Are you ready for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Training! #TMNTLSC

My family ventured over the George Washington Bridge, about a 45 minute drive for some Kow-A-Bonga action at the first-ever Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle exhibit at the Liberty Science Center.  We were greeted with Ninja themed activities, to train Ninja wanna be’s of all ages.  Once we completed the rigorous obstacle course we received a Ninja certification, a pizza party, (DUH) and, a meet & greet with the Turtles themselves.  Definitely racking up those cool mom points.
