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:

We went to check out Manhattan’s oldest house and George Washington’s headquarters during the Revolutionary War. Who knew it was right uptown? En route we passed what seems to be the corner diner that Seinfeld and friends hang out at .. and then entered a neighborhood that took us back in time to 1765. The kids got to take a little ‘test’ of sorts – that was more like a scavenger hunt through the house for historic items. And the nice lady at the gift shop told us of some free jazz across the street on Sundays that we hope to see some weekend soon.

Wouldn’t you love a fireplace and blue wallpaper like this? I would..

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.

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.

Making masks while dressed like kings and queens. It goes without saying that we LOVE when Rabbi Wood sports a whacky costume as well! She looks great in wings :
