Cup Of Jo posted this illustration by Sarah Lazarovic yesterday and it cracked me up.. it’s so true! Four seasons do not quite feel like FOUR seasons here in NYC. We had that brief blurb of spring a couple days ago… I do plan on putting some photos on the blog of our attempts to bike and get outside but it’s almost depressing that it’s already gone – that fresh warmer air.
Oh well. We will find more adventure this weekend regardless of the cold so – stay tuned. And have a great weekend.

Yesterday was dreary, cold and gray – and today the park looks a bit more like a winter wonderland. So much so that I am tempted to leave work for a walk in the park, no matter how cold it may be out there. It’s hard to believe we got a day of 50 degree weather on Sunday – this winter has been crazy. Here are a couple of shots of yesterday, and now:

We went to the main branch of the New York Public Library for the ABC of It: Why Children’s Books Matter show. It was not only fascinating for adults (especially those like myself who LOVE children’s book illustrations) but also for kids who enjoy any exhibit that’s interactive and allow them to touch and sit on everything! We even learned of some new books that we haven’t read yet…

End of the summer, trying to play on the lake in the rain, Loren created a humongous paella, fishing, figs from Megan’s yard, and Zoe cannot seem to take her mind off that nest swing. She wants to swing in it all day! Her feet hanging out of the front… slays me. The level of cuteness is ridiculous.

We had a rare and wonderful opportunity to go to the circus one rainy afternoon (thanks to Ezra’s friend Brad, and family). We’ve been to the circus before but it’s a kid pleaser whenever we go. This one in particular kept the kids engrossed with dogs doing tricks, pretty white horses parading around the ring, and a troupe of stunt bikers from China with excellent costumes! The NY Daily News raved “The new edition of the 35-year-old circus known for a single ring and audience-friendly intimacy is filled with polished acts and fun facts.” No lions, no elephants and no shooting anyone out of a canon. It just goes to show that when it comes to kids, sometimes less is more.

Ugh it was rainy and cold at the beginning of the week – but now it’s sweltering hot and we have grandma in from Rochester to help hold down the fort while E and Z’s parents work (and work and work). So we are hoping to take it easy this weekend. Although another World Science Festival is happening downtown, and E and Z’s dad is photographing the event so – you never can tell what weekend activity will end up on the blog next week. There’s also a concert that Ezra performed in that I cannot WAIT to put up on the blog. What a little song bird he is – who knew? But for now we will say, have a great weekend. And we will try to take it easy while it’s so hot!

Meanwhile we leave you with some shots from our last rainy (and very cold) day in Manhattan. Let’s hope it was our last for a while (and thank you grandma for keeping us occupied in the heat).

Speaking of modern museum life… we stood in line for a couple hours today trying to get into the MoMA’s new Rain Room Show (see a great post on it here.) Cup of Jo raves “Heavy rain pours down in an enormous room, but when you step into the rain, the area directly over your head dries up. So you can walk, dance and kiss in the rain without getting wet!”

However with all the rain going on OUTSIDE the museum, it’s hard to get enthusiastic about going into a Rain Room (especially if you’ve been waiting in line under an umbrella with antsy kids for too long). Oh well, we will try another day. But meanwhile here are a few shots from my office window of what May is looking like today. Rain blowing sideways and all. Ugh. (As you can see by my feet reflected in the last shot, I clearly didn’t dress for rain today.)
