New hobby

A few months ago I noticed that my friend, Alessandra, has very pretty earrings, she has one basicaly for every dress matchings in colors. I asked her where she buys them, and for my surprise she said that she is making them. Of course she had to teach me!! I have to tell you that only your fantasy and creativity can stop you. Here some of my creations:

On the 12th of April Emanuel's cousin got married, and we went to the wedding, of course. In fact, Giacomo received an assignment. He had to held the ribbon that the bride cuts when she leaves the home of the parents. Giacomo was very willing to do his role, but he had such a funny face. When we asked him to smile a little bit, he told us that he will be like this all the time...and as you can see on the picture, he kept his word!

Samuele before and after church

Samuele always has cool things to do...while we were getting ready he ate his breakfast...
on the table:

"Mom, this morning was really long, I am so tired. You just take off your shoes, I am waiting here for you, ok?"

Last week (26. April) the weather was so beautiful in morning, that we quickly prepared the kids, some food and we were already out of the house. We decided to visit Sirmione and the lake Garda. It is only a 40 minutes ride by car, plus another 40 minutes to find parking. The children enjoyed all the new things. Here are some pictures and some experiences:

From the parking lot it took 10 minutes to arrive to the lake. There we got on a boat and went to the downtown. Giacomo and Samuele were very happy to be "on the water", even if Samuele was complaining that there was too much wind, on hte other hand, Giacomo was able to see a lot of sharks!!

We also found a brand new, red Ferrari...since we can't afford one, we took some pictures of it...

The lake was one of the greates attraction of the day. Since the boys were craving for some adventure in it, we took off their shoes and socks and let the try the water. Were they happy?... oh, YES!!

And finally, an everyday conversation and its consequences...

Kornelia and Emanuel: Giacomo, stay at the shore!
Giacomo: Yes!
K and E: Giacomoooo! Did you hear what we have said?
Giacomo: Yes!

K and E: Giacomo!!!! Giacomo!!! Don't go further in!!
Giacomo: Mammmma! Now my pants are wet...what should we do? Shall I take them off?
