We made a quick getaway for the long weekend, before the hustle of homework and extracurricular stuff starts. We had perfect weather and some exposure to lots of street signs in French – and Louie even got to come along.  Turns out, he’s a great traveller. Would walk for miles and never complain.   Ezra did some busking with Canadian street musicians (see him on instagram.com/ezdrumsnyc) and Zoe jumped on a huge zip line; taking a few years off my life while I just watched helplessly from below.  Oh Canada!  I miss it already.

When Zoe started this theater camp, I’m not sure she was as thrilled with it as she was last year.  But little by little she made more friends, got a key role as a mischievous moth, and stole the show with her onstage cartwheels.  In the end she made a few new friends, and got over her stage fright !

I’m going to miss these summer weekends where our friends ‘fancy up’ an old, worn picnic table, eat from a vintage truck that produces pizza (even GF for Zoe!), and then we swim as the sun is setting.  We do have a few more weeks left so ..  perhaps we will do it again? I hope so!  What are you up to this weekend?

How is everyone’s summer going?  Now that Ezra’s big event is over, the summer feels like one great big exhale.  The kids have camps by day but otherwise we’ve had hot and steamy (or sometimes cool and breezy) party nights in crammed urban backyards with friends.

OR lemonade stands and trips to Corona Ice King by day ..

OR more evening fun in the way of outdoor movies in a neighbor’s yard (LOVE Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!)

What have YOU been up to ?  As always – it’s all going by so quickly as summer does:

Need I say more?  Every year Ezra considers this akin to Channukah or Christmas;  a day at the Javitz Center to see new car ideas.  Now even Zoe is getting involved! And of course we had to stop and see the exterior of the new ‘Vessel’ building in Hudson Yards along the way:

I’m not gonna lie, it has taken YEARS to get Zoe ‘into’ the ballet or dance.  She’s just now mature enough to enjoy it, and she even lasted through all 2 and a half hours of Peck and Copland’s “Rodeo” – which was a lot of fun!  The Second Movement was my favorite part,  and is included as a video at the end of this post.  Enjoy!

It’s great to have a husband who is a far better photographer than myself, no?  The pix below were taken by E and Z’s dad, and show my kids’ obsession with the public scooter system in DC!  They couldn’t get enough of riding these things around.  We caught the last of the Hirschhorn “Pulse” exhibit before it came down, as well as the new(ish)  ‘Obama portraits’ at the National Portrait Gallery.  And of course Zoe insisted on a trip to the zoo – since she’s never seen a panda in person (or forgot that she had seen some in this same zoo when she was about 3-4 ys old).
