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:

Well it was time again for the ‘Trotto Holiday roundup’ as we’ve done in years past. My kids got gifts in Chanukah wrap paper and their cousins decked out in red and green and tore open gifts in Santa paper. The food was delicious and the company was great. And our newest addition to it all – Angelo – was surprisingly chill for a tiny guy at the table. He even tried to keep up to conversation.

There’s probably no bigger feat than getting this whole entourage (that is my husband’s family and relatives) to enjoy the same activity and move around at the same place and same pace, yet they always seem to amaze me and do it so well. Which is ideal for us since Ezra and Zoe love spending so much time with their cousins. And on a hot day – gazing at cool pools filled with polar bears, penguins, riding the tram or carousel and feeding lorikeets is pretty much all we wanted to do.

Sorry again that I’ve lagged in posting photos but this past April Spring break week has been so full of activity, my camera and phone were back burnered.
We spent a lovely first 2 seders with cousins Alison and Stella (remember they came to see US here?) Kansas City is amazing! I love the Nelson Atkins Art Museum (although it was so warm outside we stayed with the Claes Oldenburg sculptures outdoors) and we had a lovely 2nd night seder outdoors – which I always love. (It happened before a few years ago in Maryland!) More pix of the Kansas City Zoo are to come..
A couple weekends ago we were back in the Boston suburbs and on ATVs again. Clearly I am lagging a bit on posting photos .. but this springy weekend was one that I couldn’t pass up sharing with everyone. What are YOU up to this weekend?
Have a lovely one!

We made a long and crazy road trip to Rochester – where the weather was balmy enough for a day (or 2) to hang in the hot tub. Cousin soup! It was a weekend of hiking and playing in the woods, and of course AMAZING FOOD and performances. Zoe cried when we headed home because she already misses all her big cousins wanting to carry her everywhere!
