We stepped out to DUMBO again and enjoyed the last of the longer days before dusk settled in … the kids still love running around the glass enclosed carousel and climbing on the sculpture around Brooklyn Waterfront Park. But frankly the temps got too cold to hang outdoors for much longer and we finally put the fireplace to good use again! Note that we moved the furniture around so that our toes would get the heat…

It was actually 2 weekends ago that we went to see this performance of Pippin at St Anne’s School in Brooklyn. Our friend made all 65 costumes for the cast, so in part we go to support her – but more importantly my kids just LOVE watching other kids perform. And this show was outstanding! Ezra and Zoe cannot stop singing some of the tunes from the show. And as a new rule – I try to take the kids to shows where children are in the cast. It helps keep their attention!

We got to see an amazing light exhibit in DUMBO last weekend… a nice last weekend of balmy weather topped off by projected light art on Manhattan Bridge. Can’t beat it! Check the video here: http://online.wsj.com/articles/new-york-festival-of-light-in-brooklyn-rivals-times-square-1415299739

After a pretty near perfect day at the beach (Jacob Riis beach to be exact) – where Ezra coaxed me into the HUGE warm waves to be smashed around with him on the shore (a new game that he loves) – we went to this totally yummy spot for some fish tacos. There was a bit of a long line but it was definitely worth the wait for fresh ingredients, and a fresh coconut as our beverage. Rumor has it the owner surfs in South East Asia on the off season, and then opens this little taco hut for the summer only. Check out their fun promo movie here; http://rockawaytaco.com/.

I use to love to photograph this parade back before I was married or had kids. I had nearly forgotten about it – and then somehow Zoe got wind of it and (being recently obsessed with mermaids) just had to partake in the mermaid fun. It was hot and super crowded, but since the kids are so tiny – they could get to the front of the crowd and see the costumes. Ezra – being the good natured brother that he is – even got dressed up as King Neptune for Zoe’s enjoyment. In the end I think Mayor DeBlasio even approached Ezra and gave him a gold coin while dressed like a pirate. The crowds were so thick that people started climbing the scaffolding on the sidewalks – but in the end it was worth it. (By the way – Zoe painted her shells herself!)

The weather was unseasonably warm during the beginning of this week … all the way up to near 70 degrees! As I drove back from Boston I saw people in Central Park wearing only tee shirts and shorts – in late December. We decided it would be a perfect balmy night to see the crazy over-the-top holiday lights in the Dyker Heights section of Brooklyn. The light show didn’t disappoint and for the first time we could get out of the car and walk around, without freezing.

Hope you are enjoying your week everyone!
