Need I say more?  Every year Ezra considers this akin to Channukah or Christmas;  a day at the Javitz Center to see new car ideas.  Now even Zoe is getting involved! And of course we had to stop and see the exterior of the new ‘Vessel’ building in Hudson Yards along the way:

I’m not gonna lie, it has taken YEARS to get Zoe ‘into’ the ballet or dance.  She’s just now mature enough to enjoy it, and she even lasted through all 2 and a half hours of Peck and Copland’s “Rodeo” – which was a lot of fun!  The Second Movement was my favorite part,  and is included as a video at the end of this post.  Enjoy!

Before I had a week of work here, we spent some weekend time romping at the new District Wharf, and around this pretty city while spring was in full bloom!

Wow it’s already spring, and there’s been so much improvement in everything.  Zoe’s splits and back walkovers are so sharp after a whole winter of practice, and Ezra’s band is sounding so wise and weathered already .  And clearly the move into the season of more light and flowers is making it all seem like we are wrapping up the school year already (not so fast, still another quarter of grades to go.. but close?)  Here’s Zoe at her gymnastics competition this Saturday – she did great!

Overall it’s been a fairly mild winter.  I am just finally getting to blog these pretty pix of Cornwall, CT .   We were surprised to wake to a snowstorm after a week of 50 degree weather in the city.  The kids had only one snow day off from school this year – and it felt as if they had a snowball fight in the morning, and then a melted yard by afternoon.  In a sense I am happy to see hyacinth and tulip buds already emerging in our front yard… but this day in the snow was definitely a peaceful and fun one:  IMG_4695IMG_4709IMG_4710IMG_4711IMG_4713

We have a thing for bird watching, and this was a perfect time of year to catch young chicks springing up in the low brush around the water. We also saw gators, iguanas and more sunshine than we could fit in our suitcases for the flight home. Now with snow coming our way, I wish I could be back there:

A couple of weekends ago we got to run away to Florida to see Bubby and the grandparents. We couldn’t have had better timing – the northeast was getting hit with freezing temperatures and even our time-oblivious kids were feeling as if the winter was going on forever. Best of all, we got to see my dear friend Cleveland get married in Miami, as well as the Design District which we loved! So much to enjoy with the eyes and the stomach (great food and tacos everywhere!) I’m already wishing I could get back there, soon.
