Now, I NEVER brag but I have to spew about this one. Our destination Sunday was to the NY Aquarium. So we left early & got there by 10:30am. Turns out most of the Aquarium has not been rebuilt since being hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. About 75% is still under renovation & won't be completed until 2016. They saved most of the animals/fish & only the fresh water fishes didn't make it :( They had over 14 feet water surged into the aquarium. The sea lions enjoyed the extra water we were told. There are still Halloween decorations from last year hung on the windows of the closed areas.
Anyway, since there wasn't much to see, we took a walk with the kids onto the Coney Island Boardwalk. We had lunch at Nathans & ate by water. Then we went to the Amusement parks right on the boardwalk & the kids went on all the kiddie rides. They had so much fun! This is the first time my LO ever went on rides & her big Brother held her tight until she was comfortable & then it was nothing but big toothy smiles. I had the best time just seeing them having a blast. The sun was bright the ocean wind was cool. It doesn't get better then that! The day turned out better then we ever planned.
So if you're ever in the area, don't hesitate to take the kids!
Thanks for listening, I just had to share.
So question then, what was the highlight of your summer?
