We got another urge to explore Brooklyn and found ourselves wandering around the Lefferts House at Prospect Park. Apparently the house isn’t open on weekends this time of year but the kids still get inspired running around its yard. Ezra is very into the Laura Ingalls Wilder series of books these days – so seeing a horse-drawn wagon and water pump just makes him the happiest kid ever. We will have to blog about this place once we get on the inside of the house!
And Zoe loves being near the carousel at dusk when the lights on it twinkle. It’s worth mentioning that her outfit was inspired by her need to look like a ‘ladybug and a bee’ all in the same day.

Some time ago, friends sent us a weblink to this place. We really wished Buzz-a-Rama was open during the summer so that Ezra could have a birthday party here. It was a fun sleepy hangout on a cold Sunday afternoon however – and Zoe and her girlfriends even enjoyed an hour of racing. Now I think E has some grand ideas of building a track in our living room!

Remember we did this post about our creative friends in Astoria Queens and their adorable Lyla Tov monsters? (We’ve got a button of little monsters in our widgets that you can click on.) Well.. we got a chance to see them again – at a party thanking everyone for their recent kickstarter success! Momma Erin is so creative.. she transformed the basement level of a synagogue into a carnival and Lyla Tov monster fiesta. Congrats to the Black family on their continued monster-making success!

Before the trees go bare, we got to Central Park to climb on rocks and enjoy the turning leaves. The first is a photo of the park from my office… from overhead I could see that patchwork of tree foliage and had to get the kids there before the colder weather comes. This past weekend was so temperate that the kids could still remove their shoes and hang in the sandbox! I love Central Park this time of year when it reminds me of a scene out of a Woody Allen movie. So magical.

After checking out Ezra’s march around the block I had to race to Zoe’s school to see her and her friends in their costumes, having a little feast of fruit! She inadvertently picked a book character as well … she was ‘Pinkalicious‘ for a day. And later joined her brother for the Jackson Heights Halloween Parade – to march down our main street and collect candy.

Halloween was full of school activity, as well as a parade at the end of the day. For starters Ezra’s class made hats that indicated their favorite book characters (this year it was Laura Ingalls Wilder for E) and then paraded around the block in costumes AND hats!

Yep - he wanted to show off the car costume again seeing as the hurricane kept viewers away last year.
