I feel like last October we ran amok with wayyyyy too many pumpkin outings. This fall we are wrangling with a beast of a house renovation and tons of packing so this may be one of the very few pumpkin posts for this year. Let’s see how it all goes with getting out of Home Depot and into the fall foliage this month. Meanwhile here are some shots of our trip back to Hank’s, where we at least got a taste of the season (and some pumpkin and apple-cider donuts – yum!)

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:

These two – when they get along and can tolerate a quick ride on the subway – we can get to the swings at Central Park within 20 minutes. If no one wants to deal with the subway, Rainbow Berry Yogurt in our ‘hood seems to be their favorite stop. I think it’s the whacky furniture and the mural that makes it feel like an extra treat. I will miss these guys and our lazy days of summer. Almost time for school..

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…
