I really cannot believe we are finally smelling some cut grass outdoors, and generally the air is fresh and warm! What a long winter we’ve had –
With warmer temps comes Zoe’s desire to get good at riding her brother’s old balance bike. I am tempted to paint it purple for her…
We even got to play dress up outdoors and run around like mermaids (with Z’s friend Hazel on the slide). Summer… bring it on!

We had a rare and wonderful opportunity to go to the circus one rainy afternoon (thanks to Ezra’s friend Brad, and family). We’ve been to the circus before but it’s a kid pleaser whenever we go. This one in particular kept the kids engrossed with dogs doing tricks, pretty white horses parading around the ring, and a troupe of stunt bikers from China with excellent costumes! The NY Daily News raved “The new edition of the 35-year-old circus known for a single ring and audience-friendly intimacy is filled with polished acts and fun facts.” No lions, no elephants and no shooting anyone out of a canon. It just goes to show that when it comes to kids, sometimes less is more.

While at the NY Hall of Science we saw the Tony Hawk Rad Science show on the science of skateboarding. Kids got to learn about balance and gravity while playing with interactive exhibits. Of course Ezra loved the video games most, and his friend Nael wore his ‘pillow case cape’ in case he needed any extra ‘air’ while exploring — meanwhile Zoe was obsessed with ramps!
