Mother’s Day was a beautiful balmy day that encouraged us to go to the beach BUT .. our alley tempted my kids to stay. ¬†Neighbors set up a pool, we sat around and chatted, and lounged all day while the kids were happy. ¬†How can a Mother’s Day get better than that?

We made a long and crazy road trip to Rochester – where the weather was balmy enough for a day (or 2) to hang in the hot tub. Cousin soup! It was a weekend of hiking and playing in the woods, and of course AMAZING FOOD and performances. Zoe cried when we headed home because she already misses all her big cousins wanting to carry her everywhere!

ipad on the mantel to indicate the count down in Time’s Square… the kids loved spraying confetti at the stroke of midnight (poor Zoe couldn’t stay awake ’til then. Bottom photo by Greg Kessler):

Look at this little muffin – I was so proud of her. She had all her lines and moves memorized (and was so nervous, she chewed on her hair until it was soaked in her own saliva) — but what an amazing performance! Her teachers had a party afterwards and created a giant (cardboard) gingerbread house with photo cut outs of all the kids on it – so cute! See Zoe tossing a snowball to her friend Amanda?

We had a day of kicking around that included some crisp thin crust pizza at Fiore’s Pizza, then a trip to Umanov’s Guitar Store. We ran into The Market NYC to check out the wares and somehow my kiddos picked up a little holiday bling for me when I wasn’t looking!

Pardon my mad dash to post as many pix as I can before the year is out, but clearly I’ve lagged on doing anything blog oriented this holiday season! And I have a camera full of memories to share. We went to another Red Chair show at the Skirball Center – this time we saw Doktor Kaboom and his hilarious and informative experiments on getting Santa down a chimney, how to make reindeer fly. Unfortunately much of Dr Kaboom’s equipment didn’t arrive during his travels, but he did manage to throw together a hovercraft made from a shower curtain and leaf blower that carried a little girl across the stage! We got to go back stage and meet him in person, and other fans wished him a happy birthday.
