cagney follows the actor from his humble beginnings in New York City's Lower East Side through his rise as a vaudeville song-and-dance man to his superstardom in Hollywood. In this insightful and surprising musical journey, a brand new original score filled with show-stopping song and dance numbers is augmented by George M. Cohan songs.   Cagney was the consummate performer who could do it all – sing, dance, play the bad guy, the good guy, the patriot, the gangster; Broadway’s Robert Creighton leads a cast of six in this exciting new musical. Cagney will have audiences cheering.
