I love that the city put in these amazing cherry blossom trees on our block.  For one brief week in the spring we get trees full of pink flowers and then – bam – it’s like someone sneezes and they all fall off the trees all at once!  Nothing like a blanket of pink petals under your feel.  Even Louie is afraid to soil it.

Meanwhile Zoe is prepping to be a ‘Lost Boy’ in her school’s upcoming “Peter Pan” play.. we’ve been working on adding scraps of fur and twigs to her costume (but of course she wants it to be ‘glamorous’ at the same time).  I should add that Zoe has been studying to present ‘The Life of Coco Chanel’ to her class.  Check her out below – beret and French accent ready to go!  And we made a trip to Boston for cousin Sophia’s Holy Communion.  These girls and their heels!  Adorable..

Remember our hot chocolate outing from last year? Well we were out and about again in Soho and came across our favorite fancy hot chocolate shop, Marie Belle. Their hot chocolate is literally like drinking a chocolate bar that’s been melted down into a fancy tea cup. The kids love it and I love sitting under the chandeliers and pretending we are in Paris! Check out their Blue Box collection here – I can stare at these illustrations on chocolates all day.

We love summers for outings to Governor’s Island!

From July 13 through September 29 (weekends 10am–6:30pm), Governors Island hosts Fete Paradiso – a festival showcasing antique carousels from the late-19th and early-20th centuries. If you’re up for a workout, seek out the bicycle carousel. Built in the late 1800s, it’s one of only two in existence and you’ll work up a sweat (along with the other riders) getting it moving!

Have a great weekend.
