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.

One very cold day we made a trip back to Roosevelt Island to swim in their indoor pool, and then remembered that there was a new memorial on the island to check out! I remember when this old building (former Smallpox Hospital) at the end of the island was covered in moss and overgrowth. Now that this end of the island is cleared out for FDR’s Memorial, it’s easier to view the old hospital again. From the Memorial we got a great vantage point of the city AND of Queens (note that Pepsi sign that we usually are on the other side of!)

Whenever we are a little bored it is easy enough for us to visit a skinny little island that lies between Manhattan and Queens. Best of all, it has a little tram that is the most exciting mode of transportation for the under 6 year old set. We took a ride on it and viewed some busy streets of Manhattan. Then we rode back to Roosevelt island and stopped for ice cream – enjoying the plentiful fields of grass there.
