We’ve lived near this television/movie studio for years and always wanted a glimpse inside! One weekend the studios opened up their movie magic secrets to the streets and had a family day outdoors… where we got to man a camera, watch stunts, and play on a street full of movie snow and rain. We ran into our friends the Foleys who were also learning tricks to the trade.

I found these older photos in my camera… from the beginning of September back when Governor’s Island was open and the art fair was going on. The kids loved the interactive talking robotic goat, and African music and dance. There was a jump rope jumping contest (that E&Z’s dad did surprisingly well at!) We will miss it now that the cooler weather is moving in.

This fun little amusement park lives in Wollman ice skating rink in Central Park – but only while the weather is warm. We try to get there once a summer at least. Sadly it’s closed now but the ice skating rink will return soon I’m sure.. too soon!

While exploring Avengers Land in Times Square the kids ran into a dad from the lake on the televised screens around the exhibit (I guess he has a part in the movie)! Ezra has recently been interested in Transformers so this show went over big for him – AND there were interactive games to play, so it was a bit like our Sony Wonder Lab trip only with more working stations to explore.

I have some catching up to do on blogging about what’s in my camera .. will have more summer fun to show next week!

Good thing they are opening up the hydrants in our streets… cooling off NYC style:

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..

The kids had a great time at Bounce U’s new Trampoline Sports Center. It was hard to catch Zoe in a photo where she is NOT blurred, as she was constantly zooming around and enjoying the padded space! Who knew she liked to run so much?
