Ahhh, the Italian Riviera. A "bar" on the sand, umbrellas and chairs for comfort. The water was so warm and the kids collected rocks. Yes, they came home with us too.
We had a terrific time with my wonderful friends. Irene and Gianna were so hospitable and made our stay so "Italian" and memorable. We stayed with them over looking the blue ocean and ate breakfast on the terrace every morning.

Day at the Beach

It is the begining of Easter Break and we drove along the beach.  It was a perfect day I must say.  We first stopped in Del Mar and found a great beach with low tide-perfect for finding shells and rocks of all sorts.    

Wild Tomatoes

We love to have tomatoes growing in our court yard.  This time they seemed to take forever to turn red ripe.  We waited and watched until they were ready to eat.  Denny my garden boy loves to eat them off the vine!  Here are some we collected and shortly after I made a yummy salad with them.

Here are some photos from Thanksgiving.  We had wonderful food and company.  The only thing missing was more family.  Denny and Hailey set the table, Wally and Natalia brought the delicious mashed potatoes, Dad and I both made stuffing(his was a bit better than mine) and he made the turkey too.  We also ate a roast and pies with fresh whipped cream!     

Hailey  loved her soccer season too.  She was my little slide tackle girl on the field.  Even though it got hectic some Saturdays, with both games at the same time,  I think we'll all do it again next season.

Champion Soccer Boys

The boys team had a great undefeated season.  Their coach on the left was really the best coach. Denny loves soccer now, and became one of the best on the team.    I love his new white cleats.  We called him Elvis the last game!

My little tennis Winner

It was an exciting weekend watching Denny play tennis.  It was single elimination, and Denny smashed his his way thru the finals.    He played beautiful and aggressive.
