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

             170 Central Park W.
             New York, NY

Me - The Ruth Bader Ginsburg exhibit at the New York Historical Society was very interesting. Even though I knew about her before, I learned quite a lot that I didn't know. She was very inspirational. I enjoyed getting to know more about her. It was especially fascinating learning about some of the cases she worked on and how she was able to bring change. It was also very impressive how she was able to juggle her high-powered career and  a successful family life. She and her husband were definitely well suited to each other. They were lucky to have each other, and we were all lucky to have Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The World needs more people like her.

Mom -  The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a woman ahead of her time in so many ways. Taking a further look at her life and career is definitely worthwhile. The current exhibit at the New York Historical Society allows you to do that in a comprehensive and fun way. This very thorough exhibit includes numerous objects, documents, and photographs. There is one of her official Supreme Court robe and jabots, her official portrait on loan from the National Gallery and so much more. You can see her accepting her nomination to the Supreme Court at one of the many video screens or listen to her in action at the Supreme Court at one of the many listening stations. You can even watch home videos of her with her family. If you never knew that much about Justice Ginsburg before, this exhibit will show you what an amazing woman she was if you already knew that this exhibit will confirm what you already knew. You definitely won't want to pass up the opportunity to learn more about this amazing woman!

The New York Historical Society is currently open Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Friday 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Timed tickets are required for entry to the museum. All visitors 12 and up must be fully vaccinated and all visitors ages  5-11 must have received at least one  dose of the vaccine.  For more information or to purchase tickets, visit nyhistory.org.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
