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!

After a pretty near perfect day at the beach (Jacob Riis beach to be exact) – where Ezra coaxed me into the HUGE warm waves to be smashed around with him on the shore (a new game that he loves) – we went to this totally yummy spot for some fish tacos. There was a bit of a long line but it was definitely worth the wait for fresh ingredients, and a fresh coconut as our beverage. Rumor has it the owner surfs in South East Asia on the off season, and then opens this little taco hut for the summer only. Check out their fun promo movie here; http://rockawaytaco.com/.

Who knew this great new flea market/street fair was happening on weekends in our old Queens neighborhood (near Kaufman Astoria Studios) ? GREAT food and even a bicycle powered slush making machine – the kids were psyched. Zoe loves pink lady sushi – with mango and shrimp. YUM! So much to see, buy and eat…

With teachers from Colombia and India, Zoe was really struggling to pin down ONE ethnicity that may represent herself or our family. We are kind of a hodge-podge of ethnicities – but since Purim happened so recently, Zoe really wanted to make hamentashen and carry an Israeli flag around during her ‘Rainbow Song’ for International Day. She belted out her song and ate everything that the other kids brought in – bean cakes from China, Irish soda bread and empanadas to name just a few!

On Christmas day we stayed indoors for the most part because that warm spell was broken by the coldest snap ever! Our friends invited us to their house for a little dinner, and because Lea and Mia’s mom is from Germany we felt a little bit of German Christmas in the air. The exception of course was the ‘Simon’ game under the tree – that was a piece of my own past!
