Finally, some spring

Just back from spending the first night of Passover with cousins in the DC area – where everything is blooming a little faster. Cousins romped in the driveway, and we checked out the cherry trees blossoming in Chevy Chase. Some clever little boys even set up a lemonade stand and reaped the benefits of a lot of foot traffic. Ezra is already excited to do this again in the next few months.

Street sightings

With warm weather comes more people traffic here in NYC. And more people traffic means more “people watching”. As a lifelong voyeur maybe this is why I’ve always loved New York. Cup of Jo blogged about a lovely way to take your mind off your own troubles yesterday; a way that combines prayer and people watching. And I was lead to this page of beautiful images of moments caught in the streets. It’s making me excited for this new season where we all bump into each other again, after being cooped up for so long. After a very long winter it seems New Yorkers come out from indoors smiling and unreasonably happy to strangers (not the city-dweller stereotype); making it even more fun to be here.

We are taking off for a little down-time and for a lovely Passover Seder with family on Monday night. We are looking forward to seeing family and new scenery in general. I hear we should be seeing a lot of cherry blossoms and warmer temps where we are going – which I’m excited about (even if I am now already a bit homesick!)

Have a great weekend.

Frozen party

Have you seen the Disney movie Frozen yet? If there is a computer or child under the age 13 nearby you most likely have heard ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’ or ‘Let it Go’ so often that you have the lyrics in your head on a regular basis. Or you witnessed John Travolta butchering the name of the Oscar winning soloist before she performed ‘Let It Go’ on stage. Somewhere, somehow it must’ve leaked into your life … but there’s nothing cuter than seeing birthday girl Mia get the Elsa dress of her dreams, and her friends crafting and singing to all things Frozen-themed. I have to admit – the sight of snowflakes and wintery things don’t even bother me now that spring really truly is upon us – and the day was actually too nice for us to stay indoors for very long. Happy Birthday Mia!

Ukulele

My husband and Ezra are taking ukulele lessons on Saturday now. According to my husband this is the perfect little instrument for tiny hands, and Ezra loves it. He rocks out like a Hawaiin rock star.

Signs of spring

Look what I found! Growing in front of a building in our neighborhood.. a flower! A real flower! Things bursting up out of the ground everywhere finally. Spring might really be here!
Enjoy your weekend

Ezra’s teacher told us – the night before Ezra’s play – that he would need a wolf costume to perform in. All I have to say is thank GOODNESS we know someone who use to design costumes for Lion King! Thanks mamma Loren and Brad for lending us a wolf costume. We couldn’t have pulled this one off without you! See the morning of the play, and then Ezra on stage in the photos below –

Bit by the ski bug!

Who knew? On the very last day that the slopes were open, Ezra tried his hand at skiing and LOVED IT! He now compares his love for skiing to his love for ipad time… uh oh. We may be on the slopes more often next winter.
