Before school started – we enjoyed a leisurely pot luck and BBQ at the lake last weekend. It all ended with the kids sending paper lanterns up into the night sky – something that we tried to do at the beginning of the summer but it was just too windy. On this perfect night they finally took flight:

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..
