Jumping, Up And Sideways







Ash's daycare sings a daily morning song where each of the tots get to jump up and down while the rest shout their name. We've quasi-adopted this into our own "routine" where whenever we need Ash to refocus his attention we play the jump up and down game. It goes like this: Ashton Ashton jump up and down, jump up and down, jump up and down, Ashton Ashton jump up and down and SIT RIGHT DOWN! Ash jumps up and down, daddy jumps up and down, mommy jumps up and down, sometimes the horsies jump up and down, and Owen almost always jumps up and down, albeit remotely. Damn living in the country and being far away from his Brooklyn buddy. Until weekends like this...

This weekend we were in the city and jumped up and down with all of our favorites. Dinner with Owen Friday, Brunch with Baby Edie Saturday, Botanical gardens with Cloverlandfarm Sunday afternoon and classical music and wine bar dinner with Mark and Jax Sunday evening. Needless to say by the time Sunday evening came around we were all performing more of a sway back and forth performance than jump up and down. We over here are knackered. And just between you and me, I'll dig being city-knackered over country-jumping any day, but that's just me, or us, or me and us, or as we put it walking down Flatbush Ave today: A pretty freakin great version of livin life.

PS: The Cloverlandfarm folks are the talent behind many of the above pics, huge props to our BK Photogs!
