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/.

There’s nothing worse than dying to see your kids all week, and then your flight to pick them up gets CANCELLED! The only thing good that came out of that evening was a quick trip to Saw Shack for dinner. This new Chinese restaurant in our ‘hood makes yummy, fresh Chinese food with vegan and vegetarian options too. We had the shrimp with mango and it was amazing .. no sauces smothering the mango. The tofu dish with broccoli was incredible as well. It’s pathetic that all I have to show here is a half eaten dish, but trust me it went down quickly and held us over for the next 6-8 hours of waiting in an airport, begging for a flight to get to our kids. The orange infused water is definitely something I want to try at home.

not fine dining here but the food is super fresh and tasty!

After visiting friends in Rye NY, we made a trip to Muscoot Farms. This sweet little farm doesn’t encourage feeding the animals but sometimes you can pat one.. and there was a great little farmer’s market going on that Sunday. We loved the fresh strawberries.

Have a great 4th of July weekend everyone!

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…

How did I forget to post these pretty pictures? Nothing is more Americana than the Memorial Day ceremonies in West Cornwall CT – with their quaint parade of old fashioned cars, firetrucks and carnival afterwards. We did the Cakewalk again around the Maypole and Brad even won a cake covered in gummy worms!

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!

Have you ever had Harney & Sons Tea? My husband has become quite the sommelier of tea these days… moving away from coffee and getting very particular about his teas. They are really yummy – and blends with blueberry and pumpkin were great to sample on a cold day. The kids like sampling the caffeine free varieties. What are YOU drinking while it’s cold outside?

Looks like Ezra could use a little tea pick-me-up!
