In Lieu of A Vacation...

Since I'll be Adjunct Professor-ing this Summer, Aiden and I won't be able to take a vacation vacation. But we will most likely take a little trip to Virginia or Myrtle Beach. (Check my Facebook status to weigh in on where we should go.) And we will take full advantage of all the local and amazing things that NYC has to offer.

First up: The New York Aquarium. Right here in Brooklyn. This weekend. June 7th and June 8th. In celebration of World's Ocean Day.

I'm particularly excited about this event because, believe it or not, Aiden has yet to visit the aquarium --even though it's right here in our borough -- which makes for an exciting first for him. He'll not only learn about marine species, but he'll also learn ways he can protect marine life. I'm sure it'll be fun for him to chat with professional divers about coral reefs. 

But there's more.

Molly and Gill from Nickelodeon's Bubble Guppies will be there to celebrate and teach. I mean, by the end of our visit, Aiden will learn how the world's ocean generates most of the oxygen we breathe, feeds us, regulates our climate, and cleans the water we drink. All while having fun with a TV fave!

There will also be prizes to be raffled off throughout the day, giveaways after children enjoy their meet and greet, and crafts (which will be made out of recycled goods).

This will be a really fun way to kick off our Summer adventures and I can't wait. If you're in the NYC city area, this is an event that'll be too good to miss. Visit the New York Aquarium website for more information.

See you there!

  1. That totally sounds like something my kids would enjoy. They love aquariums and Bubble Guppies would be pretty sweet icing on the cake!

  2. You guys will definitely have fun at Myrtle Beach if you decide to go there. There's tons of family friendly things to do and great eating spots.

  3. I don't blame you -- life can get pretty busy for working moms but I'm sure you guys will enjoy the sights in New York as well. There is always tons of stuff to do out there. Speaking of which, my son hasn't gone to an aquarium either so we definitely need to put that on our to-do list.


I love reading what you have to say!
