Zoe’s dad got a new camera lens for his birthday, and coaxing her out of her shell for a photo shoot was a little harder than it has been in the past. Eventually he won her over.

This creative mamma has found something to do while baby sleeps (or doesn’t sleep?) We made a birth announcement similar to this when Ezra was born but didn’t continue it in a series, and didn’t get this clever.

We saw a fun show this past weekend at an abandoned Bank of Manhattan building in LIC Queens. It happened to be a very kid friendly show about money – which Ezra is newly interested in. He is learning to count money in school and just opened his own bank account so he was excited to see the vault at this new gallery show, and Zoe loved drawing dollar bills for funhundred.org!

At times we complain about how noisy our neighborhood is, and about the things that don’t work in the community. But then there is a moment like this … where neighbors, friends and strangers all convene in the same little park and put together ways to make money for the victims of Sandy – and it just confirms that we are raising our kids in the right place.
Aside from being the hot spot to donate blankets, clothes, flashlights, batteries and water – Playstreet – (a street devoid of traffic, now becoming a permanent community plaza) became a site for a bake sale where everyone brought their home baked goods to sell for the cause. There were sweet and savory things: delicious Indian food, sloppy Joes, bags of home popped popcorn – even Justin Bieber cupcakes! And look who joined in to sell pumpkin cookies?

I hear that over $4000 in all was collected over the weekend. Way to go Jackson Heights!

Whenever we are a little bored it is easy enough for us to visit a skinny little island that lies between Manhattan and Queens. Best of all, it has a little tram that is the most exciting mode of transportation for the under 6 year old set. We took a ride on it and viewed some busy streets of Manhattan. Then we rode back to Roosevelt island and stopped for ice cream – enjoying the plentiful fields of grass there.
