I’ve been depressed that August is drawing to a close. I can’t believe how quickly this summer is passing – and kids are going to be in school again soon. Although honestly it’s almost better to have them in school while we work on our new house. I’m afraid they’ve seen wayyyyyy too much of Home Depot this summer.

In these last weeks we’ve been trying to see more of friends (who are now out of day camp). A little game of Twister, a trip to South Street Seaport. We went to the Imagination Playground downtown, where kids are encouraged to use giant blue foamy blocks to create something together. I wish school could be like this for the kids .. instead of books and sitting still, some time to work in teams and create something. At least we can get them to this once in awhile – while the weather is still nice.

While Ezra and Zoe were away at ‘grandma and grandpa camp’ – my husband and I got to go on a series of date nights. (I also got to sleep 8 hours uninterrupted for the first time in 7 years, we saw The Book of Mormon on Broadway .. what an amazing week!)

One night we stumbled into the free outdoor movie fest that comes with Smorgasbar at South Street Seaport on Wednesday nights this summer. (If you remember we went to Smorgasburg last summer.. this smaller ‘bar’ version accommodates the hungry moviegoers.) Best of all, the movie being shown was ‘GhostBusters’ and a group of fans came dressed as Ghostbusters. These guys were taking their roles seriously – reciting all the lines to the movie and carrying ghost-busting packs with blinking light parts that seemed to work!

Even though we found ourselves there in the middle of a heat wave, the breeze off the water at South Street Seaport is INCREDIBLE in the summer – and the lobster rolls via Smorgasbar made the night complete.

Hand made cards, flowers and grilling+chilling at the new picnic peninsula on Pier 5 in Brooklyn. It was a perfect day.
