Busy busy busy

Last week has been pretty busy. Good busy though. Sasha got sick on Thursday, the poor kid, kept pointing at her neck and saying that her throat hurt! Thankfully, it turned out to be nothing serious, and after staying home for a couple of days, she seemed much better. On Saturday, she and Z went to the beach while I got to sleep in (they had a fabulous time together, though there are no pictures to prove it, hmm...) I had a brunch date with some friends of mine at Max Brenner (oh, my gosh, this place is like heaven!) Then we went to Z's coworker's BBQ which was a blast! Sunday was my cousin's birthday, so we had a dinner and desserts in the city. Monday was nice and relaxing since Sasha's in school, so I worked on some projects of mine. Today, we went to Sasha's music class in the city, stopped by Auntie Anna's to say hi, then had a coffee (and cookie) date with Z. Now, Sasha's napping as I'm catching up on things.
Oh, and did I mention the packing? Sigh, I hate packing. We're going to upstate for a week and a half, and we need a lot of things! I gotta say, the packing isn't going too horribly though, it's just that if I could I'd rather not do it at all ;)
And some pictures to compensate for the wordiness of this post:
Uh-oh, we're in trouble!

Children's Museum

Sasha and I took a little trip to the Children's Museum. It was loads of fun, Sasha got to play with the water table and in a giant sand box, see fish and turtles, and even touch a snake! We really should've gotten there a bit earlier, since all the school groups were there later, but we had a blast. In fact, Sasha was so exhausted, she fell asleep on the bus (man, I really need to learn to drive!)

Sasha wanted to be a bus driver!

Happy Father's Day!

Today, we celebrate our fathers. It's a little cheesy, and, surely, you can call up your dad and tell him how much you love him and how much he means to you whenever you feel like it, but it's also nice to have an extra day dedicated specifically to this. And I feel so incredibly lucky to have my amazing dad! And now, I feel so lucky and so happy that Sasha has an amazing dad as well - I take some of the credit for that, since I did pick him after all ;)...
We usually don't do anything grand or fabulous, but we like to hang out - today, we headed to Z's parents' house for a barbeque and had such a wonderful time with both his and my parents!

Wishing all the wonderful dads out there a happy Father's Day filled with love and warmth!!

Soccer practice

On hot sunny evenings, we like to go to a park nearby and have dinner there. Last night, we decided to add a little soccer practice to the evening. It went quite well, Sasha might just become a big soccer star one day - she had a blast!

New York Aquarium

This afternoon, we met up with some friends of ours and headed to the aquarium. The kids loved it and kept asking to see "more fishies". You should've heard them squealing in delight, trying to poke the fish through the glass!

We saw Happy Feet in 4D, Sasha tolerated the glasses for a total of 4 minutes: as soon as the movie started, she ripped them off and climbed onto my lap, where she spent the rest of the movie, covering her ears with her hands!

And at the end of the day, naturally, we had some ice cream. The girls thoroughly enjoyed it!

Long birthday celebration

I had a  very very long birthday celebration this year. Not that I'm complaining. Although Z did say on Sunday night that he's quite tired and would like a break.
Thursday, I was in the city most of the day, and had a lovely lunch with Z, followed by a Chinese takeout picnic in our living room. Friday, we went to see How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying - it was fantastic!! People, go see it! It was hilarious, beautifully made, the songs were excellent, the jokes - witty. And Daniel Radcliffe was amazingly good - and the guy can sing!!

On Saturday, we went to Beer Garden with some of our friends - which was quite loud and dark, but really fun!

And on Sunday, to round up our long celebrations, we had dinner with family at a cute little Greek place here in Brooklyn.

Man, that was long. The post and the birthday itself. Sorry for the picture overload, I'll be sure to post a cute kiddo-pictures-post to compensate for these soon ;)
