I’ve been depressed that August is drawing to a close. I can’t believe how quickly this summer is passing – and kids are going to be in school again soon. Although honestly it’s almost better to have them in school while we work on our new house. I’m afraid they’ve seen wayyyyyy too much of Home Depot this summer.

In these last weeks we’ve been trying to see more of friends (who are now out of day camp). A little game of Twister, a trip to South Street Seaport. We went to the Imagination Playground downtown, where kids are encouraged to use giant blue foamy blocks to create something together. I wish school could be like this for the kids .. instead of books and sitting still, some time to work in teams and create something. At least we can get them to this once in awhile – while the weather is still nice.

Well the little ones returned to LegoLand again – this time to the LegoLand in Yonkers NY. While there aren’t as many ‘big rides’ as there were in the Florida location, there are still lots of fun stations to build in. Ezra finally got to spend some solid time making and racing some lego cars, and Zoe met a BFF in the movie theater! And look – you can enter to try to win the VIP treatment and trip for 4 to LegoLand Florida by clicking here!

Really, does the name get any better than this? So far this is hands down the best children’s museum I’ve ever been to. Maybe I’m mostly impressed that this gorgeous old building was salvaged and converted to a children’s museum, instead of simply mowed down and built anew. Or maybe I love how many of the old toys and artifacts are woven into the new exhibits instead of being set aside to another section of the museum. Honestly it seems all kids’ museums have the same exhibits: the car garage and gas station, the water play area — but Please Touch does it bigger and better. And downstairs included a doll hospital, play McDonald’s Restaurant, and an amazing 2 story tree surrounded by an Alice in Wonderland play zone. We loved driving through Philadelphia in the first place, now this museum gives us even more reason to visit!
