We spent the last August Sunday in Poggio Ferrato, at Chiara, Luca, Anna and Marta’s home. It was a special day, with the first picnic of Lorenzo and Bea, and with an amazing afternoon spent around their beautifull house, so full of toys. Thanks a lot for being so kind and so special with us. And thanks also do super nonna Carla and nonno Max.
We miss Davide a lot. He is a great friend, now living in Leuven, Belgium. He left from Pavia at the end of 2008, we saw him last time in 2012 (see here), so we were very happy to stay with him for pizza and beer. In fact he came back to Pavia for Briscola’s wedding, and we didn’t loose the occasion to see him again. Thnaks also to Marcello (coming from The Netherlands) and Fernando for staying with us.
Today, the last day before to come back to the office, we decided to visit the “The World of Dinosaurs“, a dinosaurs exhibition in the park of the castle of Piovera, not too far from Pavia. The exhibition was very impressive, and although there were a lot of mosquitos and it was too hot and wet, we really enjoyed it. And Lorenzo in paritcular was very excited.
Today, in the afternoon, we went at Ilaria’s and Michele’s place. Here Lorenzo enjoyed the great amount of Michele’s toys, and we had some fun. While Francesca and Ilaria went out for shopping (at Arese), we invited Marco and Michele for an easy dinner at our place. We prepared a more than decent “risotto con salsiccia e fagioli”), and the babies were very excited. At the end, a bit of TV and some milk for the younger helped reaching a more quiet atmosphere. Thanks for coming, and see you soon.
Dopo le tante pedalate con Lorenzo e Beatrice nei seggiolini, piano piano ci stiamo avvicinando a una nuova fase, quella in cui i due (in primis Lorenzo) pedaleranno autonomamente. Per ora il pigro Lorenzo non ha ancora abbandonato le rotelline, ma finalmente comincia a pedalare per la citta’. E la piccola Bea faticosamente lo segue col triciclo.
After many bike rides with both Lorenzo and Beatrice in their little seats, we are approaching a new phase of our life bike oriented. Lorenzo, still with thesmall wheels, is starting to ride across the city, and Bea try to follow him with the tryke.
Le vacanza dell’anno scorso (vedi qui) erano state molto belle, e pur non volendo fossilizzarci, almeno per un altro anno, coi bimbi piccoli, abbiamo deciso che Senigallia era un’ottima soluzione. L’anno scorso Bea cominciava a cercare di stare in piedi, e Lorenzo non era ancora uscito dal tunnel della gelosia. Quest’anno invece Bea cammina e corre felice, e Lorenzo e’ decisamente maturato. Come risultato le vacanze sono state ancora piu’ rilassanti dell’anno scorso. Abbiamo ritrovato alcuni amici, ne abbiamo conosciuti di nuovi e in piu’, per qualche giorno, anche la zia Lulu’, lo zio Paolo e la piccola Francesca, ci hanno fatto compagnia, seppur alloggiati in un hotel un po’ lontano dalla nostra casaetta.
Il mare e’ stato un po’ piu’ agitato dello scorso anno, ma il sole non e’ mancato, e la mitica sabbia di velluto ha permesso di creare castelli, vulcani, piste, tunnel e quant’altro. Lorenzo e Bea si sono divertiti un sacco con i tanti bimbi incontrati sulla spiaggia, e poi non ci siamo fatti mancare alcune super colazioni da Ser Caramello, le patate di Scartozz, oltre che il giro in riscio’ e il tour col trenino. Le poche mezze giornate di pioggia le abbiamo passate giocando in casa, in compagnia degli zii, e grazie ad Anto e Andre abbiamo anche gustato una super aperi-cena a casa loro, dove il celebre ciauscolo certo non e’ mancato. Insomma, Senigallia ci piace assai, e l’atmosfera del Jamboree la rende davvero unica. L’anno prossimo non credo torneremo, vorremo visitare nuovi posti, ma un pezzetto del nostro cuore li’ e’ rimasto.
This year we spent our summer holidays in Senigallia, exactly like the last year. Same location, same accomodation (a nice house with a big garden), same happiness. Beatrice is now more independent, and Lorenzo less jealous, so at the end, the vacation was more relaxing for all of us. We enjoyed Senigallia, the lovely Summer Jamboree, the beautiful beach, the freedom of the bike rides through the city, some special breakfast at Ser Caramello, the amazing ciauscolo, some new friendship and also the presence of “zia Lulu’, zio Paolo and little Francesca”. Next year we probably will change location, but for sure we left a piece of our heart in Senigallia.
We took a lot of pictures, and there is no way to write text enough to embed them through the post, so let’s add at the end of this post some of the pictures we like more.
A good pizza, in a nice place (Tourle’), with good friends and with all the babies happy. What more? Thanks to Damiano, Rossella, Giuseppe e Carmen for this special evening!!!!
After Beatrice 1st birthday, after Lorenzo 4th birthday, at the end it was also time for little Francesca’s first birthday. And although she is not ready yet to walk, we are pretty sure that quite soon it will be funny to see what the little cousins will do. Happy birthday little Francesca, and thanks for the great cake!!!
Today, eventually, we had our young colleagues Ivan and Nicola at our place for a dinner. With them we spent a nice evening, and also Lorenzo and Beatrice, altough a bit shy, enjoyed their company. Silvia prepared a good dinner, and at the end we had two different dessert: a great “gelato” brought by Ivan and Nicola, and an amazing New York cheesecake prepared by Silvia. Thanks for coming and thanks for your patience!!!
Today is the 80th birthday of “nonna” Carla and although she decided to avoid any specific celebration, Lorenzo and Bea decided to bring her a cake. So we went at their place with the cake, with a simbolic candle. And you can see in the picture the grandparents, happy with the little grandchildren. Happy birthday nonna Carla!!!
