Family-friendly attractions in New York

With pre-eminent landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and Times Square, New York has got to be one of the world’s most enthralling and exciting destinations to visit. However, if you’re heading on a trip to the Big Apple with kids in tow, making the most of these monuments becomes a bit more difficult. Therefore, you might be interested in hearing about some more family-friendly attractions and activities, which both young and old can thoroughly enjoy.

Central Park

While this will be on the itinerary of most visitors to New York, Central Park is the perfect place for the family to escape the busy and bustling city. You might not see every inch of its 843 acres, but kids are bound to locate one of the park’s numerous playgrounds. But if this wasn’t entertainment enough, there is the Central Park Zoo, Belvedere Castle and Wollman Skating Rink to take advantage of too. What’s more, the public swimming pool at the north end of the park is ideal for cooling off in the summer.

Dumb and Dumber To comes to Blu-ray, DVD on 2/17/15!!!

It's hard to believe that over 20 years ago I went to the movies as a 16 year old to see Dumb and Dumber.... It's hard to believe that two decades has passed since one of my all time favorite movies had been released, fast forward 20 years and we finally get a sequel and it was worth the wait. Coming on 2/17/15to  Blu Ray is Dumb and Dumber To. That's not a typo... It looks funny and incorrect and appropriate for this movie but it actually means two in Norwegian, so it's technically not wrong.
In the two decades that passed I was hoping against Harry and Lloyd gaining wisdom with age and thankfully they didn't! Dumb as ever....and I'm happy about that! We find out dumbnamic duo on a quest to meet Harry's daughter, Lloyd seeing a picture of Harry's daughter instantly falls in love with her and that leads to all sorts of mayhem and fun.

Disney Legend and 101 Dalmatians animator Floyd Norman interview & drawing demonstration #101Dalmatians

When I started this blog a few years ago I never imagined it would turn into something that brings me so many magical bucket list moments. All of the trips and experiences that I have had over the past 4+ years have been amazing and I had another bucket list moment crossed off my list recently when I learned to draw Mickey Mouse from Disney Legend Floyd Norman. It was so much more than an art lesson, it was a glimpse into the life of a man that has had a really wonderful journey.
 After graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena Floyd was hired by Walt Disney Studios where he served as an apprentice for less than a year before he was hired as a full time animator to work on sketching cartoons for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and the Disneyland TV Show.
