“Daddy is not a jungle gym!” I should know better than to play Medeski, Martin & Wood just before bedtime. The kids were all dancing to the funky groove and before I knew it, climbing all over me. It took awhile to calm them down for bed – too much fun!
The resemblance of my daughter to my sister is striking.
A banner weekend for weather which we took advantage of by heading out early to get a table at our favorite Cafe at Rosemont where we met up with our friends and their kids. After a Papaya & Brie omlet and other goodies, we spend a lazy afternoon in New Hope and Lambertville skipping stones in the canal and riding the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad
Tyler & Ken-chan hamming it up for the cameraman. Everyone had a great time.
Yesterday was Tyler’s 4th birthday so we took him to his favorite place, Joe’s Crab Shack down on Route One. He loves the fact that they play music and dance there so he was really pleased when the staff came out to sing him “Happy Birthday” He’s been talking about it all day.
Today was an art day. Morning took us to the Princeton Museum of Art where a kind an patient woman taught a collection of 5 & 6 year olds about perspective. We later sneaked out to see the Monets and the Egyptian mummy in the basement. Later we went to the Grounds for Sculpture where we enjoyed the interactive bucket playing of Billy Jonas who taught us how to give ourselves a “square of applause” and that the “opposite of a rectange is a tangled wreck.” Later, we walked the ground and wondered at the beautiful glass sculpture of Dale Chihuly whose organic forms prompted Tyler to invent a new word, “squoobly” which I think fits Chihuly’s images just fine.
