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.

While we went to Target to get Zoe her prize for sleeping in her own bed, a snow storm hit and we needed to stop somewhere warm and cozy to eat. What better cold-weather dish than broth and noodles in this the more authentic Chinatown of Queens? We did a bit of walking around to find an underground ‘mall’ of more restaurants, and discovered how dumplings are made. Biang’s panda prints and green dumplings are hands down the best!

Here are some last images of our week in Florida. As I write this 3-5 inches of snow have already been dumped on New York City, I’m sore from shoveling and hiking kids to school.. and these photos are seeming enticing.

When it was too chilly for the beach, this playground in Boca provided hours of fun for the kids. Lots of climbing space with little hidden areas of wheels and buttons meant imaginative play for the cousins – and the carousel offered a nice break before lunch.

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

Sorry for the delay. We are back to the colder temps and already missing Florida. It was a little chilly there – 50 degrees on some days – but when it rains or gets cold we love the Museum of Discover and Science in Fort Lauderdale: IMG_4067 IMG_4069 IMG_4070 IMG_4071 IMG_4076 IMG_4077 IMG_4080 IMG_4082 IMG_4086 IMG_4087 IMG_4093 IMG_5787 IMG_5790 IMG_5791 IMG_5794

We found a frozen bog while hiking through the woods, and did a little unconventional skating over mossy bits and frozen leaves. It was bumpy, but offered a way to enjoy the cold! The grandparents will be relieved to see that this time we were skating on very shallow water.
