Our friends in Astoria did up their house, with a movie projected on a nearby building and everything! I guess we have to step up our game next year, now that we have a home to decorate:

Well it was a can of crazy here late last week, but somehow miraculously (with the help of grandparents) we managed to get kids in costumes and out to parties. Four parties in our ‘alley’ alone! By the way, the ‘alley’ is our back drive, filled with children and great neighbors, and described by others in the hood as the equivalent of moving ‘into Sesame Street’. You will hear a lot about it on the blog I’m sure. What a great, warm receptive group of neighbors we have. Ezra was a Dinobot and Zoe was one of the thousands of Elsas on the street… but I still think she was the prettiest. Who needs candy when all this other fun is going on?

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 found these older photos in my camera… from the beginning of September back when Governor’s Island was open and the art fair was going on. The kids loved the interactive talking robotic goat, and African music and dance. There was a jump rope jumping contest (that E&Z’s dad did surprisingly well at!) We will miss it now that the cooler weather is moving in.

After all this fun, I hope they recorded it well enough to remember it all. If not, they can always come to this blog for a reminder!

I use to love to photograph this parade back before I was married or had kids. I had nearly forgotten about it – and then somehow Zoe got wind of it and (being recently obsessed with mermaids) just had to partake in the mermaid fun. It was hot and super crowded, but since the kids are so tiny – they could get to the front of the crowd and see the costumes. Ezra – being the good natured brother that he is – even got dressed up as King Neptune for Zoe’s enjoyment. In the end I think Mayor DeBlasio even approached Ezra and gave him a gold coin while dressed like a pirate. The crowds were so thick that people started climbing the scaffolding on the sidewalks – but in the end it was worth it. (By the way – Zoe painted her shells herself!)

I guess we know a lot of cute folks whose birthdays are happening this month … just some more gratuitous pix of birthday fun. I love this ‘photo booth wall’ and may have to copy this idea for E’s bday in August:
