With warm weather comes more people traffic here in NYC. And more people traffic means more “people watching”. As a lifelong voyeur maybe this is why I’ve always loved New York. Cup of Jo blogged about a lovely way to take your mind off your own troubles yesterday; a way that combines prayer and people watching. And I was lead to this page of beautiful images of moments caught in the streets. It’s making me excited for this new season where we all bump into each other again, after being cooped up for so long. After a very long winter it seems New Yorkers come out from indoors smiling and unreasonably happy to strangers (not the city-dweller stereotype); making it even more fun to be here.

We are taking off for a little down-time and for a lovely Passover Seder with family on Monday night. We are looking forward to seeing family and new scenery in general. I hear we should be seeing a lot of cherry blossoms and warmer temps where we are going – which I’m excited about (even if I am now already a bit homesick!) Click on our Instagram button if you want to see our photos over the weekend and ..

Have a great weekend.

Have you seen the Disney movie Frozen yet? If there is a computer or child under the age 13 nearby you most likely have heard ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’ or ‘Let it Go’ so often that you have the lyrics in your head on a regular basis. Or you witnessed John Travolta butchering the name of the Oscar winning soloist before she performed ‘Let It Go’ on stage. Somewhere, somehow it must’ve leaked into your life … but there’s nothing cuter than seeing birthday girl Mia get the Elsa dress of her dreams, and her friends crafting and singing to all things Frozen-themed. I have to admit – the sight of snowflakes and wintery things don’t even bother me now that spring really truly is upon us – and the day was actually too nice for us to stay indoors for very long. Happy Birthday Mia!

My husband and Ezra are taking ukulele lessons on Saturday now. According to my husband this is the perfect little instrument for tiny hands, and Ezra loves it. He rocks out like a Hawaiin rock star.

Ezra’s teacher told us – the night before Ezra’s play – that he would need a wolf costume to perform in. All I have to say is thank GOODNESS we know someone who use to design costumes for Lion King! Thanks mamma Loren and Brad for lending us a wolf costume. We couldn’t have pulled this one off without you! See the morning of the play, and then Ezra on stage in the photos below –

Zoe is older now and can really enjoy this museum more than the last time we were there. It was so great to watch her create! I think we have a little artist in the family. And Ezra loves the Clay Bar where we made little figures of plasticine, then were able to make stop-motion animation with it. This has become one of his favorite museum activities (he’s stolen my digital camera to do it at home as well.)
There were Irish singers and story tellers for St Patrick’s Day art fun, and of course lots of new friends for Zoe to meet at the easels. And Flubber! How could we forget the Flubber station?

Okay I was A HUGE Shirley Temple fan as a kid. I do remember cruising the channels on Saturday and Sunday and wishing for a Shirley Temple movie on cold weekend mornings, and being so delighted when I found one. How can you resist this kid? Maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for this era: the clothes, dresses and look at the spats/wingtips on this guy in this movie clip? Is it the gorgeous colorized film – or am I just longing for a time when people wore hats and gloves on airplanes (instead of hot pink sweat pants with ‘juicy’ printed on the butt?) Do I sound like a curmudgeon now?
I just wanted to give a shout out to Shirley. Talented, diplomatic, amazing performer and woman.

Remember when Zoe and I had our little date this past summer? Well we finally did a follow-through and sat down and had tea! Poor Zoe – with all that went on with Papa Paul this year, her 4th birthday was a little bit ignored. So while her dad and brother saw the new Lego movie (a huge hit with Ezra by the way, and he’s a tough critic!) – Zoe and I went back to Alice’s Tea Cup as a belated birthday treat. She got the full treatment this time: a set of fairy wings, fairy dust sprinkled on to her hair – the whole nine yards. Of course in the end she opted for the hot chocolate with fancy sprinkles on her whip cream and I WAS saddled with drinking the tea, but it was great tea!

Here she is poised to pick out the pinkest cupcake available – look at that excited and happy little face. Happy yummy belated birthday my little muffin:
