Pigeons and playgrounds

The highlights of the big city, for our country boys, are -

Conducting the pigeons:



Playing in really cool Central Park playgrounds:

The Natural History Museum:
The subway:

Bagels with a 'shmear", "uncle" Lake, and good pizza were exciting, as was having our pictures taken by Uncle Damien, who is a photographer at Newsweek magazine.


The guys weren't so keen about the many blocks we walked, nor the end-of-winter winds. But now we are in NJ, with Damien and Stacy and their (new to us) baby, Henry. Henry greeted us with huge giggles and smiles as we came in last night. We are all in baby-love again.

does not matter which country , culture or even age kids love herding pigeons even when they get a chance to do it more often , all I used to want to do was get away before one of the bu??? shared yesterdays dinner with me while the kids thought we should stay longer

You WILL stop in Zabar's right? On Broadway around 82 street on the west side of the street. Nothing but the best of everything to eat or to make eats with.

I love Zabar's! We passed it and I was telling the kids about it. Maybe we'll visit next time we are in the upper west side. you could spend your whole month's income in there just on cool stuff for brunch.

Since moving away from the city, I am amazed at how much my kids (especially D.) love pigeons. Those shots are great. You might know this, but pigeons are amazingly attentive parents, they practice attachment parenting hee hee, which is why you rarely see baby pigeons.

Jessica, I did not know that about the pigeons. Wonderful information!
