Moments of the Month | February 2014

Variety would be a good word to describe our February.

We did all kinds of different things.  Partly because the weather changed like CRAZY on us.  And partly because we got on a plane for three hours and headed the heck out of here for three days.   Well, we actually sat on the runway in a snow storm for two hours before actually flying for three.  That’s OK.  It was totally worth it.

Iden kids have the most fun.  (And Iden grown-ups, too).

This kid is getting big.  How do I stop this?

An afternoon at The Cloisters and Fort Tryon Park.

Must remember that late lunches don’t work for this kid — he literally runs out of gas.  (We left to have an excellent lunch at the Cafe in the park, and then came back).

When we came back inside from the cold, my camera lens got all fogged up.  The boys thought this was awesome — positively ghostly — and played the part.

If I ever hesitate, please remind me that three days in Florida is TOTALLY worth it.  Thanks, Mimi and Pop!

Home again … time to work on a pinewood derby car in the garage.

My Instagram “memory” shows even more variety — lots of snow days and beautiful winter sunsets, a trip to Jazz at Lincoln Center to see Winton Marsalis, a trip to Tarrytown Music Hall to see (and play with) Mark O’Connor, and a roaring twenties party (with a photo booth!).   Watching the Olympics, cross-country skiing, writing poems, Broadway shows (“Once” with Kate, Alannah and Deirdre) and movies and movie classes and play practices, basketball and bass and train rides into the city.  Phew!  No wonder I’m exhausted all the time!
