Ezra loves making shelters for the cats, and is a natural goat-whisperer. Zoe loved getting into her stars and stripes dress with the other girls for fourth of July, and making badges for camp with ‘grown up’ sharpie/markers. The list of things to do in the country is endless..

I use to love to photograph this parade back before I was married or had kids. I had nearly forgotten about it – and then somehow Zoe got wind of it and (being recently obsessed with mermaids) just had to partake in the mermaid fun. It was hot and super crowded, but since the kids are so tiny – they could get to the front of the crowd and see the costumes. Ezra – being the good natured brother that he is – even got dressed up as King Neptune for Zoe’s enjoyment. In the end I think Mayor DeBlasio even approached Ezra and gave him a gold coin while dressed like a pirate. The crowds were so thick that people started climbing the scaffolding on the sidewalks – but in the end it was worth it. (By the way – Zoe painted her shells herself!)
On Zoe’s last day of school she had to wear all yellow for her performance of the ‘Little Duck’ song. She practiced this religiously for weeks and even added her own musical pauses in-between the lyrics (which always cracked me up). In the end she and her friends put on a great show … you can see by the sea of parents with cameras that this was well documented ! Now I just have to get the video version out of Z’s dad’s iPhone and post it for you all to see..
Sorry I’ve lagged in my blogging. This week I hope to get on photos from the past 2 weekends… in Boston and in Cornwall. Lots of frolicking outdoors now that finally we can – without coats. It’s amazing.
This shot of Zoe says it all – her dad took this with his iPhone late last week. After a couple hours of school he found her napping on the back of our couch like this .. it reminded me of The Far Side cartoon ‘boneless chicken ranch‘. Let’s hope our summer schedule calms down a bit!
