Le Cesine - Rare family outing!

Since the cave-man has worked in his hotel every weekend since forever, we rarely have had the pleasure of Sunday outings... now we can!!! =)

With Minerva feverish, and two cars (we don't fit in one anymore) we took off to the Cesine national park where the local WWF had organized some gathering...

We had five Nikons and one video camera with us... these are my photos! :


This is what the kids were photograghing: ;)

The party afterwards!

We had invited some very dear friends for a lovely buffet after the church function and loads of good food and wine!
Salmon: Heaps and heaps of gravad lax which we had prepared two days before, everyone LOVED it!

The salads: lentil and goat's cheese, pasta with pesto and oven-rosted tomatoes, bulghur and feta and saffron-scented chicken pilaf... there was also a wonderful coleslaw but no photo!

And flourless choclatecake, strawberries, whipped cream

and a fruitcake!

La Prima Communione

Sunday May 16th Minerva had her first communion...

Getting prepared with the help of Aurora,

Hair done by Aurora as well!

The painting started

   All the plants have been moved from the front of the house and from the terrace, and the painting           started on the 4th... let's see when they finish...

  And the plants invade half the street...


and the passage down to the garden..
