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

NYC Kids Tour: Greenwich Village Tour

We were given a free NYC Kids Tour for review purposes any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience.

Me - Our  NYC Kids Tour of  Greenwich Village was fun. For the tour, we started at the big CVS that used to be a bank and walked around all over Greenwich Village with a tour guide telling us interesting facts. Our tour guide was really nice. His name was Ari.  I liked that this tour was specifically for kids since some other tours might be boring for kids. I got a fun workbook. The tour guide asked me lots of questions. I got to touch things. I got to taste. a cupcake. Of course, I got to see a lot. It was interesting. I learned a lot of things I didn't know before. Like I learned that the big CVS used to be a savings bank, and I learned why the clock outside it has a sculpture of a beehive on top of it. I also learned why the roof of the CVS is green. It is because it is copper and rain changes the color like what happened to the Statue of Liberty. We also talked about how places that are called whatever square are usually really triangles. For instance, Jackson Square is really in the shape of a triangle even though it is called Jackson Square. I learned that there are a lot of good places to eat in Greenwich Village. They have a lot of pizza places. I would like to eat there because I love pizza, and they had a lot of other places that looked good to eat  at too. They had a lot of good dessert places also like bakeries, chocolate shops and candy shops. Our tour guide got us each a cupcake from The Magnolia Bakery. He didn't tell us he was getting them he just asked if we liked chocolate or vanilla. I said chocolate. My Mom said vanilla. So he got me a chocolate cupcake and Mom a vanilla one. They were delicious! Over all, it was a really fun tour and I highly recommend going on it with your kids or even if you don't have kids it is still a fun tour.

And that's Aurella's view. Tune in tomorrow for Funtivity Friday.
