After visiting friends in Rye NY, we made a trip to Muscoot Farms. This sweet little farm doesn’t encourage feeding the animals but sometimes you can pat one.. and there was a great little farmer’s market going on that Sunday. We loved the fresh strawberries.

Have a great 4th of July weekend everyone!

More often than not, don’t you feel like you get to relive your own childhood when you spend summers with kids? So far it’s been firefly catching and visits to a boat house – and Muscoot Farm (I hope to post those photos next). What else will summer bring? It’s already going too fast – 4th of July is nearly here and I don’t even know what happened to May and June. Can you find the firefly hunters in the dark in the photo below?

As I remember E sort of learned how to walk by holding the edge of the ferry’s indoor seating benches, and walking back and forth from Manhattan to Staten Island. That was back in 2007 – now here he is about to graduate from his first school and move on to the next. All these littles are growing too fast! (thanks to mamma Kerry for the photos!)

How did I forget to post these pretty pictures? Nothing is more Americana than the Memorial Day ceremonies in West Cornwall CT – with their quaint parade of old fashioned cars, firetrucks and carnival afterwards. We did the Cakewalk again around the Maypole and Brad even won a cake covered in gummy worms!

We went to Brad’s nonna’s house for a little dinner. We love her upright piano and all her gorgeous paintings… thanks nonna for dinner and for a good time!

That screened in porch – I want to sleep in it. What are YOU up to this weekend?

One of my great regrets in life may be that I never was able to have a house with a large enough yard to accommodate Ezra’s undying love for these kid ATVs. His friend had one years ago, and Ezra got hooked on driving it around and around a large yard. He came home to the city and I think he fantasized about driving it to school — picking up friends as he rode along. Now he’s almost too large – note his knees coming up so high – yet he loves riding. While we were in Boston for cousin Paul’s birthday even Zoe and Sophia got hooked! And I love how well the girls play with each other – cousins born just 6 months apart.

I feel like we’ve been watching this giant ice cube melt for MONTHS. Finally the water is flowing and the dads even jumped into the freezing water. We had a weekend of on and off rain… but when it was sunny it was great to pull the canoes out.
Now if only we could get those docks back out into the lake.

Mmmmm we love the smell of warm dirt and turning over new grass. We tend to offer to help out with our friend’s garden because it’s just too fun to dig in all that moist soil. We took apart a vegetable garden that’s been neglected for at least 8 years… and the kids took breaks by getting back on the big swing. It’s beginning to look a lot like growth and warmth season is really here!

Enjoy the weekend.

Well the little ones returned to LegoLand again – this time to the LegoLand in Yonkers NY. While there aren’t as many ‘big rides’ as there were in the Florida location, there are still lots of fun stations to build in. Ezra finally got to spend some solid time making and racing some lego cars, and Zoe met a BFF in the movie theater! And look – you can enter to try to win the VIP treatment and trip for 4 to LegoLand Florida by clicking here!
