When the weather gets this cold, there’s nothing better than something hot and brothy. After Sunday School we love exploring the food shops around Flushing’s Chinatown and someone at our synagogue recommended Sentosa. What a find! Their shrimp and green bean dish along with noodles in broth is amazing, and we loved the ‘Indian pancake’ in a chicken coconut broth. I’m already having a craving for more!

We stepped out to DUMBO again and enjoyed the last of the longer days before dusk settled in … the kids still love running around the glass enclosed carousel and climbing on the sculpture around Brooklyn Waterfront Park. But frankly the temps got too cold to hang outdoors for much longer and we finally put the fireplace to good use again! Note that we moved the furniture around so that our toes would get the heat…

I had my kiddos back with me for only a week – but I love when we can slowly and calmly take the subway into the city, and if the park is quiet we have the best laid back experience of the city. Ezra loves watching the boats (and now wants a remote controlled boat for his birthday!) Zoe has taken to sketching while in her stroller, and of course we always love finding strange new (fuzzy) nature in Central Park. And we can’t leave this area of the park without crawling all over Alice and her Wonderland folks first.

.. and playing with the bull. We even stumbled upon the first paved street in ‘New Amsterdam’ called Stone Street that I didn’t even know existed! Must explore some more now that spring is on… especially the Frances Tavern Museum and Battery Park City playgrounds!

The weather was unseasonably warm during the beginning of this week … all the way up to near 70 degrees! As I drove back from Boston I saw people in Central Park wearing only tee shirts and shorts – in late December. We decided it would be a perfect balmy night to see the crazy over-the-top holiday lights in the Dyker Heights section of Brooklyn. The light show didn’t disappoint and for the first time we could get out of the car and walk around, without freezing.

Hope you are enjoying your week everyone!

I think we are. But we were happy to tag along with our friends this past Sunday – to see the New York Botanical Garden’s Haunted Garden. Lots of crazy ideas here for how to carve (or stack) your pumpkins into nifty sculptures. We have 2 last pumpkins to carve/paint or stick with these cool decorators that Bubby found… and then it’s over. Pumpkins – prepare to become soup!

I’ve always wanted to bring my kids to this Lincoln Center event .. and now they are old enough to enjoy it. This weekend Ezra was a perfect gentleman and danced with his gal Lea – who was anxious to learn the tango. They started with lessons for merengue, then a line dance or two, and by the time the tango lesson came around Ezra was spent. After lessons the kids got to watch the kids from Dancing Classrooms do their thing:
