Once again E and Z’s dad was hired to shoot a week of fun science events around the city, and we had grandma in to help with staying on top of things while parents were working like crazy.  The WSF had some great outdoor activities – like exploring the water life around our local park (Gantry), as well as an amazing Star Gazing event later in the evening in Brooklyn! I think we were wiped out after a whole day of activity but were happy we could show grandma the ropes on the WSF!

For Max’s birthday the ‘Leo boys’ took a fishing excursion to the great wide ocean off the coast of Brooklyn.  While they didn’t catch anything edible (and compassionately threw many back to the sea) they came home smelling like briny fisherman and had a great day in the sun..!  We couldn’t help but think my dad would’ve loved this trip;

We’ve had a fun and fortunate summer .. fortunate in that many of our friends have invited us to peaceful retreats to the country. And it couldn’t come at a better time since there’s constant noise and smells (and today crazy heat!) coming from the busy street below our city apartment! Etta and Audrey had us out to their grandparents’ house where the kids could run through grass, play on swings and fish at the VERY local pond. Ezra and Zoe couldn’t get enough of their plants and the garden, where Ezra invented ‘chocolate mint sandwiches’ (basically the leaves from the chocolate-mint plant folded into a triangle and eaten right there by the garden.) Audrey loves to wear her bunny ears and hop around – heck I love the ears too. And of course there was a session of s’more making at night – how could we go without one?

End of the summer, trying to play on the lake in the rain, Loren created a humongous paella, fishing, figs from Megan’s yard, and Zoe cannot seem to take her mind off that nest swing. She wants to swing in it all day! Her feet hanging out of the front… slays me. The level of cuteness is ridiculous.

After spending some time in Maine we travelled back down to Martha’s Vineyard. The kids loved the ferry ride and seeing their cousins again (see our previous outing with them here). We often woke to wild turkeys walking in the backyard, and the kids learned a bit about fishing – a hobby and tradition that Papa is happy we are keeping alive!

While in Portland we stopped by the Children’s Museum and Theater of Maine. Lots of info on whales, lumbering, camping, farming and lobster fishing. Obviously Ezra LOVED the area where he could pretend to fix a car and fill it with gas!

We spent the 4th of July with friends in Seaford Long Island. Zoe was excited to wear her patriotic dress and Ezra was happy to get out of the city heat.
The kids loved filling a trap with bread and catching killies which we then put back into the water. We even had a crab trap to try – and caught a crab although he very quickly walked sideways right out of the trap and to the edge of the pier, then jumped into the water as well!

Zoe finds a friend in an old Victorian doll:
