This winter has left us a little stir crazy.  For a while there it seemed like our kids were starting to refuse to go out and about with us. Loving the new house and alley so much, they wanted to stick around at home more.  But then suddenly this weekend it was actually Ezra who had a strong desire to go back to my favorite museum – the MoMA!  HE actually begged us to go.  And so we did .. and enjoyed a pop art show of 60s art and culture, and Ezra even pointed out Starry Night as one he remembered as his favorite.  I guess his art classes at school are paying off..?

And he even had a trip to Carnegie Hall (thank you to the Seows) to see a chamber orchestra, and enjoyed it.  Some city culture sinking in perhaps?

It’s always nice to come home from traveling around to other places, and get to visit some famous places in Queens. One such place is Louis Armstrong’s house just several blocks from us in Corona Queens.

The house tour is great as well — we particularly loved the blue kitchen with appliances hidden in the counter tops!
