So much going on here. Grant had spring break last week and I gave the boys a list of activities that they could choose from, we spent a lot of time at parks and the activity they chose off the list was to go to the Natural History Museum.
Ummm....they were not amused or impressed. Look at their faces in this picture. And no, that is not meant to be the Whatever W it's supposed to be three horns. Get it? I think after seeing the movie A Night at The Museum they were expecting talking and moving things.
It was so big though that we haven't yet been to the space section or the children's exploration room so hopefully they will like it better the next time.
And they did really, really like the Water exhibit and I actually enjoyed it too. I learned a lot for example Did you know that Americans use around 510 gallons of water a day while people in the UK only use 120. Ummmm that's a big difference and it makes me sad that we waste so much water. We will be working on that around our house.
We also explored a few cupcake bakeries. Which was an activity well loved by everyone. I'm thinking a fun family Saturday would be to go to a few different cupcake shops and vote on our favorite. There are a ton here. Sadly though New Yorkers seem to really like dry cake, and ummmm can I just say yuck. This pretty cupcake below....dryer than cardboard, but still photographs well. lol.
Other than that I passed this on my way home from a business lunch. Don't mind the picture, I was trying to take it while defending myself from some guy who told me I had the most beautiful dimples he had ever seen and could we get coffee to which I held up my left hand and then he said and I quote, "I'll be your dirty little mistress". To which I said, "Ummm lines from Grey's Anatomy don't work on me. Thanks but no thanks." All of this went on while I was struggling to get my camera out of my purse so I could hurry up and take the photo. I think I'm a magnet for crazy.
Anyway, the late night show...with taxi's in front. What's more NYC than that?
And then I went to Tinsel and Trading Company. Hello, vintage trims, vintage flowers, and German glass glitter? I think I'm in love.
Here is a photo from the outside looking in. See all those colorful things on the wall? They are sample flowers on the wall of boxes and boxes of vintage goodness.
