After a pretty near perfect day at the beach (Jacob Riis beach to be exact) – where Ezra coaxed me into the HUGE warm waves to be smashed around with him on the shore (a new game that he loves) – we went to this totally yummy spot for some fish tacos. There was a bit of a long line but it was definitely worth the wait for fresh ingredients, and a fresh coconut as our beverage. Rumor has it the owner surfs in South East Asia on the off season, and then opens this little taco hut for the summer only. Check out their fun promo movie here; http://rockawaytaco.com/.

Hey you… this is YOU during the week we first brought you home and clearly the both of us needed a lot of sleep. What a joy you’ve been – and I cannot keep up to how fast you and your sister have grown but I always remember that new puppy smell you had when you were tiny. We called you ‘our little man’ and ‘Mister Ezra’ because you always seem to be a wise soul in a little body, but now that body is catching up too. I shudder to think that you’ll soon go from being a big boy to a man, but I imagine it’s true seeing as this transition from baby to boy has gone so quickly.
Happy 8th birthday my boo bear. Here are some pictures of the teeny tiny parts of you that we took in when we first met you, to remind you of how much you’ve grown!

This creative momma had another baby! Beautiful little August came into the world August 2nd, and we were invited to their excellent home with the lounge in the garage –

Ezra was so moved by what the rabbi said during the service. At one point he looked at me with tears in his eyes and said “mommy I’m crying a little and I don’t know why – maybe ’cause the baby is so cute?”

I think he was responding to the rabbi’s request to have the two older brothers hold their new baby and promise that they will share their toys, teach him to be safe, etc. Zoe enjoyed riding a tricycle that looked like one that I USED in the 70s! Ok basically I took these photos because Zoe actually chose to wear something that wasn’t pink, for the first time in years!
It was a lovely time.

.. are running around enjoying their birthdays this week. All three were born within 10 days of each other, and all have known each other since they were a year old or less. I love that they still want to spend so much time hanging out together.

Ezra, Lea and Max – about to turn, turning and already turned 8 respectively. Scary that the mustache seems to just fit on E’s face!

Our house
Is a very very very fine house
With two cats birds in the yard
Life use to be so hard
Now everything is easy, cause of you

It’s gonna take a lot of elbow grease, and I haven’t lived in a house for near 30 years… but it’s destined to be a great adventure. And it has great light, no? The birds (who won’t leave the garage) seem to think so too.

There’s nothing worse than dying to see your kids all week, and then your flight to pick them up gets CANCELLED! The only thing good that came out of that evening was a quick trip to Saw Shack for dinner. This new Chinese restaurant in our ‘hood makes yummy, fresh Chinese food with vegan and vegetarian options too. We had the shrimp with mango and it was amazing .. no sauces smothering the mango. The tofu dish with broccoli was incredible as well. It’s pathetic that all I have to show here is a half eaten dish, but trust me it went down quickly and held us over for the next 6-8 hours of waiting in an airport, begging for a flight to get to our kids. The orange infused water is definitely something I want to try at home.

not fine dining here but the food is super fresh and tasty!

Lots of excitement outside our apartment building door this past weekend. It’s the end of Eid – we’ve posted about this before. There are tables set out where women are putting henna patterns on hands, and iftar boxes are being sold. We are not moving far, but I will miss being in the thick of this. Often I feel transported to another place, for sure. Humans Of New York caught some shots of the festivities going on in Flushing Queens – gotta love New York City for all this cultural exposure. I had never heard of this holiday before moving here. Eid Mubarak!
