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

Circle Line Hello Brooklyn Cruise and Stomp

We were given a free Hello Brooklyn Cruise for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Me -  Hello Brooklyn was amazingly fun. It was a boat ride around Manhattan and Brooklyn. They said they go to a lot of the same places as The Beast but slower. You could buy all kinds of food and drinks. The food and drinks all looked so good, but we only got two waters. I liked that it was a break from all the heat because the boat makes a breeze when the boat moves fast. We even learned some stuff. One thing we learned is that there is a carousel right by one part of the water. If you don't like cold air or get very sea sick I would not recommend going. On the other hand, if you love a fun boat ride, great food,  don't get sea sick, and are okay with cool air like me, I would really recommend going on Hello Brooklyn.
 We were given free tickets to Stomp for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are own based on our experience.

Me - Stomp was loud.  It was very unique. It was very musical. They made music with different things, such as, brooms, feet, hands, newspapers, buckets, water in kitchen sinks, bags and banana peels. Some of the music was much too loud for me. I liked the quieter sounding ones. Those were pretty. There was one guy in the show who was really funny. He did these little comedy bits, but without talking. There was no talking in the show. There was no singing in the show. It was all music and there were no musical instruments. They just made music using all different things. It was interesting and cool the way they could using common objects to make music. When we tried to do something like that, it didn't turn out as well. It didn't make as pretty sounds.  The cast must be really talented to make music like that.

Tune in tomorrow for Funtivity Friday and more about our efforts to make music with common objects.
