Friday field trip #3: NY Science Center + queens playground

So glad we finally made it out to the NY Science Center in Queens this summer. It's been on my list for awhile and I really felt like the boys are at a great age for this museum right now. One of the funnest parts of the day was watching the kids be super excited about riding the 7 train. We've really covered lots of ground on the subway map this summer, but the 7 train seemed to be the real winner. They loved watching it go above ground and seeing the skyline of the city in the distance.

The museum didn't disappoint either. Despite having to share it with about 10 day camps (ugh! day camps can seriously spoil some summer adventures!), the kids seemed to make the best of it and enjoyed themselves anyway. So many fun hands-on exhibits and a really great "under age 5" room. We were super excited about the rooftop "science playground" until we found out it cost more and was only open at certain times. So, we decided to head back and hit the "free" playground we passed on the way there! So much fun.
