The Best Pumpkin Patches In And Around NYC

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.

EVERYTHING You Need to Know About LEGOLAND New York Resort

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. Continue Reading →

8 Fun Ways to Spend A Rainy Day with Kids in NYC

Spring is finally almost here and I am ready for the warmer weather. Spring isn’t exactly my favorite season, but it’s a tie between second and third because its always freaking raining. As a mama of two under 5 (whew!) I am constantly looking for rainy day activities to keep those two little boys entertained. I’ve come up with a couple of different ways we like to spend our rainy days in the city.

Museums

I still think the boys are kind of young for “big” museums, and at 4 and 1 they have absolutely no indoor voices. We tend to stick to children museums (Brooklyn is our favorite) or pop ups that are kid friendly. The boys loved the Museum of Pizza and i had an amazing time at Mickey the True Original. Places that are kid friendly and interactive are always at the top of our lists.
