MAN we need to find some new stuff to do. We are revisiting the same museums – but thank goodness they have new ever-changing exhibits to be excited about! I for one cannot wait to spend more time outdoors. But the Korakrit Arunanondchai exhibit at least had some fun, giant denim cushions to sack out on. Basically the kids love any art they can touch or climb on. Check it out this weekend:

Suddenly Ezra has turned a corner and I see him like this more and more often – on a couch or on the floor engrossed in a chapter book! It’s pretty amazing when your child learns how to read – really knows how to read and is suddenly doing it on his own, and loving it. It saddens me a little that I will be reading TO HIM less. But I’m so proud, just the same.

Thanks to Marcello and his moms for passing this cool bike seat on to us! Zoe loves it .. and getting to the farmer’s market is so much more fun:

Am I really going to talk about the weather… again? Am I starting to bore you? I am starting to bore myself. But the weather has been a hot topic. And I feel a bit in shock that this week has been tolerable. I’ve heard a number of people compare themselves to moles – emerging from underground and seeing the sun for the first time in ages. New Yorkers feel like they are rubbing their eyes in the sun and adjusting to the new bright and warmer weather. Is it really here? Was the groundhog right this year afterall? I guess it now has been about 6 weeks since the groundhog’s predictions.
BUT I was so happy when I took this photo with my phone last night (the official first day of spring) at nearly 7 pm, while waiting on the subway platform for my train with all the other Queens commuters. Look at that glorious sun – now lingering longer in the day and into the early evening! I cannot wait for summer. I promise to never complain about the heat.
Enjoy your weekend.

We are basically sun starved and craving outdoor time after such a ruthless winter. So nothing could be better than finding a new park to explore in Queens! Hunter’s Point South Park looks over the water from LIC towards the city – so we can see the Empire State building and Chrysler building while we play.
