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.

While packing I’ve hesitated to pack away all the kids toys. I worry that a rainy day will come and they will have not-as-much-to-do with all their things put away for the move. Imagine my surprise when they spent nearly 2-3 solid days doing nothing but creating this ‘camper’ or box car … with one moving box and my husband’s equipment cart! I think this toy is coming with us.
It even has ‘disco lighting’ inside!

I found these older photos in my camera… from the beginning of September back when Governor’s Island was open and the art fair was going on. The kids loved the interactive talking robotic goat, and African music and dance. There was a jump rope jumping contest (that E&Z’s dad did surprisingly well at!) We will miss it now that the cooler weather is moving in.
