A couple of weeks ago Hannah and I drove out to Trenton after her Tuesday therapies to check out the New Jersey State Museum, which is FREE. I have a Groupon for the planetarium, but we got there around 2pm and all the shows were done for the day. Another trip, we will be back!

Cherry picking is still H’s favorite of all the fruit pickings. She just absolutely loves cherry trees. This year’s sour cherry season was insanely short, less than a week. Battleview Orchards opened on a Monday, we were there on Wednesday, and by Friday they were picked clean.

We had a quiet week around town this week, but last week we headed out to Coney Island with my mom. We have a WCS membership, so we went to the NY Aquarium, which is still being rebuilt after Sandy.

This is the summer of adventures. The past two years, Hannah attended her school’s toddler summer program every day. But she’s not in the toddler program anymore, and no more summer program. She’s not quite ready for camp, so it is Hannah and me together all day, every day.

I took Hannah to Field Station: Dinosaurs last summer because it was scheduled to close at the end of the season. But, surprise! It’s been reopened temporarily in Overpeck Park in Bergen County. And I’ve heard that there are plans to eventually move it to a new, permanent location.

On our last full day in the UK, we headed to Chatsworth. I’ve been before, but it was on my very first trip to England back in 2004. It was a lot different than I remembered.

The last leg of our UK trip last month was up to stay with my in-laws in Derbyshire and spend some time running around the country and running around Sheffield (which is South Yorkshire).

I have deadlines, and so many trip photos, but I really want to document what we did. This blog is my archive, so bear with me. I have two (or maybe three?) posts left to get out.

After the three of us left Southern England, we spent Mon-Fri at Center Parcs Sherwood Forest. It was a nice break in the trip. We were happy and busy with grandparents at the beginning and end of our two weeks, and this break in the middle was a chance to spend time away just the three of us before setting off for more extended family adventures.

We were in the UK for two weeks, and we divided the trip into thirds: a third in Southern England with one set of family, a third just the three of us at a Center Parcs resort, and a third in Northern England with our other set of family. And we packed in the activities as soon as we landed. Legoland, London. This is everything else we did during our first third. Fancy dinner! Fabric shopping! A model village!
