Ezra has been taking drum lessons around here lately, and I’ve realized that I love the colors under the train tracks and the Sesame Street style stoops on houses!  It’s really taking me back to scenes of Sesame Street from the 70s, but with all the new high-rises and graffiti in the mix – it’s something new.   What does it remind you of?

In our old neighborhood of Long Island City there’s a new little cafe… for humans and pets alike!  We love sipping hot chocolate at Chateau Le Woof and watching Louie make new friends (below is Frankie).  The park across the street gets super muddy as the weather warms so this is a perfect spot for dry paws.

This little lady and her crazy upper body strength … she’s gone from gymnastics to rock climbing effortlessly!  I love her drive to get higher than anyone else.  Go Zo!

My husband and Ezra are taking ukulele lessons on Saturday now. According to my husband this is the perfect little instrument for tiny hands, and Ezra loves it. He rocks out like a Hawaiin rock star.

What a great use of unused space, right? Take all the rooftops of the city, and imagine how much you could grow! We visited Brooklyn Grange‘s Queens location – the flagship farm on Northern Blvd – which is just a short distance from our home.

The kids loved searching for mint and other herbs (a challenge the farm stand attendant put them to as soon as they got to the roof). We happened to be there when a little ‘end of the farm apprentice season’ celebration was going on .. and watched chefs put together lunch in a ‘paleo-diet theme’, and Ezra loved studying how a DJ scratches a record.
