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

Me - Foods of NY: Chelsea Market Food Tour was delicious. It was tour a of Chelsea Market, and you got to try different foods.  I liked that we got to try different foods and learned facts about the market and about some of the stores in it. We even learned a little about the High Line which is an overheard park right near Chelsea Market. Most food tours you walk around outside over a wide area, but the Chelsea Market food tour is mostly just inside Chelsea Market so there is a little less walking. Some of the foods we got to try were fried Oreos, salted caramel, ice cream. biscuits, beef tartar, kale and meat pie. We also ate sandwiches. My favorite was the ice cream.  It was at Ample Hill's Creamery. Some of the other places we went to were Sarabeth's Bakery, Dickinison's Farm Stand Meats and Cappone's Italian Specilaities. There is a painting of the old logo from Nabisco. It is of a boy standing out in the rain with a package of cookies. Nabisco used to be located where Chelsea Market is now. There used to be a train that ran through Chelsea Market so they have these high windows so that they  could open them and let the steam from the train out. On the whole, the Chelsea Market Food Tour was really fun, and the food was really good.
Mom - Foods of NY: Chelsea Market Food Tour is the perfect tour if you want a walking tour that is contained within a smaller area than they average walking tour. It is also a great tour for when it is too hot or too cold or just generally not a very nice day outside because most of the tour takes place inside Chelsea Market. Of course, you shouldn't just wait for bad weather if you want to have the opportunity to sample some of the delicious foods they have to offer at Chelsea Market. On this tour you will get to visit many of the restaurants and shops located within the market and taste some of the delectable foods they have available. Some of the tasty foods you can try on this tour include Buttermilk Biscuits, Australian Beef Pie, Sea-Salted Caramel, and Ooey Gooey Butter Cake Ice Cream. The tour also includes Gansevoort Market, which is a smaller market located not far from Chelsea Market. Additionally, you will the opportunity to visit the High Line, the overhead park that used to be a train line. If you are interested in history, you will also enjoy learning about some of the background of these locations while you visit them. This is not  a tour for very young children who would probably be bored and who also tend to be pickier eaters and probably would not enjoy many of the samples offered. Older children especially those that are open to trying a wide variety of foods would love it, however.
