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 - The Van Cleef and Arpels Noah's Ark exhibit was an exhibit of jewlery created and shaped to look like the animals from Noah's Ark. The jewelry was really pretty. There were giraffes. There were blue and green butterflies. The blue one was pretty. There were lots of different birds. There was one that was blue and purple. Those were my favorite birds. I liked them because they were pretty and cute. There were zebras and dogs. There were these two foxes that were pink and gold. I really liked them because they were cute. There were also bunnies, kangaroos, and turtles. There were others too, but those were some of my favorites. It was really cool to see all the jewelry shaped like animals. They made it seem like you were really on Noah's Ark at the exhibit because there were thunder noises and the lights flickered every now and then. The jewlery looked really pretty all lit up when the lights went out. Over all, it was a really interesting exhibit, and I would highly recommend going.

Mom - If you love animals and you love beautiful jewelry, you will enjoy Van Cleef and Arpel's Noah's Ark inspired collection. The collection is full of glittery sparkly pairs of jewels in the shape of animals. There are lovely ladybugs, cute kittens, and bedazzled birds of all types and much more. The jewelry was designed by Robert Wilson for Van Cleef & Arpels and will be on display through November 19. The exhibit is open on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays 12:00 PM - 8:00 PM, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM, and on Sundays 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. There is no fee to visit the exhibit. However, on-line reservations can be made. If you are going at a time when the exhibit is likely to be crowded, it is best to make reservations since the exhibit space is small and only a certain number of people are allowed in at a time. Although this is not a bad exhibit for children since children love animals and brightly colored things and the exhibit is not very big, keep in mind that there are periodic thunder sound effects and simulated flashes of lightening to give you the feeling that you are really on Noah's Ark that may frighten children who scare easily. For anyone who doesn't frighten easily, this is definitely an exhibit worth seeing.
