Sorry for the delay. We are back to the colder temps and already missing Florida. It was a little chilly there – 50 degrees on some days – but when it rains or gets cold we love the Museum of Discover and Science in Fort Lauderdale:

We are going to have pix of our frolic in warmer temps… soon:
Lego stores popping up everywhere these days…even the ‘big kids’ passing by outside couldn’t resist stopping to see a lego town. Ezra and Zoe spent an hour in the ‘free play’ room building and then displaying their lego creations.
I love that there are entire bins of lego blocks in various colors. And lego flowers? Yes please!
on Feb 14 I woke up to this lovely Valentine’s Day surprise:
We’ve been meaning to do this for a long time now but finally both Ezra and Zoe are old enough to sit still and appreciate a live show. Every Sunday from 2-3 pm Jazz Standard (under Blue Smoke restaurant) has a kid’s live jazz show – starring other kid jazz performers! Inspiring to watch – especially for kids who are also learning to play an instrument. And of course Ezra had the sample the city’s best beef ribs, which are on the kid menu!

My husband and I like to celebrate a little earlier (or later) than Valentine’s Day, in order avoid all the chaos of the actual holiday (battling for reservations and dealing with over-decorated restaurants with mediocre ‘prix fix’ menus is not for us). This year we discovered Butcher Bar in Astoria – where even my mostly vege-pescatarian husband was tempted by great smoked meat. The Beef Candy sandwich was amazing – I’m already craving another.
Enjoy your weekend and happy Valentine’s Day!
