We had another round of cousins come through! We took them to Oculus and lower Manhattan for some slide and playground time, then invited them along to find eggs in our alley. While the boys went to a Yankees game, the gals went to see an acrobatic show titled ‘Something’ in Times Square. Zoe loves the huge cupcakes sold outside of the theater. The weather was unseasonably warm so kids were able to dye eggs outdoors (whew.. less mess). Ezra is super proud of his ‘galaxy egg’ seen here:

This is just a quick round up of some photos we have on instagram and that were stuck in my camera in general. More blog posts coming soon!

I’m not sure I can do a nine hour marathon of Halloween again, but it sure was fun albeit exhausting. We started at the parade at noon, and then had a party in our alley until dark when everyone went out to collect candy at least until 9pm.
Thank you gregkessler.com for all the great photos!

We are back to a more spring-like cold snap today, but a few days ago the temperatures soared up to the high 70s — and Ezra was BEYOND excited that our new alley neighbors wanted to create a lemonade stand with him. I think he was in heaven for a day – we all were. We stayed outdoors and planted things. And Ezra and his crew made enough money to pay back the parents for their supplies, and still have a few dollars in their pockets ! (I hear the ‘competition’ on the other side of the alley donated all their hard earned cash to a charity.) I hope the better weather returns soon!

Well shortly after writing about our blustery snowy day, we started to see a bit of a thaw here in NYC. As my family in Boston deals with breaking a snow record with their 108 inches of snow as of Sunday, we are started to see tiny buds of tulips coming up on the front lawn and the alley is wet from all the melting snow. Will it last – or is this just March being tempestuous again? I dread the idea of a rogue snowstorm in April!
