After our day at the Jersey Shore we all slept well which was a good thing since the next day was jam-packed. Mom and I took the kiddos in to New York City for a day with my brother. Two Spring Breaks ago the kiddos and I spent a day with Uncle Tom in NYC and the kids have been begging to go back. I wish I had taken a picture of when I told them that the stars had lined up for them again - they were so excited!
A big part to our NYC trip was just getting into the city. First we took the train into the city. L was so excited to be on a train. I can't count the number of times he said "cool" during the ride.
Unfortunately, L was not as excited for his first cab ride. Smiles from the older two. L not so much!
After a quick stop at Uncle Tom's apartment we headed up to the Upper West Side. Our first stop was at the Children's Museum of Manhattan. The museum has five levels and each level has a different themed exhibit. We spent most of our time on the lower level which housed the STEAM exhibit. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and math. This level was filled with hands on experiments and DIY projects.
In all honesty, this is the only level that appealed to all three of my kiddos. It is really is hard to make an eleven year old, nine year old and five year old happy with the same activity so I think CMOM is really doing something right with their STEAM exhibit!
