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

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Ripley's Believe It Or Not Times Square and American Folk Art Museum

We were given free tickets to Ripley's Believe It or Not Times Square for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.
What: Ripley's Believe It or Not Times Square

Where: 234 W. 42nd St.
              New York, NY

Who: All ages (although some parts of the museum be scary for young children)
Me & Mom - You never know what you are going to see at Ripley's. Your mother may have told you not to play with your food. However, whoever created the latest exhibit at Ripley's Believe It or Not Times Square did not go by that rule. The exhibit is completely created out of Cheetos. There are large figures of Chester the Cheetah, the Cheetos mascot. There are walls decorated entirely with Cheetos. There are small figures made out of Cheetos. The small figures didn't look so much like what they were supposed to be. However, the larger figures are amazing! You won't want to miss them. The Cheetos exhibit will be at Ripley's Times Square through August 8.

What: American Folk Art Museum

Where: 2 Lincoln Square
             New York, NY

Who: All ages
Me & Mom - The American Folk Art Museum is a located near Lincoln Center. The museum is devoted to self-taught artists. It is very small and quick to go through. It is also completely free. Although it might not be that interesting for young children just to go in and view the art, depending what is being exhibited at the time, the museum has events and activities for families including ones where children have the opportunity to create their own art. There are also events for adults like documentary screenings as well as events for all ages including Summer Saturday. Summer Saturday, coming up this Saturday July 22, 2017, is an all day free event which includes live music, artists demos, tours and more.

Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
