Even though we are not moving too far, I will still miss all this activity right outside our apartment door. Nothing like a lazy Sunday morning with a Bolivian Parade marching by in amazing costumes and performing dances right at your door!

While going through things and packing, I came across this dress that I remember wearing when I was about Zoe’s age. Remember my godmother and her husband, and their amazing pillows from Hungary? I think they brought this back after a trip to Hungary in the 70s. And now it’s getting some more use!

(pardon our crazy pack pile in the background!)

The box car

While packing I’ve hesitated to pack away all the kids toys. I worry that a rainy day will come and they will have not-as-much-to-do with all their things put away for the move. Imagine my surprise when they spent nearly 2-3 solid days doing nothing but creating this ‘camper’ or box car … with one moving box and my husband’s equipment cart! I think this toy is coming with us.

It even has ‘disco lighting’ inside!

I feel like last October we ran amok with wayyyyy too many pumpkin outings. This fall we are wrangling with a beast of a house renovation and tons of packing so this may be one of the very few pumpkin posts for this year. Let’s see how it all goes with getting out of Home Depot and into the fall foliage this month. Meanwhile here are some shots of our trip back to Hank’s, where we at least got a taste of the season (and some pumpkin and apple-cider donuts – yum!)

I’ve been dying to get to this beautiful new museum – constructed on farm land and made (in my opinion) to look like a grand, elegant barn full of contemporary art. It was fun sending the kids on an art scavenger hunt on a rainy afternoon —

Kaufman Astoria Studios

We’ve lived near this television/movie studio for years and always wanted a glimpse inside! One weekend the studios opened up their movie magic secrets to the streets and had a family day outdoors… where we got to man a camera, watch stunts, and play on a street full of movie snow and rain. We ran into our friends the Foleys who were also learning tricks to the trade.

Ezra-isms

This little wise man is so full of interesting thoughts and words this week. I just had to share them – or write them down somewhere so that we remember them:

Re: his daydreaming -
“Mom when I’m daydreaming I imagine that I live in a tree house with Lea, and she’s my wife, and I make go karts for work.”

Re: holding his attention at school and trying to learn instead of daydream -
“I would learn more if there was some joy. If I’m not daydreaming I want to be talking about or seeing something joyful, ya know?”

(and while I was showering he used a little marker to make a ‘stache)
