Remember when Zoe and I had our little date this past summer? Well we finally did a follow-through and sat down and had tea! Poor Zoe – with all that went on with Papa Paul this year, her 4th birthday was a little bit ignored. So while her dad and brother saw the new Lego movie (a huge hit with Ezra by the way, and he’s a tough critic!) – Zoe and I went back to Alice’s Tea Cup as a belated birthday treat. She got the full treatment this time: a set of fairy wings, fairy dust sprinkled on to her hair – the whole nine yards. Of course in the end she opted for the hot chocolate with fancy sprinkles on her whip cream and I WAS saddled with drinking the tea, but it was great tea!

Here she is poised to pick out the pinkest cupcake available – look at that excited and happy little face. Happy yummy belated birthday my little muffin:

We took Jake and Tali uptown to see the Museum of Natural History, and then got THE MOST AMAZING PIZZA EVER at Primo Pizza 84. I’m not kidding, this vegetarian pizza is even better than the pizza I’ve had in Naples, Italy! Phenomenal!

It’s beginning to feel a bit like spring here, finally. We tooled around with our scooters and had one of those glorious days watching the trees grow fuzzy – like they do when buds on branches start to bloom. The kids love seeing flowers on the trees outside of the Museum of Natural History, and got to frolic in a sandbox in Central Park. We made a short trek to Momofuku Milk Bar for ‘blueberry and cream cookies’ – and check out their ‘candy bar pie’ topped off with a pretzel! At dusk, the sea of yellow taxis against a dusky sky made me reminisce about summers when I use to live in Manhattan (and my nights would start where they now end – around 9 pm!)

While at the Museum of Natural History, we checked out the Hall of Gems. There’s also a Hall of Meteorites and a Hall of Minerals in this same area of the museum. I think the kids love this zone the most because they can actually touch some of the exhibit. Of course Ezra enjoys it because he got very into geodes this summer during our trip to Maine, and Zoe loves any gem that is pink or purple!

I can't stop touching the purple rock!
