Even though we are not moving too far, I will still miss all this activity right outside our apartment door. Nothing like a lazy Sunday morning with a Bolivian Parade marching by in amazing costumes and performing dances right at your door!

Our last grasp at summer… the waves were amazing, the blown sand made it all look like the moon. And we finally got to play with those incredible kites that grandma and grandpa got from their trip to China!

I’ve been depressed that August is drawing to a close. I can’t believe how quickly this summer is passing – and kids are going to be in school again soon. Although honestly it’s almost better to have them in school while we work on our new house. I’m afraid they’ve seen wayyyyyy too much of Home Depot this summer.

In these last weeks we’ve been trying to see more of friends (who are now out of day camp). A little game of Twister, a trip to South Street Seaport. We went to the Imagination Playground downtown, where kids are encouraged to use giant blue foamy blocks to create something together. I wish school could be like this for the kids .. instead of books and sitting still, some time to work in teams and create something. At least we can get them to this once in awhile – while the weather is still nice.

Well when we finally made it to the Pittsford NY area to retrieve our kids, we found a great thing to do outdoors… check out some Civil War history. As always the kids had some interesting questions that only kids can come up with like; ‘where do the soldiers go to the bathroom?’ and ‘why don’t the kids have electronics?’ (ipads, to be specific). It was a hot day so I’m still surprised everyone was willing to wear all that clothing and hoop skirts. And I learned what a reticule is (Zoe is pointing to them in the photo below) … who knew?

more fun upstate at Roseland Waterpark – and of course it wouldn’t be summer vacation if it wasn’t capped off with an ice cream at the end !

Genesee Country Museum, Go Karts (and mini-golf for Zoe, who is still too small to ride.) I need to collect these little adventurers this weekend — so more photos next week! These pix courtesy of Aunt Becca and Grandma’s iphones:

and of course that means a trip to Strong Museum! Remember this amazing place? When the weather gets fussy, it’s a great place for the kids to spend HOURS playing (photos courtesy of Karen Kessler!). Hey isn’t that a scene from Sesame Street where Zoe is standing? I thought that was here in Queens!:
