Last summer we took Atticus to Water Lab (a glorified splash pad) at Pier 6 in Brooklyn and it was the funnest! I kept meaning to take the kids and the other morning I said okay we are leaving in 30 minutes and going to Water Lab – its happening. So we left the apartment and squoze onto the subway during rush hour and had a 45 minute subway ride to Clark St. and walked to Pier 6. When we finally got there it was CLOSED!!!!! It was closed for cleaning and didn’t open til noon that day, but when we got there it was like 8am! So we decided to do playgrounds, soccer fields, running on the pier, ice cream, and yummy food all on the pier and it was soooo fun. The kids had a blast and just as we were leaving we saw the splash pad open but by then, they were so ready for a nap. We are pretty strict with our napping schedule and like to be home for their naps so they get the full 3 hours otherwise – it ain’t pretty! I think Pier 6, Top of the Rock, and Sheep’s Meadow might be my favorite spots in the city. Just so pretty!! Love this city.
Have a good day everyone!!!
