Via our Instagram feed…if you haven’t already seen it:

We had a shockingly warm day in late Feb that had us hopeful – grilling outdoors mid-winter is pretty great:

-But then there was more of this lovely view from our front window, happening more frequently now:

Relying on the goings on in our hood to entertain the kids, like this super fun ‘Drag Queen Story Hour‘ that packed the house at the local library:

Well yes, we are already back at it.  This summer really did just fly by and now we are back to the grind again.  Ezra is entering middle school/6th grade and Zoe is loving 2nd grade.  I can’t believe how quickly these kiddos are growing … can you?

Little Zoe is proving to be quite the gymnast.  We finally got her to a gymnastic class after getting worried that she’d knock over furniture at home – and she was given an award at the end of all the sessions for being such a great listener.  I think she looks pretty dang proud in these photos, doesn’t she?  And we are mighty proud of her too:



so fearless – I hope she never loses this!

This is just a quick round up of some photos we have on instagram and that were stuck in my camera in general.  More blog posts coming soon!

This is how Jackson Heights does a ‘Family Day’ – with Mr Met of course, and NDI.

Then Zoe (in the brown dress in front) and Ezra (in blue top and plaid shorts behind the gal in denim) joined in on the fun.. Zoe and Ezra have some pretty great ‘spaghetti arms’ and a fabulous finish! Broadway, here we come! (to see larger, click on the link to vimeo here.)

Meeting new neighbors in our alley has been great, but even more enriching when you discover there are some artist dads on the block! Local dad and artist Nitin Mukul had his show at the Consulate General of India, NYC – allowing us not only to view his work, but to hang at the Consulate at the same time. And we thought his paintings looked great in his home… look at them in this space!

We had a lot of friends over, and yet a basically mellow weekend. How about you?
(Below – Zoe and BFFs Hazel and Mia on a train to Manhattan for her tea non-party, Ezra arranged all her dolls for a slumber party on the floor that night, she can’t get enough of her birthday gifts, and Ezra making eggs for all of us in the a.m.)
