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.. )

Some time ago we saw the Figment show at Governors Island – and I completely forgot about the photos I took until now. We love Governors Island because the kids always love a ride on the ferry, and the island is ‘car free’ so we can scoot and bike everywhere. The forts on the island are particularly interesting as well.
Of course being such a huge fan of tree houses – I found the piece by Benjamin Jones to be the most exciting piece in the show. You can see it in the photos below and it’s my newest dream house to date. The ‘giant hands’ were great too and Zoe loved the dress up aspect of the day.

(Another momma blogger from our ‘hood posted some images of Figment as well … check them out here – and note I’m not alone in my tree house lust!)
