While we were in Cornwall we walked across a field to Brad’s Aunt Nan and Uncle John’s house. Remember Aunt Nan’s shadow box art that I mentioned here? Turns out she loves to make paintings as well as sculptures out of gourds (so many gourds!). She even creates giant chocolate chip cookies, fried eggs and slippers by felting wool. The kids loved exploring her art and yoga studio (created from a chicken coop) and had even more fun using the dog door near the front entrance!

Our cousins came around and we wanted to show them the Staten Island Children’s Museum – but the day just got away from us. The weather was beautiful and the kids preferred to play in a giant sand box area in Brooklyn instead. By the time we got to Staten Island Ferry we were side tracked again by an outdoor acrobatic performance, and then the ferry trip itself became our destination. When we got to Staten Island we checked out the 9-11 Postcards sculpture/memorial to 9-11 victims (on St. George Esplanade) before getting back on the ferry and heading home to dinner. We even got a glimpse of Lady Liberty on the ferry ride back, and showed our ‘waving game’ to Stella while on the train!
(It’s worth noting that in one day we managed to be in 4 out of 5 boroughs of NYC, and used all modes of transportation except a taxi! What an accomplishment for little travelers.. )
