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 Aquarium and The Midtown Men at State Theatre New Jersey

Me -  New York Aquarium was not as good as expected. Most of it is under renovation.Pretty much a bunch of little fish, sea lions, and sharks. I liked the Sea Lion show. The Sea Lions were so cute. They had a really small one. It was the cutest thing. The sea lions walked around so that people could get a closer view of them. The Sea Lion show was the best part of the aquarium. It was much better than the last sea lion show I saw because in the last sea lion show I saw, they didn't do anything. They just swam around. We also saw sharks. There was a touch tank, but when we went over the animals were sleeping. It made me angry. I would like to go back when the renovations are finished and hopefully, they will have more sea creatures for people to see than now.
We were given free tickets to The Midtown Men concert at State Theatre New Jersey for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.
Me - The Midtown Men concert was fun. I liked Jersey Boys so I liked The Midtown Men. I like the songs that they sang. The ones that I didn't know were still nice too. Some I thought I didn't know, but once they started getting into the song they were nice. I didn't know I knew so many songs from the sixties. I knew more than I thought I did. Some of the songs I knew from commercials. Some I knew from the radio. Some I knew from Jersey Boys or other Broadway shows like Motown the Musical. My favorite songs were the ones I already knew. I especially liked the Jersey Boys songs along with some others, but I don't remember what the others were now.  I wish they would have sang Sherry, Can't Take My Eyes Off of You and some of the other songs from Jersey Boys that they didn't sing. However, we were lucky because at the performance we saw they actually sang more songs from Jersey Boys than they usually do. It was very interesting learning about the members of the group and the things they did before they were in Jersey Boys. The Midtown Men put on a really enjoyable concert.

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

  1. WOW! What a neat aquarium. I would love to see this aquarium in New York. It is really cool and fun to take the kids to see!

    1. It will be better when they are finished renovating. In the meantime, if you want to see a really nice aquarium go to Adventure Aquarium in Camden, New Jersey. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom and for your comment.
