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!

Ok I do love that Zoe loves her dad so much, and Ezra’s life-long crush is mentioned as well. BUT he talks like such a big boy… and talks of getting a hotel room? I’m baffled.
Enjoy:

Ezra and Zoe were invited to talk to the Today show about ‘what love is’ (along with many many other kids, so we wait to hear whether or not their explanations for love will “make the cut”.) If they do make the cut – I will be posting a link to the Today Show for all to see, that’s for sure! Meanwhile the kids enjoyed being in a TV studio and got to tour some other shows in the same building . Stay tuned for more ( I hope ) – but meanwhile here they are hard at work in midtown. Enjoy the weekend!

It was actually 2 weekends ago that we went to see this performance of Pippin at St Anne’s School in Brooklyn. Our friend made all 65 costumes for the cast, so in part we go to support her – but more importantly my kids just LOVE watching other kids perform. And this show was outstanding! Ezra and Zoe cannot stop singing some of the tunes from the show. And as a new rule – I try to take the kids to shows where children are in the cast. It helps keep their attention!

It’s nice to see the Lower East Side hasn’t changed as much as I thought, and to share my old ‘hood with my kids? Well, that’s just the icing on the cake. We got a clear day to enjoy gazing at downtown architecture, stopped to check out books at The Strand and popped into punk rock and Goth shops with costumes (and a room of glow in the dark clothes that Zoe really loved). We even tried some new-for-us food faves like Japanese street food from Otafuku.
