What's the experienced super mom doing with her younger man this summer?

Rami's school qualifies to participate in the Cool Culture Family Pass Program here in NYC. In short, that means he and I will be visiting several museums (and a zoo!) in New York FOR FREE before he leaves for "Bubbe and Zayde Camp" in Utah with "his girls."

We have also found a few appropriate $1 movies that we may check out through the Regal Movie Summer Express. (I haven't checked the reviews for any of these; I just remotely recognize their titles.) They all begin at 10 AM and we will be viewing them at the Regal New Roc Stadium 18 & IMAX.

Finally, I have registered Rami for swimming lessons at Van Cortlandt Park pool. We'll see what comes of that registration. Here's the link I followed; take a look and see if there's a pool near you!

Without further ado and without a great deal of fanfare, here are our tentative plans for the first part of the summer:

    Friday,         June 28 New York Hall of Science
    Monday,      July 1    Riverdale Playgrounds and UES (baby visit)
    Tuesday,      July 2    Children's Museum of Manhattan
    Wednesday, July 3    Brooklyn Children's Museum
    Friday,         July 5    Wave Hill (10 AM Yoga Together)
    Monday,      July 8    The Jewish Museum
    Tuesday,      July 9    Mr. Popper's Penguins
    Wednesday, July 10  Chipwrecked
    Thursday,     July 11  New York Transit Museum
    Friday,         July 12  Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum (after 7/10)
    Monday,      July 15  Central Park Zoo
    Wednesday, July 17  Rio
    Thursday,     July 18  Sony Wonder Technology Lab
    Friday,         July 19  Hippo Playground (art at 10 AM)

We knocked out the New York Botanical Gardens...though I may chicken out of the visit to Brooklyn in favor of that. Or I may bump the NY Transit Museum off in favor of the Intrepid and "do" the Botanical Gardens then. May depend on the weather and what's available to us at each location on each day. Stay tuned!


  1. I'm tired just looking at this list. :) Our plan is to go to the town beach everyday until this baby is ready to come out. Rami is a lucky kid!

    1. It's a start. A framework. We have Baby A with us who will be with us for at least another week (if not two) and will have at least one baby visit. We've already made a change or two. But it's something to look forward to!

  2. Take lots of pictures when you go to the Intrepid. My dad served on it when he was in the Navy back in the late '50s - early '60s.

    1. Ooo...the Navy...the Naval Academy...Annapolis...:)
