Some photos from Florida -

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: IMG_4067 IMG_4069 IMG_4070 IMG_4071 IMG_4076 IMG_4077 IMG_4080 IMG_4082 IMG_4086 IMG_4087 IMG_4093 IMG_5787 IMG_5790 IMG_5791 IMG_5794

Have a great weekend..

We are going to have pix of our frolic in warmer temps… soon:

Ok I’ve mentioned the incredibly creative ‘mamma Loren‘ a number of times on this blog, it’s true. BUT I put this idea up on instagram and it was met with a lot of interest and curiosity. SO I thought you’d want to know that YOU TOO can get your winter-weather stir crazy kids to ‘climb the walls’ by simple ordering some grips on REI.com – then affix to the wall! Check out Zoe and Ezra giving it a try:

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!

A pre-Valentine’s Day date

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!
