Well, before school started we ran off to Connecticut again (and to the Hamptons too but that post is to come). Trying to get as much lake, beach, outdoors as we can before the weather shifts. School has been gently ramping up again – I’m pleasantly surprised by how responsible Ezra is being about his work and Zoe always loves the challenge. Let’s hope it continues. Meanwhile we let the kids choose their ideal meal on this dreamy weekend…

Zoe and Luca put their life vests on, jumped in a canoe and paddled off! These little adventurers forgot to ask their parents about this…

Our end-of-summer ritual … going to the Goshen Fair.  It’s not often that our family separates – but this time Zoe was hell-bent on seeing all the cute animals and Ezra wanted to hit Lime Rock for their annual Classic Car Show.  So my girl and I got a day on our own:

She and her new friend Luca had walkie talkies, and spoke through these even when only a foot apart from each other!

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!

How did this year fly by so quickly? I can’t believe it’s nearly June… JUNE!!
Well we tripped out to ‘cation house again for some of the weekend – where we saw a car show and met the neighbor’s dog Kumi. The sun poked its head out for a bit so that the kids could hone their kayak rowing skills, and then we needed to get back to the city for a busy week of E&Z’s dad working days and nights. If the blog goes a little radio silent for a bit, we will be back soon after the crazy work spell is over! Meanwhile some shots from our Instagram feed:

While en route home we stopped off at a duckpin bowling alley in Danbury Ct.   Haven’t heard of duckpin?  This was such a part of my Massachusetts childhood (see here.)

This bowling alley seemed to be frozen in time… somewhere in the 60s!  It was great to feel like I was a kid again – tallying our own bowling scores without that screen overhead and sitting on this amazing fiberglass molded bench that I want to take home!  Add the photos of bowling teams in bee hive hairdos and the holiday decorations from my childhood and I felt like I was sitting in a movie set.  And oh yeah, the kids love bowling with smaller balls and pins at the same time –

Happy New Year!

We got back from sunny Florida and headed to Connecticut for a great NYE party.  By the next morning there was enough blanket of snow to go out for a New Year’s Day fat burning snow hike.  We had our new friend Jem the rescue dog in tow for a walk (owned by our friend Tom) and explored the snowy fields and frozen lake, and a tree full of frozen-in-time icicles!  Back to the grind..

It was a crazy busy week last week of movie premiers and parent/teacher conferences. We ran off to a friend’s house in the country to enjoy the foliage but it was covered with snow by Sunday! Here are some snaps from IG of some of the highlights :
