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?

I’ve been depressed that August is drawing to a close. I can’t believe how quickly this summer is passing – and kids are going to be in school again soon. Although honestly it’s almost better to have them in school while we work on our new house. I’m afraid they’ve seen wayyyyyy too much of Home Depot this summer.
In these last weeks we’ve been trying to see more of friends (who are now out of day camp). A little game of Twister, a trip to South Street Seaport. We went to the Imagination Playground downtown, where kids are encouraged to use giant blue foamy blocks to create something together. I wish school could be like this for the kids .. instead of books and sitting still, some time to work in teams and create something. At least we can get them to this once in awhile – while the weather is still nice.
