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

New York Hall of Science and How to Be An American

We were given free tickets to the New York Hall of Science for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience.

Me - The New York Hall of Science was fun. It was truly very interactive. There were all kinds of experiments you could do. There was a thing where you pulled a string up and when you pulled it up it created a huge colorful bubble. The bubble was really cool and pretty.In another place, you could make your own bubbles. It was really hard though. You had to get the soap and the water together and lift it up to make a bubble.  There was a screen where when you moved  it made pictures on a screen. There were fun house mirrors.  There was a room that was tilted so if you stood at the top you could touch the ceiling. They even had actual living birds. There were places where you could do art, but we didn't do any. There was a miniature golf course. I was not happy because we didn't have time to play because we got there too late. I love mini golf. I would like to go back there and play some day. The New York Hall of Science was a really unique and interesting place.

Me- How To Be An American was a good show. It didn't really have that much of a plot. These three men were talking to the people about how to become American and about how to go about voting. The things they were saying were not alway true. Like they said "Vote early. Vote often. Vote Tammany." but you can really only vote once. It was funny. Some parts were funnier than others. At one point, they were trying to teach people to how to disguise themselves so they can vote more than once. They took people up from the audience and they put fake beards and mustaches on them. Then, they took the beards off. Then, they took the mustaches off. It was really funny. There were songs. They were old songs. I didn't know any of them before except Yankee Doodle Dandy, and the Star Spangled Banner. They made us stand for the Star Bangled Banner. I never had to do that at a show before. It was an interesting show unlike any that I have ever seen before.
And that's Aurella's view. Tune in tomorrow for Funtivity Friday.
