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!

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.

    I’m ready for Autumn, we had an up and down summer, but our winters are mild so I am happy to embrace the cooler weather!

    My kids have seen me reading your post today, they are interested in ‘who those boys are’ and your city!

    Haha, as soon as I saw the first picture, without having read, I wondered if that could be the BCM–we know all of its nooks and crannies. You were in our neck of the woods! My son loves the tanks too, especially the little tunnel. He can sit there for hours if you let him. We’ve never been to Dumbo, though, in all these years living here. Have to make a point of visiting. And, hey, I’ll take this lovely spring weather. So ready for it. Winter and I don’t get along too well.
