Ahhhh New York Hall of Science, you never cease to amaze us with your improvements and very cool exhibits for kids. We loved the very interactive Connected Worlds and hope to find it exhibited somewhere else soon! By moving electronic logs we could shift the water flow, and waving our arms about made things grow and move. Check out this amazing video to see it all in motion:

Oh my poor neglected blog… it’s been too long. I’ve left these photos in the phone forever and now finally have them to show; Ezra’s very grown-out hair and all.
This all happened way back at the beginning of the summer when the weather was even a bit cool. I don’t know what we were thinking – Crawfish, yum? When we got there and saw a gazillion crawfish in a basket I think we all collectively thought “Crawfish, ew!” So in the end we didn’t eat any, but we enjoyed the transported orangey sand and the live bands, and of course the art on the island is always great.

Some snippets of our world this and last week –
Once a year the sun sets perfectly between buildings on 23rd-34th Street (and others on the West side) and here in NYC we call it ‘Manhattanhenge‘. Sadly I missed it this year (which is odd seeing as I work near to here) but I’ve seen it in past years, and it is beautiful. Photos below via instagram :

We ‘won’ an opportunity to go camping in one of NYC’s parks (via the Parks Dept.) I think we were ‘going for’ a night at Central Park, and got a park in Inwood instead. It’s located at 218th st on the west side of Manhattan. We were supplied with tents, s’mores, and new friends – and about 4-6 park rangers who took us on a late night hike! There was a skunk family tip toeing around as we slept, but otherwise it was all quite peaceful. And who knew there is so much Native American history there?
(have a great weekend!)
