Lil Love Bird's Puppet Show Playdate

NYC in the summer provides a whirlwind of activities to take advantage of and yesterday we were excited to head to Morningside Park for a Summerstage presentation of Bessie's Big Shot. This was a traditional marionette puppet show and Nia loved it! We met up with her birth-date twin Jerve (remember their little dance last Halloween?) who she hadn't seen since last year and the two started playing as though no time had passed!

She wanted to join the big kids up front but needed to make sure I was close by!

After the puppet show Nia and Jerve ran around and around and around! (And yes, this resulted in a looooong nap afterwards!)

And we couldn't leave without sitting on the grizzly bear (mean muggin'!):

I highly recommend checking out the Summerstage calendar of events remaining this summer - there's something there for all ages and FREE is always nice!

What free summer events are you taking advantage of in your city?
