This past weekend felt part end-of-winter-break and part back-to-regular-weekends. Our friends, the Cruzen-Grossmans came over on Saturday. For Christmas we got Isaac an indoor swing-hammock-trapese bar that attaches into a doorway. (See here) Tess decided to test it out.


And so did Nora.

And then we all headed to the local park to frolic in the snow.

And when we got home there was some play on the trapeze bar.

The indoor swing is turning out to be quite a popular toy around here. :)

It was great to see our friends and spend some time with them.  It had been awhile and it was definitely fun to get together.

Then on Sunday we went to the Science Museum.


Where the boys made symmetrical snowflakes.


And had a good look at various minerals.


And spent a long time making jumbo bubbles.

There was a display about designing outdoor equipment for people with physical impairments.  Andrew designed a canoe for a man with no arms.  I love watching this kid design things.  :)



And then we went through the Hall of Mirrors…a family favorite.





And now it’s Monday morning.  The kids are at school and I am ready to get my projects and time organized for the New Year.   Good bye holidays and hello regular.  :)  Last night Andrew asked me if we were all done having fun now and I said “yes!  2013 was all about fun and 2014 will be all about no-fun!”  and then…”wait.  You didn’t have fun today did you?  You weren’t suppose to….”  ha!  :)

I’d say we’re off to a pretty fun start. :) May yours be lots of fun too!

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.

    Right, that’s it … when we come to NYC in April, we have to meet at the Science Museum! On a slightly more serious note, planning is on-going and I should have firm dates for our visit soon … I do hope they will fit in the boys’ Easter break. Oh, and we will be three, because my mum is coming as well!

    Love your ‘no-fun’ comment…I bet you all laughed about that. I think of NY as crowded, and so full of people, cars, etc., and when I see your wonderful photos, it has such a quality of peace to them….I love how you take the opportunity to explore and discover all the wonderful aspects of city life. You make it look so simple and easy..but I know you work like crazy as a dedicated, loving mom. Thank you for sharing all your “fun”.
