On Saturday we went to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, which was free admission with our Hall of Science membership (who knew?). The boys were really drawn to the fish tanks, which were cleverly built low to the ground and along a series of tunnels you could crawl through to see the fish from the other side. There was also a big display on Chinese New Year (which I think is a permanent exhibit that’s up year round). They played in the water area and with a sound board that let you compose a mix of urban noise.
At home Andrew made dozens of paper boats and instructions on how to make your own paper boat.
And Isaac’s been figuring out the Tinker Toys.
After church on Sunday, I took a nap (!) and we were lazy bums for hours. But it was such a lovely afternoon and with day-light savings, it was promising to be a well lit evening, so we headed to Dumbo. We climbed on the rocks and threw pebbles at Manhattan.
And we rode the carousel.
And otherwise, just ran about.
It seems Spring is here. And with each blooming daffodil and each warm day I feel a very strong sense of “nooooo!!!! I’m not ready!” Winter let me down in a big, big way and I’m having a really hard embracing Spring. Hopefully that nonsense will wear off soon and I can just settle down and enjoy it. New York really is so beautiful in the Springtime.
Hope your weekend was a lovely one!
