I’m trying to take a new approach to winter: if you can’t beat it, join it!  It was hella cold on Thanksgiving – like 8 degrees where we were in Connecticut.  But I figured out if I had all the right warm clothing on, a refreshing walk in the snow can really clear your head. The kids loved following a frozen stream and then whittling their found branches into walking sticks.

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:

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:

And of course my husband has another great show up, and I help him out when we don’t have a ladder (this pix caught by bystander Ezra) :

Hope you are having a fun late winter as well!

We made a little getaway during the beginning of Feb break. It was cold, but when bundled up .. the beaches in East Chatham and Welfleet area is the best place to be in the middle of winter! And even though many of the seasonal restaurants were closed, P Town always has great art everywhere. We ate at our favorite place The Canteen again (open year round!), and as always – the crispy spicy Brussels sprouts did not disappoint. Even Louie loves Cape Cod now!

(thank you Auntie Betty for hosting!)

My little muffin chose to do a quiet weekend in the country, playing with a friend’s cats (and Louie) for her long MLK weekend birthday.  She has a new interest in karaoke and singing, so we added a mic to the scene and had a lot of fun.  Today is really officially her birthday, and she is toting 20 gluten free cupcakes to school to celebrate with classmates (and may even convince us to have a 3rd party with ‘the Hazels’ as well).

I am so proud of this fearless, funny, constantly surprising little gal who is growing too fast!  We love you Zoe!

Even though the temps were warm, we could do a few wintery NYC things like ice skating in Bryant Park.  A February-break staycation is always fun when you get to catch up on city outings like this, and the rink wasn’t even crowded with tourists shockingly!

Well it’s been a mild winter so far, and today the temps are in the 60s – which I’m kind of digging.  But tomorrow we are meant to have a snow day off… will it happen?  Will we have another day like the one shown below.. which was back in the beginning of January and blew away within a day?  Or will it linger?  And I wonder how our new friend Louie will cope with snow –

With all that’s been going on here, I’ve been slow to put photos on the blog (sorry, neglected you again blog!) A couple of weekends ago we had a night of snow that trapped us behind a couple feet building up on our back door. After a LOT of shoveling, the kids got out and ran around a winter wonderland of an alley. It all melted quickly but it’s now flurrying again! Hope your weekend is white – or at least wonderful – too.
