Last weekend we decorated the sukkah – how can you not love a holiday that celebrates a harvest? And with that in mind, we are scrambling to collect the things that we’ve been growing before all the rain here blows it down.
Have a great weekend!

This is how Jackson Heights does a ‘Family Day’ – with Mr Met of course, and NDI.
Then Zoe (in the brown dress in front) and Ezra (in blue top and plaid shorts behind the gal in denim) joined in on the fun.. Zoe and Ezra have some pretty great ‘spaghetti arms’ and a fabulous finish! Broadway, here we come! (to see larger, click on the link to vimeo here.)

The nicest thing about our friends coming in from London (aside from playing all day) is that they force us to look at parts of the city that we haven’t seen in awhile. For example: Chinatown in Manhattan (instead of the one in Queens) and Little Italy. I had no idea there was so much great art painted on the lamp posts and outdoor areas in lower Manhattan lately! And of course we love exposing Tessa to all our favorite eats – including one real close to home at the farmer’s market. We miss you guys already!
Oh man how did my kids get this big already? Public school uniforms and all .. Not to mention that I’m in shock that summer vacation is over, as I still have some summer pics to post and am lagging behind on keeping the blog current with all our summer adventures. Will be back with more summer scenes soon.
Meanwhile, their dad let me talk him into shooting some more professional first-day photos:

Ahhhh New York Hall of Science, you never cease to amaze us with your improvements and very cool exhibits for kids. We loved the very interactive Connected Worlds and hope to find it exhibited somewhere else soon! By moving electronic logs we could shift the water flow, and waving our arms about made things grow and move. Check out this amazing video to see it all in motion:
