Here are photos of our sea adventure: Read the rest of this entry

Most of the tricks were like nothing I’ve seen before!

My six-year-old daughter loves to read and I am having so much fun introducing her to all of my childhood book heroines.

This is why I was so excited to find out that the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater in Central Park is holding performances of the show until June! Read the rest of this entry
