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

Monthly Mash-up for June, 2017 - Hair Styling and The Theater That Movie Down the Block

My topic for this month is hair.  When you're little you can get away with any hairstyle because it looks cute. When you're older it's harder to pull off certain hairstyles. You can't wear your hair sticking straight up because it looks silly. You can't wear two ponytails because it makes you look like a five year old. I like long hair because it looks nice. However, it's harder to brush because there's a lot of it. Also, it takes longer to style. Like if you wanted to make a braid, it takes longer to braid because there is more hair. Also, it gets more knots. It also gets really frizzy when it's hot. It feels sweaty when your hair is on your neck when it's hot. Even if you put it up it still touches you and it still feels hot. Also, it fall down a lot when you put it up. Long hair is fun to play with though. You can also do a lot of fun hairstyles with long hair. However, it is easier to style someone else's hair than your own hair. You can't see in the back of your head, and it's hard to reach in the back of your head. All in all, hair styling can be fun, and it can also be annoying.

My topic for this month is  the theater that moved down the block. On 42nd Street in New York City, there is an AMC Movie Theater. However, this theater used to be a theater where stage shows were performed known as The Empire Theater. Prior to that it was a burlesque house called the Eltinge Theater and a number of famous actors and comedians played and may have gotten their starts there. Allegedly, it is also the place where Abbott and Costello first formed their famous partnership. The building still maintains some of the elements it had during the time when shows were presented there including the grand staircase. However, this building was not always situated at its present location. This building used to be located down the block. Back in 1998, it was decided that the theater needed to be moved approximately 170 feet down the road from where it was located  at that time so the theater was placed on rollers and literally pulled down the block. Making the move, even more entertaining, giant balloons of Abbott and Costello were attached to the building to make it appear as though, they were pulling the building down the street. So if you were in New York around that time, and you thought you saw Abbott and Costello moving a building down the street. you weren't crazy. It really happened.

And that's our view. What's on your mind?

Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.
