Well.. GMA asked us to return again and this time they asked us if we had some antique furniture that needed restoring.  Boy were we happy to hear this request!  We’ve had a great pair of chairs in our basement play area – which we found on the curb and knew were in great shape (but needed some love).  We never got around to ‘the love’ so were happy to hear they might revamp them for us.  They stripped off all the old paint and stained the lovely wood and even reupholstered the cushions with a wipe-able fabric!  We are so pleased, and the whole experience of being on TV together… well that was priceless.

See our chairs ‘before and after’ and the whole segment here!

Did it seem like it was winter just a day or 2 ago?  That’s how it goes here in NYC – cold to hot.  Usually we like to enter this museum (AMNH) for all the great science exhibits but on a day as hot as this one… the sprinklers outside are just too enticing!

Meanwhile Louie has taken to lounging wherever it’s cool and Zoe is finding more creative reading spots:

Last weekend Ezra went to see George Clinton and his notorious P Funk band play at Flushing Meadows. When Ezra saw the drummer offstage, he commented that he loved his ’32nd beats’ and the drummer was so pleased that he had to sign a drum stick for E! See more about the drummer  Benzel Baltimore here: http://georgeclinton.com/family/benjamin-benzel-cowan/

Clearly my boy loves hanging with the band.

Remember when we ran into this couple getting married at The Met Museum? Well they decided to have a wedding party (years later) this past weekend at the lake. What a pretty location and amazing time we had! Our toes were in the water, lights twinkling over tables on the dock, and I got to tie a lot of nature on to vases (with twine) to decorate – and everyone made a dish to share (including that huge pile of yummy cupcakes.) What an amazing start to summer.

Zoe convinced me to ‘wear some flair’ – feathery earrings!

WSF always has an indoor event where we can visit multiple tables and learn about various fun science tips and facts!  Once again we dragged grandma along (although she was easy to convince to come) to see how gravity works, how to engineer pedestals that withstand earthquakes and recreate the ‘glide’ of a flying squirrel.  Best of all we got to bump into E and Z’s dad while he worked (and sometimes stand in as models if he needed) –

Once again E and Z’s dad was hired to shoot a week of fun science events around the city, and we had grandma in to help with staying on top of things while parents were working like crazy.  The WSF had some great outdoor activities – like exploring the water life around our local park (Gantry), as well as an amazing Star Gazing event later in the evening in Brooklyn! I think we were wiped out after a whole day of activity but were happy we could show grandma the ropes on the WSF!
