So, we don’t have a backyard, but the trade off has other advantages, like fireworks, and getting to fall asleep watching the rooftop fireworks from bed :) …

"The Dachshund 5 makes Bobsleds under tremendous heat and pressure. That’s why all my bobsleds have great air conditioning!"

Take your child to work day @ RGA is a full on production

H got to make a squishy circuit rocket ship. (Also note wanted to build a robot police officer…. what could possibly go wrong there ?!?!…. ). Stepped on digital responsive flooring, declared his NEED to make a product (that’s the only brief I have… Just…”a product”). And got chased by a cat on a green screen!

Pretty sweet!

Happy Fathers Day!

We spent the day on Governors Island, checking out the new playground and renting a surrey for a quick island excursion. Pedaling these guys is hard work…

Strawberry Picking 2014!

This year we were joined by Aunt E. & Paul who brought special berry picking buckets for all. And we filled em to the top!

Theo completely ignored the “Don’t eat the berries while you pick” rule. Nothing he picked made it to a basket, or a bucket. But rules were made to be broken! (We need to work on hiding the evidence a little better though… Maybe?)

Harold picked tons of berries and filled up almost the whole flat, he also had fun at the bouncy house, eating cake and chaperoning his brother on the wagon ride.

A good time was had by all! We’ll see you in fall for Apple picking!

Theo may have slept through most of touch a truck but he got to have fun anyway. Because it was 80 and sunny he got to play in the water. Big brother made sure to press the on button over and over and over again to make sure he got good and wet. Let’s just say, backup clothing was required all around.

Kim Ima who runs the Treats Truck is amazing. She clearly loves what she does and loves kids. Harold loves going to her restaurant. He was so psyched to see her actual truck (and get a favorite treat :) — Vanilla Cupcake, Rainbow Sprinkles)  and she invited him in to see her truck. Shyness and a touch of star struck, H declined. But I really love that she’s here, and recognized him and was so inviting.

Legoland, not a bad place to spend a rainy cold afternoon.

SCIENCE !! H is a science kid. Theo is just generally enthusiastic about any place that isn’t home, where he might get to chase and run and climb and explore… I’m not really sure what you do with a five year old boy without the museum of natural history, but happy that we don’t have to find out.
