Remember when we ran into this couple getting married at The Met Museum? Well they decided to have a wedding party (years later) this past weekend at the lake. What a pretty location and amazing time we had! Our toes were in the water, lights twinkling over tables on the dock, and I got to tie a lot of nature on to vases (with twine) to decorate – and everyone made a dish to share (including that huge pile of yummy cupcakes.) What an amazing start to summer.

We hung out in Cornwall CT again with friends, and my boys were inspired to jump into the lake on New Year’s Day. I don’t quite understand this tradition, but they like it (and my husband has done the Polar Bear Club at Coney Island before so .. this one is more manageable for the kids it seems).

I’m not really a resolution person, but some things came to mind that I’d like to try to practice this year (no pressure, I’ll just try!)

– remember what great “partners in crime” me and my husband are to each other
– stop cleaning the house so much!
– have more dinner parties cuz hey, they’re fun
– don’t bark at the kids; no sense in making their day stink too..
– have patience
– stop eating and drinking things that just taste ‘eh’. If it’s scrumptious, then pig out and enjoy.

Here are some Jan 1 moments via our instagram feed:

Aside from loving books, Transformers and cars .. he now loves putting his speed boat in the lake at Central Park. He did some boat racing with grandma and grandpa a couple of birthdays ago, remember? The boy loves his boats. (Thank you Bubby for the gift!)

I am posting tonight and tomorrow morning in-between a flurry of graduations this week. Ezra has a graduation ceremony and show on Friday, and Zoe’s was earlier this week. When did this girl get so big? With her own birthday and graduation parties to go to .. I barely recognize this social little bunny –

Fun outdoor art, collecting bugs, toes in grass, eating outdoors with friends and warm summer breezes: these are a few of my favorite things!

I can’t believe how lush and green this lake got in just a matter of two weeks. Ezra and Brad finally got to play with a Solar UFO Balloon that we got for the holidays, and Zoe met a couple of new sister girlfriends. And Ezra learned to kayak on his own! I know, a little scary.. but a mom has to let kids do these things on their own little by little… right? (Gulp!)
