Our first Friday field trip of the summer landed on a rainy day, which meant a trip to a museum! For some reason the Children's Museum of Manhattan is the WORST Children's Museum in the city. Sorry, people, I'm a hater. It's small, always overcrowded, OVERpriced, and just plain doesn't have that much to do! So, we field tripped it down to Bed-Stuy (yes, envision 3 Mormon mommies with their strollers and slew of kids schlepping through one of the worst neighborhoods in Brooklyn looking for the museum). It was quite the adventure, but oh-so worth it when we finally got there (even when we decided to ride the local train just so all the kids could have a seat...)
