This past Friday, Karate Boy and I headed to an after-school play-date in the City. We were off to meet my dear Mummy friend Cindy and her handsome little boy Michael…. to see the fabulous Harry Potter Exhibition at Discovery Times Square. I was not to happy that they had a strict policy… NO PICTURES ALLOWED IN THE EXHIBITION! Uggg, well there goes me documenting all the fun we had inside the exhibit. Cindy was able to squeeze a cell photo of me, being quizzed by the ” sorting” hat. To Karate Boy’s dismay! It was a fantastic exhibit, especially if you are a die-hard Potter fan. We were all mediocre fans at best, yet we had such a fun time. The boys especially enjoyed tossing Quaffle balls in the Quidditch area. They were rewarded with Harry Potter wands, which they could not stop playing with, once we left the exhibit. You can witness their excitement in the photographs (sorry they look so foggy, they were taken with my old digital camera) I was able to take outside the exhibit. Great fun for the entire family.
