As if NYC needs another brilliant candy store, right? (Remember our trip to this one and this one?) Well while walking around the upper east side we were drawn into this great place. Zoe is still obsessing about getting her ears pierced… just to be able to get the sweet cupcake packaging with a new pair of earrings. And both mom AND daughter want a dress made of candy now! Have a sweet weekend –

We stopped in on a show that is all about how photographs are shared today, compared to how photos have been used in the past. Public Eye: 175 Years of Sharing Photography really had me reflecting on my own use of this blog and instagram… and how little photo archive I have of my own childhood compared to the mass of photos I have of my own children. Part of me always wishes I had the time to print photos and put them into albums the old fashioned way – so that the kids can access them constantly but let’s face it – I can store more images electronically in the end. Will this medium always be here or what new platform will come along?

It’s back to being cold here of course, and when we make that first foray to Central Park and then realize that we are freezing – it’s always great to pop into The Met Museum (again) for warmth and an afternoon of sketching sculpture.

Once again E and Z’s dad scored us some early viewing tickets to Cinderella. The kids were encouraged to dress up like prince and princess and we had some free popcorn and soda. The movie by the way is gorgeous… the costumes are amazing. And Helena Bonham Carter as the fairy godmother, Cate Blanchett as the step mother? Incredible casting! If you asked the kids for their reviews it would go pretty much like this: Ezra loved the talking mice, and Zoe loved the big blue swirly dress. There’s a sweet little short film about Elsa and Anna to start the show as well, which the kids also loved.

Lego stores popping up everywhere these days…even the ‘big kids’ passing by outside couldn’t resist stopping to see a lego town. Ezra and Zoe spent an hour in the ‘free play’ room building and then displaying their lego creations.
I love that there are entire bins of lego blocks in various colors. And lego flowers? Yes please!

We’ve been meaning to do this for a long time now but finally both Ezra and Zoe are old enough to sit still and appreciate a live show. Every Sunday from 2-3 pm Jazz Standard (under Blue Smoke restaurant) has a kid’s live jazz show – starring other kid jazz performers! Inspiring to watch – especially for kids who are also learning to play an instrument. And of course Ezra had the sample the city’s best beef ribs, which are on the kid menu!
