No School Means Fun At Liberty Science Center + Giveaway


Can you guys believe we are already in November? The kids were on Fall Recess last week and so that meant that I needed to find things for us to do. Keeping the kids busy during the colder months can sometimes be challenging as the weather can be unpredictable like it has been for the past few weeks now. So when planning out our activities for the week I decided to add Liberty Science Center to our list and I am glad I did. If your not from the NJ/NY area then you may not be familiar with Liberty Science Center.  LSC is an interactive science museum and learning center that lets kids be hands on with the exhibitions and its perfect for all ages. Currently they have the Dinosaur Train Traveling exhibit and the Angry Birds Universe exhibition along with their main attractions.

DIY Scrooge McDuck Halloween Costume


I usually start asking the boys what they want to be for Halloween towards the end of August.  I do it early so that I can get them early and not wait for the last minute. Well this year my oldest was set on being Scrooge McDuck from the cartoon series Duck Tales. I honestly thought he was joking but he was dead serious. I searched high and low and could not find anything in stores for this theme. I even tried to convince him to pick something else but he was not having it. So I went to Pinterest for inspiration and found the perfect costume that I can replicate. It was super easy to make and I think anyone can make it.

Family Fall Activities


Happy Fall you guys! I know that we are already into the second week of October but if I am being honest we have been sick on and off over here. I have been working on this post since last month and although I 'm a little late to getting it up I still wanted to share. I see that everyone has been enjoying all the fall activities and we have yet to do any of the things that are on our list. Here are a few things that we are hoping to do this fall season in the NJ/NY area.
