Little tiny cousin Angelo was baptized a few weeks ago. All we know is that Paul and Ezra cannot get enough swim time together, Sophia and Zoe still love to ‘scrub’ Uncle Towel’s (really Uncle Carl’s) head, and that Angelo is adorable. Can’t wait to see him again! He is growing too fast..

Well it’s been a mild winter so far, and today the temps are in the 60s – which I’m kind of digging. But tomorrow we are meant to have a snow day off… will it happen? Will we have another day like the one shown below.. which was back in the beginning of January and blew away within a day? Or will it linger? And I wonder how our new friend Louie will cope with snow –
For Max’s birthday the ‘Leo boys’ took a fishing excursion to the great wide ocean off the coast of Brooklyn. While they didn’t catch anything edible (and compassionately threw many back to the sea) they came home smelling like briny fisherman and had a great day in the sun..! We couldn’t help but think my dad would’ve loved this trip;
At the end of summer we finally got back to our favorite peaceful (traffic free) island just a short boat ride from Manhattan. There’s a new slide on Governor’s that we had to check out (touted as being the largest) and a VW show was on. The kids loved looking at the vintage models from the 60s and now want a van for Chanukah!

Another first week of school is starting, and these 2 look happy in the photos but are really having a hard time with getting back to the grind. We had such a great summer of lying about in the heat and reading, or jumping into city pools, tending the garden and eating from the garden. Summer is just too dang short really – if I could home school them I would. They are just that enjoyable to be around.

We miss our blog’s biggest fan (he loved our posts about Lower East Side food the most), and he was always a wonderful uncle and friend.
Sheldon Roodman rest in peace.
