Our Visit To NY Renaissance Faire

Tuxedo, NY

August 2017

We have been meaning to go the NY Renaissance Faire for years now.  Ever since my parents moved nearby.  We even attempted it once, but got scared away by the crowd of people gathering, and the severe lack of parking.  Do not get scared away! It is worth it!  Since that first visit, it became an annual tradition to head there.

Our Visit To Morris Museum

Morristown, NJ

March 2016

I just realized that I have never written a word about this place, the Morris Museum in Morristown NJ.  We have gone there every year for the past three years.  It is a very kid friendly museum, with classes and exhibits that cater to kids, yet it has plenty appeal for adults.  There is plenty to see: we have come when they had the Lego exhibition, there are amazing trains, fossil collection and much more.  You can spend a good hour walking around and exploring.  Their collections and displays change often, and they have several permanent exhibitions, but the heart of this museum is the Murtogh D. Guinness collection of automata and instruments: musical machines and living dolls.  It is an amazing collection and nothing of the sort did I see before.  They run live demos every Tuesday through Sunday at 2 pm, it is free to attend with admission.

Our Visit To New Hope and Lambertville

New Hope, PA and Lambertville, NJ

We go there so often, that I just couldn’t put a date on it.

We haven’t gone away on vacation for quite some time. Between little kids, finances, dog, house, grandparents it is just a little difficult. We do, however, have a favorite local spot to which we go every few months to get away. It’s the Lambertville NJ – New Hope PA area. Many things that we would want to find while vacationing we have found there in abundance.


Our Visit To NJ State Theater

New Brunswick, NJ

March 2012

Every so once in a while we go to NJ State Theater to see a few on school time performances. We homeschool, so it is easy enough for us to purchase the tickets for school time performances anytime there is something good playing. It is most certainly worth the effort.
Last year we saw Blast!, “Sylvester and the Magic Pebble”, “MOMIX remix” and the Shanghai Acrobats.  Here is more about our visit to NJ State Theater.
