It’s that time of year when the excitement of winter brings us to great places like Liberty Science Center ; just in time for their winter fun exhibits. We were recently hosted by LSC and our friends at MomTrends to view the new exhibit openings, and had so much fun. The adventure of science is everlasting and tangible right in Jersey City, NJ.
Just when you think you know it all and have all of the clues you learn something new. We’re sharing all about the 2 brand new exhibits as well as a tip and number one ingredient needed to make delicious ice cream.
This photo was captured just as nitrogen was being poured over the already mixed ingredients of milk, cream, sugar and vanilla….. TIP: wear warm gloves because it gets cold BRrrr, as seen here the kiddos were a distance away from the table and the master scientist wore gloves.
Did you know that the #1 ingredient needed for making delicious ice cream is AIR?
After enjoying their ice cream treat we followed the footsteps to find some clues and solve mysteries just like Sherlock Holmes himself. This exhibit is so interactive and fun. When entering the designated area you are greeted with a book of clues to find throughout the exhibit. There are clues and amazing historical find everywhere. We all enjoyed solving the mystery just as it was done in 1800’s. We took a crack at deciphering Morse code and trivial observations just as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle did within his famous books.
After solving mysteries we were in the mood to help Doc McStuffins in her huge (toy) hospital in making the toys feel better .
As we all know it takes lots of team work to make everyone feel better and get the job done…. so that’s just what we did.
Just like Disney’s Doc McStuffins backyard toy hospital you’re able to put on a lab coat and begin working on checkups , ER while learning about health and wellness in a fun environment.
Just when school was beginning and we were mentally preparing to settle down a bit for fall we decided to go on one more adventure!
We visited the beautiful Caribbean island of Honduras , then traveled along the Norwegian Getaway ‘s private island in Belize, Costa Maya Mexico and Cozumel for a week full of learning and adventure.
One of the best parts may have been he beautiful weather, beach days and resort wear.
Honduras is such a cultured country of food, wonderful people and growth. The old dirt road were being paved as we drive from one port to another. We visited the beautiful Garifuna village, ate fresh from the trees and ocean, and listened to nostalgic Spanish music. All while our little city kiddies blended without any transition necessary.

La isla /ciudad Cozumel
There’s such a perfect blend of city and island life to Cozumel.
While visiting, they were beginning the festivities of their new year celebration. Shops were lining up for vending , carnival rides were being set up and the aroma of delicious authentic food filled the streets.
You can never forget about the ocean experience. Cruising has been one of our favorite things to do after having the Twins and we can now say that Bash has adjusted to this lifestyle very well. He is our little runner, with lots of energy, but while on the ship we never worried about finding ways to keep him busy. He visited the splash academy for the little guppies, while the girls Played with friends. He also took numerous trips to ice cream stations and enjoyed the water slides.
Just a week ago all of my childhood dreams came true through my daughters.
V & K were so lucky to be invited to the American girl place new flagship store thanks to a friend.
The rope cutting ceremony to open the stores to press and media happened during the day. Where an amazing tour of the new store allowed to take in all of new architecture of the high ceilings, beautiful lighting, open floor plan and numerous amounts of displays of some of our favorite Dolls.

The night was filled with excited spa – hair and nail pampering and charity rewarding, through silent auction in partnership with The NY public Library. It was a truly inspirational night, especially when the girls got to meet Valerie Tripp; the amazing author of this life long brand and stories.
