Family Outing to the Intrepid

Lately, I have been glued to my computer (working on a book proposal–fingers crossed).  Every so often, I manage to escape the glaring screen. This past weekend (with its gorgeous weather) was the perfect excuse to close the laptop. I went with my family to the Intrepid Museum and it did not disappoint. Airplanes, a space shuttle and interactivity made it a great day!

Sh*tty Mom Book Party

Earlier this evening, I attended a party for the authors of Sh*tty Mom a New York Times Bestselling humor book.  Their latest book Sh*tty Mom  For All Seasons was released this week.

Hosted by the MOMS and Randi Zuckerberg,  the event at Haus NYC was packed. The ladies were so gracious, taking time to chat and sign books. I can’t wait to read mine!

Art and Exhibitions

It has been a busy couple of weeks for me, previewing museum exhibitions.  I wanted to share a few images and give you a sneak peek  of the shows opening this weekend.

#dinosamongus
The American Museum of Natural History‘s latest exhibit spotlights the connection between dinosaurs and everyday birds.  The polished exhibition offers information and interactivity. You’ll learn that–yes,  the common pidgeon is a descendant of dinosaurs.

#MetBruer
This newly restored space now houses the contemporary collection for the Metropolitan Musuem.  Opening to the public this weekend, the music  performances and family programs caught my attention.  Look out for future articles on the new space.

#mohistory
The New York Historical Society‘s latest  exhibit highlights the extensive work of Mo Willems.  The whimsy of his illustration, humor in his writing and serious nature of his process are conveyed. A favorite author of my son, we will certainly return for special programs.

Frida’s Garden

Today was the last day to visit the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) exhibit of Frida Kahlo‘s garden. I viewed the exhibit a few weeks ago with a docent led group. NYBG acquired a small amount of drawings and photographs to add to pair with the content in the collection of live plants.

Small touches like a cantina and taco truck, made the visitor experience even more enjoyable–particularly for the evening events. I’m a little sad to see it go, but looking forward to the upcoming winter exhibits.
