Super Slam Ball

Maya had her first game today of Super Slam Ball-otherwise known as super simple t-ball. She was very trepidatious at first-she kept telling us how she needed a different mitt (Dora was way too baby) and that she didn't know how to play the game, asking us where the balls were and generally gluing herself to the side of our legs. When the game started she had an awesome hit..then proceeded to stand where she was and watch everyone run around and then she tried to run to second base. Luckily, it was the first time for most kids and there were no outs or strikes, etc. By the end of the game she was really enjoying herself and we got to see a competitive side we haven't seen before...

Happy Birthday Zoe!

Zoe turned two today! She had a great day of presents, bagel, music class, lunch with friends, not napping, playing at home and dinner and cake at Pietanza.

Easter Egg Roll 2011

For the fourth year in a row we braved the crowds (and for the second year, the heat) and headed to the Annual Easter Egg Roll. We basically do it for the photo opp and the wooden egg. Luckily this year we were able to wait in the shade to enter (about 45 minutes). Maya and Zoe were very patient (with the help of my iPhone!).

Hoppy Easter!

Happy Easter! The Easter Bunny came to Baba's yard this morning (he's afraid of Ajax, so he sticks to her side of the compound)..

Zoe and Maya had a great time hunting for eggs (Zoe figured it out quite quickly):

Then they found (and loved) their Easter Baskets inside:

PS. I apologize for the lack of "Easter outfits". It takes an act of Congress to make my children to get out of their pajamas!

Zoe's almost two!

Zoe turns two on Thursday, so a few weeks ago I had to snap a few shots for her birthday invitations!

March: Venezia!

A couple of weeks after we got back from Atlantis, Maya went on an awesome adventure. Jacket came down on a Wednesday afternoon, swooped her up, took her to NY where they met up with WaiPo and flew off to Venice (in business class, no less!). Maya was an excellent traveller and slept 7 hours on the plane. They got there and took lots of walks, saw lots of bridges and gondolas and ate a LOT of gelato. I left on Friday night and got there Saturday morning to spend a day and a half there and then fly Maya home-who was a great traveller on the way home too-probably better than me!

March: Atlantis

In the beginning of March, we decided to take an early spring break and head to Atlantis with our friends, Aimee & Matt and their daughters, Amelia and Ruby. We thought it would be a great idea to take a vacation with one of Maya's friends so that she would be entertained. It WAS a great idea! The girls had a blast and the adults did too.
