that previous post is now fixed!

Click the link here and watch the vids by clicking on the ‘white triangles’ under each to start the video … (yes, I’m breaking it down simple here and hoping it works. It’s worth the effort.)

This is how Jackson Heights does a ‘Family Day’ – with Mr Met of course, and NDI.

Then Zoe (in the brown dress in front) and Ezra (in blue top and plaid shorts behind the gal in denim) joined in on the fun.. Zoe and Ezra have some pretty great ‘spaghetti arms’ and a fabulous finish! Broadway, here we come! (to see larger, click on the link to vimeo here.)

Ezra’s school had an amazing opportunity to be visited by The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus. We were the only school in Queens (and one of only 5 schools in NYC) to get the opportunity to explore the bus which “continues to be dedicated to providing young people with tours of the studios and participation in free songwriting and multimedia production workshops”. With the assistance of three on-board engineers students learn how to write, perform, record, and produce original songs, produce and shoot music videos and documentaries and complete a broadcast quality music video – all in one day!
Our very own councilman Danny Dromm most likely made it all happen (see him posing next to Yoko Ono in the photo below) – and at the end the kids created a peace sign like the one seen in this Manhattan school picture below.

The nicest thing about our friends coming in from London (aside from playing all day) is that they force us to look at parts of the city that we haven’t seen in awhile. For example: Chinatown in Manhattan (instead of the one in Queens) and Little Italy. I had no idea there was so much great art painted on the lamp posts and outdoor areas in lower Manhattan lately! And of course we love exposing Tessa to all our favorite eats – including one real close to home at the farmer’s market. We miss you guys already!

One weekend evening there was a ‘last hurrah’ of sorts at the lake – where everyone brought a dish for the potluck and bluegrass music entertained the crowd. When everyone pitches in to pick the flowers and create the candle path, it really feels intimate and cozy. The kids took one last dive off the dock with a bit of hesitation – all of us wishing the day at the lake could last forever.

Remember this fun place? We were back at it… trying on the amusement park rides and checking out adorable baby pigs (and trying real hard to avoid all the deep fried food in the summer heat.) But we definitely brought home some blue ribbon pies to test!

We had a relaxing weekend with friends in Connecticut again, and had a chance to visit a chicken farm and collect eggs! I was surprised by how patient the chickens were around small kids, and not a single egg broken!
