It’s no secret that fall is the absolute best season, don’t debate me. The weather is often perfect, and it is the beginning of holiday fun. When I was a kid we went pumpkin and apple picking in school. We did hay rides and corn mazes and I looked forward to the start of the holiday season. Do they even do that in school anymore? I only have a kindergartener so I could just be unaware but I haven’t heard any pumpkin or apple talk from any of the children that I know that are older. The child in me still loves these activities and I take the boys to the pumpkin patch EVERY year. It’s a tradition I’m not willing to let go of. So of course I scouted out my favorite pumpkin patches near NYC, and I can’t keep the goods to myself.
If you have been on the internet at all recently you have probably seen that Romper, the leading destination for millennial moms is hosting their first ever Camp Romper festival. More exciting? They are coming straight for us NY mamas! When the email about Camp Romper slid into my inbox I was MORE THAN excited because I am always looking for things for us to do especially now in the fall before it gets TOO cold. Camp Romper is rolling around right at the perfect time, between back to school and the beginning of Fall to give moms and their kids an opportunity for a day full of fun-filled memories.
My kids absolutely love LEGOLAND. We visited LEGOLAND Florida last year for the first time as part of Zayn’s birthday trip. Initially when we got home, that was all RJ talked about. Everyone was all “RJ YOU WENT TO DISNEY WORLD?” and he was completely “YEA BUT I WENT TO LEGOLAND!!!!!”. So imagine how completely excited I was when I saw that New York is getting their very own LEGOLAND New York Resort. I haven’t told RJ yet because I don’t want him to KEEP ASKING me when it’s going to open but I already know what we’re doing for spring break 2020 (hopefully).
In case you’re like me and you need to know ALL THE THINGS, I took the time to gather all the information available so that you can plan your trip to the park ASAP. I’m about to tell you EVERYTHING you need to know about LEGOLAND New York Resort before it opens in spring 2020.
Children’s museums are one of our favorite indoor places to go. My kids, like all children are curious but I don’t think they’re ready for bigger museums just yet. We go to smaller, more interactive museums because they get a chance to see, touch and explore things more rather than a traditional museum where most exhibits are hands off. Living in Brooklyn, or favorite museum is close by. I took Zayn to the Brooklyn’s Children Museum a few weeks ago for the first time. We haven’t been able to go as frequently as I’d like to because of work and other scheduling so this was his first time at the museum and we only went to the toddler section. However he had a BLAST. I’m not sure if he even noticed that there was WAY MORE museum that he missed.
With Spring Break just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to plan a getaway with your family. While many families travel to warmer spots like Florida or come to see NYC for the first time, there are plenty of New York gems to check out that aren’t in the heart of the hustle and bustle or a warm sandy beach.
