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

A Midsummer Nights Dream at the Kelsey Theatre
1200 Old Trenton Rd.
West Windsor, NJ

Friday April 1, 2016 to Sunday April 10, 2016 
Start with four hopelessly entangled young lovers ... Add a royal wedding, some traveling thespians, and some serious parenting problems ... And send everyone off to the enchanted woods, where they get caught in the crossfire between the King and Queen of the Faeries. Lord, what fools these mortals be! 
But those things do best please me that befall preposterously. And this funny, sexy, goofy comedy full of mistaken identity, love potions, mayhem, mystical creatures, ass-headed weavers and nature gone mad is just what I, Puck, love! Melding the world of dance and Shakespeare, reinventing this timeless love story with a blend of jazz and poetry makes for one wonderful, magical midsummer night’s dream.

In A Funny Thing Happened…, a foul-mouthed twenty-something comedian and a middle-aged man embroiled in a nasty divorce are brought together unexpectedly when their cancer-stricken mothers become roommates in the hospital. Together, this unlikely duo must negotiate some of life’s biggest challenges... while making some of the world’s most inappropriate jokes. Can these two very lost people learn to laugh through their pain and lean on each other when all they really want to do is run away?
And that's the Scoop. Tune in tomorrow for the Monthly Mash-up.
