While packing I’ve hesitated to pack away all the kids toys. I worry that a rainy day will come and they will have not-as-much-to-do with all their things put away for the move. Imagine my surprise when they spent nearly 2-3 solid days doing nothing but creating this ‘camper’ or box car … with one moving box and my husband’s equipment cart! I think this toy is coming with us.

It even has ‘disco lighting’ inside!

I’ve been dying to get to this beautiful new museum – constructed on farm land and made (in my opinion) to look like a grand, elegant barn full of contemporary art. It was fun sending the kids on an art scavenger hunt on a rainy afternoon —

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.
