I am posting tonight and tomorrow morning in-between a flurry of graduations this week. Ezra has a graduation ceremony and show on Friday, and Zoe’s was earlier this week. When did this girl get so big? With her own birthday and graduation parties to go to .. I barely recognize this social little bunny –

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:

We were back here again – Z and E’s dad was the staff photographer for the event but regardless, this street fair had my kids involved from 10 a.m. all the way up to the close at 6 pm. The themes were space, robots and weather.. and we loved learning about all three!

this boy robot from Italy was amazing. Even his mouth and eyebrows moved to show frustration or happiness.

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!

We went to check out Manhattan’s oldest house and George Washington’s headquarters during the Revolutionary War. Who knew it was right uptown? En route we passed what seems to be the corner diner that Seinfeld and friends hang out at .. and then entered a neighborhood that took us back in time to 1765. The kids got to take a little ‘test’ of sorts – that was more like a scavenger hunt through the house for historic items. And the nice lady at the gift shop told us of some free jazz across the street on Sundays that we hope to see some weekend soon.

Wouldn’t you love a fireplace and blue wallpaper like this? I would..

Zoe is older now and can really enjoy this museum more than the last time we were there. It was so great to watch her create! I think we have a little artist in the family. And Ezra loves the Clay Bar where we made little figures of plasticine, then were able to make stop-motion animation with it. This has become one of his favorite museum activities (he’s stolen my digital camera to do it at home as well.)
There were Irish singers and story tellers for St Patrick’s Day art fun, and of course lots of new friends for Zoe to meet at the easels. And Flubber! How could we forget the Flubber station?

.. we were on a mission to find some hot chocolate, and stumbled upon the Ritz Crystal Room at Remember When Antiques. The kids were just happy to peel off snow suits and settle in to a hot cup of cho – but the adults enjoyed checking out all the clothes and items from the 40s and 50s. It looked like an old theater house to me… and there were still a lot of holiday decorations abound; like sugar plums from the 40s that I seem to remember seeing at my grandmother’s house way back when.
How do they keep the dust away from these little tchotchkes? I do love the dresses…

The weather was unseasonably warm during the beginning of this week … all the way up to near 70 degrees! As I drove back from Boston I saw people in Central Park wearing only tee shirts and shorts – in late December. We decided it would be a perfect balmy night to see the crazy over-the-top holiday lights in the Dyker Heights section of Brooklyn. The light show didn’t disappoint and for the first time we could get out of the car and walk around, without freezing.

Hope you are enjoying your week everyone!

While we don’t celebrate Christmas at home, we know and love a lot of people who do. When we were in Boston we went back to cousin Paul and Sophia’s house and enjoyed all their holiday decorations. And the relatives even left a couple gifts under the tree for the kids! We got whopped with 8-12 inches of snow which the dogs (Max and Mia) loved looking at – from the windows. I think the snow got too high for little dogs to even stand in!
