Anniversary Party

Last weekend we also celebrated Mark’s grandparents’ 65th wedding anniversary. All of his aunts, uncles, and cousins were able to come to town. Only Mark’s youngest brother was missing (he is in the middle of finals at school). We weren’t all able to be together for Thanksgiving this past year, so this was nice. The cousins played all afternoon, one of Mark’s uncles grilled a TON of steaks, we took family pictures, and just caught up on each other’s lives. The only thing that would have been nicer is if it had been warmer. Ohio weather is so unpredictable and it was only in the mid 60s. (As comparison, today it was 87, and this weekend it’ll be in the 60s again!)

Some of the ladies, enjoying the sunshine.

Miles got a lot of use out of the small bouncy house one of the cousins brought.

Listen. If you haven't had cassata cake, you haven't lived. This is a staple at Italian major family events.

I've been trying to teach Julian to hit a ball. He was't interested from ME, but when his UNCLE tries to teach him...totally different story! :-)
