So after yesterday's not-so-much-fun-for-us-kids day, we set out to have more fun on our fourth day in New York.
First stop, the clock from Madagascar!
This was right outside the zoo in the big big park from yesterday. Inside the zoo we went to the rainforest where it was very warm and very moist.
The rainforest house
My favorite part was seeing Stellaluna, or the fruit bats. Aki's favorite part was coming out of the stroller.
Later we went to the children's zoo, which is right outside the real zoo.
Me and Aki hatching in turtle eggs. This was my other favorite thing of the day.
Oh, and this was pretty favorite too!
Me in a bunny statue. Too bad we didn't take a picture of Aki in her bunny hat in this bunny statue!
After the zoo and yummy Japanese food we went to the Museum of Modern Art. That is, mommy and daddy went while we slept.
They said they went to see the exhibit that was put together by this guy. Apparently we saw his stuff last year when we went to Montreal.
Entrance to the exhibit
The "Artist's Choice" means that Mr. Vik chose things from the museum's collections and put them together into a show. There wasn't any of his stuff, but there were still plenty of neat things.
Like this fly, for example, also known as Untitled (1995) by Tom Friedman
This security guard's job was to make sure no one touched the fly. He was hiding around the corner so that he could jump out and yell at people. He wasn't as cool as the other guard who was walking around and singing to himself.
The trick of the show was that each piece led to another. For example, the funny colorful toy below was followed by that statue of a lady with her hands out, like she was playing with it. Then the hands statue led to something else.
Reflection playing with toys
Mommy reading about the pieces
Last piece in the show (really)... Interloop Architecture: E-X-I-T (2004)
Aki got to come out after the show
We both went down to play in this cool light projection show, called Pipilotti Rist: Pour Your Body Out (7354 Cubic Meters).
Checking out the big apples on the screen. Does that mean something?
Aki was more interested in these two other visitors. At least I think they were visitors. Maybe they were part of the art?
At Uncle Nick's restaurant for dinner. We didn't actually see our Ah Gu, but maybe he was hiding.
We had lots of fun at the zoo, and some fun in the museum. It was our last full day in the city. Thanks for reading this far. I sure would've given up by now.
