|Maria meets a blueberry gelato cone in Sardinia. It was a happy discovery!|
|We spent a few more days on the beach. Maria wore more material on her body|
than the rest of the outfits on the beach combined!
|Gio was very rarely out of the water (snorkeling is a new passion). Here is a rare moment on dry land.|
|On the ferry ride back to Livorno. Vacations are exhausting!|
|Maria was so hungry once we returned home that she insisted on having the entire bowl of pasta.|
|Gio and Maria were very excited on Wednesday morning to see the big birthday surprise being installed....|
|...and a swing set!|
|Time to drop Gio at camp.|
|Bath toys are not just for the bath, right?!|
|Birthday morning snuggling.|
|What a difference a year makes!|
|Her first ever birthday card! Thanks, Grace & Family!|
|First cupcake ever....|
|...and the verdict...|
|...need another taste....|
|so so. This is all she ate. Clearly she did NOT inherit her momma's sweet tooth!|
|She would happily do this for an hour (and has done so every day since!)|
|Enzo is a big fan of the sandbox. |
We do try to keep Pepper away (there is a cover to keep it from becoming his litter box)!
|Cupcake rejected but a popsicle? Score! |
These are helping Maria who has been cutting 4 molars for the last two weeks. Poor thing!
|Saturday afternoon and time for the big birthday party!|
|This entire cake is made of gelato! |
Maria ate none of it but we all managed to finish it anyway. Yum!
|She drank it all!|
