Weekend stuffs

It’s been a reflective weekend, with everything that’s happening in the world around us. It seems irrelevant to write about adventures with my children, when I can’t read the news without feeling rage and sadness. When I can’t turn on the news in fear of my children overhearing the words or seeing the images.

But as it is, when you have young children who know nothing other than what’s going on in their immediate little worlds, our lives continue. They are a beautiful reason to not get lost in the bad and to side with the good, to seek out the good. To focus on it, to think it, to live it.

It was a low-key weekend with lots of bike riding and donuts…

…and dinner at Brooklyn Crab, our favorite place.

Julian has really gotten into pencil drawing, and it’s adorable.

Naturally, his focus is on trains, busses, and boats. Featured here are the Seastreak, the M34, M4, and J train.

On Sunday evening we took the boys to see Disney on Ice at Barclay’s Center. Holy commercialism! Buy this! Buy that! We didn’t go for any of the light-up wands or Olaf hats, but we did enjoy some overpriced pretzels and beer.

More importantly, the boys loved every second of it. This was Arthur’s face throughout:

His favorite parts were Mickey Mouse and Frozen. Julian loved it all, but Ana & Elsa were clearly his favorite, too.

It was lovely to see them both so happy – and that’s what matters.
