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 & Mom - At the New Jersey State Police Museum, there is a whole exhibit on the Lindbergh kidnapping case. The kidnapping took place nearby in Hopewell, NJ. Recently, the new Travel Channel television series, Mission Declassified, had an episode that focused on the case, and during the episode they visited the New Jersey State Police Museum. The exhibit  at the museum includes many of the actual items related to the case. There are ransom notes. There is the ladder used to carry the baby out of the house.  When you see the ladder, it is hard to believe a man could walk down that ladder carrying a baby. There is the outfit the baby was wearing when he was kidnapped. There is some of the ransom money. There is also a whole lot more including a very large box which was used to hold evidence from the case and the electric chair where Bruno Richard Hauptmann, the man convicted of the crime, was put to death. There was also a videoscreen where you could watch new clips from the time of the trial.  If you are interested in learning more about the Lindbergh case, the New Jersey State Police Museum is a great place to go.
