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!)
Ezra had been accepted into an after school art class on Mondays. Finally now that the school year is drawing to a close, Ezra’s art projects are being finalized and he brought some home. He made this beautiful salt holder and a small pot for a ‘watermelon plant’! And we hear he got a piece in the Museo del Barrio in NYC! I hope to have more info (and hopefully photos of an art opening?) soon!
