We had a quiet and picturesque drive upstate on Thanksgiving morning – with just a slight snow shower that coated the terrain on most of the way. See some shots below of our making name tags for the table with cousin Jake, grandma reading stories and siblings playing in snow – and we got to go here again too!

and of course that means a trip to Strong Museum! Remember this amazing place? When the weather gets fussy, it’s a great place for the kids to spend HOURS playing (photos courtesy of Karen Kessler!). Hey isn’t that a scene from Sesame Street where Zoe is standing? I thought that was here in Queens!:

Although I do still have some photos in my camera of waist-deep snow and kids playing with giant icicles, I haven’t had a moment to put them on here. We ran away to Florida to see the grandparents and cousins – and got a bit of sun finally! Here’s just a sneak peek of our Legoland trip from our iphones … more to come once the ‘getting back to school’ dust settles:

We ducked away to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for a bit. A little snow, a little fireplace, grandparents and cousins… we have more adventures to share soon.

We surprised grandma and made an impromptu visit to the Rochester NY area for her birthday. The kids were thrilled to wake up to her garden again – this time blanketed in autumn leaves – and Zoe even found some lavender lingering..

I am back to work and somewhat crazed … and for a first time in awhile I find myself lagging on doing some blog posts. This is one that I’ve been meaning to post – before the leaves turn color and this summery set of photos looks dated and obsolete. For Ezra’s birthday we often ask his grandparents to give him an ‘experience’ (since NYC apartments can barely fit important things, let alone an excess of toys from well meaning relatives.) For Ezra’s birthday his grandparents gave him a late summer gift – and took him to rent a remote controlled sail boat at Central Park. I’ve always wanted to do this with him; a peaceful park activity that taught him ‘wind power’ and reminded us of a fun scene in the Stuart Little movie (where Stuart races a boat in the same location.)
The weather here is breezy and perfect – we hope it is where you are too! Have a good weekend.
