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

Modern Pinball NYC & Matilda

We were given free passes to Modern Pinball NYC for review purposes.  Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.
Me- Modern Pinball NYC, wow! Modern Pinball NYC was fun. I loved the Wizard of Oz pinball machine.  That was my favorite. They also had The Simpsons, Monopoly and a bunch of others. I tried a bunch of different machines when I was there. I just liked The Wizard of Oz one best. I like the movie the Wizard of Oz, and it was a really fun machine. It reminded me of the movie. It was cool to see all the different kinds of pinball machine they had there. There were machines of TV shows, movies, games and other things. There was even a really old fashioned clown one. I didn't really like that one. It wasn't like the pinball machines I am used to. I liked that you didn't have to put money in the machines. You just paid for the time and played as long as you want. I am not really a big pinball player. However, I enjoyed Modern Pinball NYC.
Me -Matilda, wow! Matilda was a great show. It was really funny. The acting was good. The songs were good although only 3 or 4 were memorable. It was much darker than the movie. I read the book too, but I don't really remember it because it was so long ago. The show also had a lot of new things that weren't in the book or the movie that was the stuff that made it darker. My favorite songs are Revolting Children and Naughty. Parts of both of those songs are in the commercial for the show. Of course, my favorite character is Matilda. In this version, her brother was kind of funny. They way over exaggerated his stupidity. In the movie, he was much meaner. Also, in this version, the parents were much meaner than they were in the movie. I would definitely recommend seeing this show but just don't expect a light happy musical.

And that's Melia's view.

Funtivity Friday will be closed this week. Have a Happy New Year!

Tune in Sunday for this week's Sunday Scoop.
