I don’t know if it has to do with his recent obsession with Minecraft or not – but this boy can build a room! While we were putting together some kitchen ideas at Ikea – he quietly tinkered away on the kitchen planning program and came up with some better decorating ideas than we had. hmmmmm…
This fun little amusement park lives in Wollman ice skating rink in Central Park – but only while the weather is warm. We try to get there once a summer at least. Sadly it’s closed now but the ice skating rink will return soon I’m sure.. too soon!

While exploring Avengers Land in Times Square the kids ran into a dad from the lake on the televised screens around the exhibit (I guess he has a part in the movie)! Ezra has recently been interested in Transformers so this show went over big for him – AND there were interactive games to play, so it was a bit like our Sony Wonder Lab trip only with more working stations to explore.
I have some catching up to do on blogging about what’s in my camera .. will have more summer fun to show next week!

Mmmm beans and tomatoes and all sorts of good stuff from their yard. It’s bittersweet when fall comes and we have to start to say goodbye to summer, but hello to all this yummy stuff from their garden!
We revisited Bill Egger’s booth to see his vintage motorcycle (he builds them himself!) Giant carved pumpkins, all sorts of animals, and our friends Brad and Jane placed in the Lego building contest. We watched skillet tossing and vintage tractors pull as much weight as they could. We just can’t get enough of this fair!

Well I didn’t even get to blog about our long Labor Day weekend or some of our final lazy days of summer, and wham! Here it is, the first day of school. Ezra is transitioning into a new (humongous) school and handled it like a trooper this a.m. Zoe is returning to her school for a full day and UPK classes – and she is definitely ready for it. My husband and I just noted that this is the first time in 8 years that we have a full 6 hours of alone time during the weekdays. Have we taken the attachment parenting thing too far? I already miss them – but look at how much they’ve grown (compare to last year by clicking here) !
