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 - Teknopolis was  fun. My favorite part was the virtual reality especially one with a virtual alien pet called Bogo. I love animals so it was really cool to get to play with a virtual one. The other virtual reality things were fun too. Bogo was just my favorite. There was one that was sort of like being in a Kaleidoscope. There was also one where you could play virtual hide and seek with another person. That was one so popular that I never had a chance to try it. There were also virtual reality movies you could watch. I watched one called Under the Sea. It was interesting but it was kind of hard to understand what they were saying, but it was still cool looking at the animals and stuff. I also liked these instruments that you could play that were made out of cleaning materials like dust pans and brooms. While I was in that section, there were some Japanese people taking videos, and they asked if it would be okay to use the video in Japan. I am not sure how to feel about that. It is kind of strange. I have never been to Japan. It's kind of cool in a way too that I might be on a video in Japan. Over all, Teknopolis was a really enjoyable experience.


Mom - Teknopolis is an interactive digital arts showcase that is fun for the whole family. You not only get to learn about new technologies, you get to play with them too. SMing gives you the opportunity to be a conductor and a whole orchestra at the same time. Style Transfer Mirrors reflect the world in the styles of iconic paintings instead of as it actually exists. If you ever wanted to see what you would look like as an iconic style painting, this is your chance to do so. The Singing Tunnels repeat what you sing back to you. These are only a few of the amazing new inventions that are part of this year's show. There are also several entertaining virtual reality experiences you can participate in, as long as you are 9 and up, and a whole selection of short virtual reality films to watch. Access to Teknopolis is available in 2 1/2 hour blocks of time, but there is so much to do that your time there will pass in the blink of an eye. It is so popular that  there are already only limited tickets remaining so if you are interested we highly recommend making reservations as soon as possible.

And that's our view. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit

Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
