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.

Of course once we learned that grandma and grandpa’s neighbor had a swank car, someone had to ask for a test ride. He was thrilled as you can see here! (iPhone pix taken by his dad)

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.

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!

We had a lot of friends over, and yet a basically mellow weekend. How about you?
