Can you believe it’s already been a full year?  I can’t.

We are always excited to get out to see Carl and Tricia and now… new Angelo.  His first birthday was amazing; with hours of food and fun in the pool.  I think Angelo enjoyed smashing his cake more than anything else going on … happy birthday delicious little man!

There’s probably no bigger feat than getting this whole entourage (that is my husband’s family and relatives) to enjoy the same activity and move around at the same place and same pace, yet they always seem to amaze me and do it so well.  Which is ideal for us since Ezra and Zoe love spending so much time with their cousins.  And on a hot day – gazing at cool pools filled with polar bears, penguins, riding the tram or carousel and feeding lorikeets is pretty much all we wanted to do.

Although I do still have some photos in my camera of waist-deep snow and kids playing with giant icicles, I haven’t had a moment to put them on here. We ran away to Florida to see the grandparents and cousins – and got a bit of sun finally! Here’s just a sneak peek of our Legoland trip from our iphones … more to come once the ‘getting back to school’ dust settles:

This past weekend we visited cousins Paul and Sophia in Massachusetts. We celebrate Chanukah in our home – but can visit their house to see a little Christmas spirit if we need to. Their mom loves to decorate every corner with Christmas stuff and Zoe got her first real taste of living with a tree in the house! Ezra of course loved the electric train that circled underneath the tree, and all the relatives came by with more presents for the last days of Chanukah. Ezra got an electric scooter, Zoe got ballet slippers and a princess Play doh set. As much as the gifts were exciting, I honestly think Ezra and Zoe enjoyed seeing their cousins (and their dogs) more than anything. I do know they are happy to NOT have an ‘elf on a shelf‘ watching their every move this season – creepy!
