New York City… day 1… part 2… wait, there was a battle in Brooklyn???

a 1

Yes, there was. In the Revolutionary War. You should Google that.

a 2

I was still wiping butter off my lips from the croissant I got at the farmer’s market, and we walked up the hill and into the park. That would be Fort Greene Park, in Brooklyn, New York.

Don’t feel bad, my daughter didn’t know about that part of our history either.

a 4

But she does now.

We went into the little museum, past the musket…

a 6

And read some placards and saw some Revolutionary War weapons.

Then we walked towards the monument, which, I believe, is dedicated to all the American soldiers who died of disease on British prison ships in New York Harbor.

And that is when I spotted the little guy in the monkey suit being followed by a film crew.

There were signs up around the park saying that Disney was shooting a movie about child development.

Tai Chi in the park.

The kid starting interacting with other kids. The camera guys looked a little panicked.

a 12

People were lining up for a dog Halloween costume contest later that day. I wish we could have gone back to see the dogs in their costumes, but I did pet most of those dogs. Ha!

a 13

Okay, good luck, camera guys.

a 14

I did manage to walk around in the background a few times, so I might be in a Disney movie. Now…  or should I say soon… back to the adventures.
