It’s still pretty hot around here … like in the 80’s kind of hot … like you wonna go to a Farmer’s Market and then play in a fountain kind of hot. So we did. Aria, Christina and I went to this Framer’s Market in Rancho Cucamonga at this shopping center called Victoria Gardens. And it was a beautiful day. Sometimes the boys are crazy and fight and it’s too hot, but not today. It was wonderful. We bought flavored honey sticks (they had rootbeer honey!), strawberries and the best hummus on the planet along with the greatest pita bread. Then we went to the fountain, let the boys run around in it and sat and talked on a bench in the shade with the babies. Dream. come. true. The boys continued playing by running around on the grass once they dried off from the fountain. And we watched and handed out food and water when they ran by. So good. So fun. Such an awesome way to blow a September day, eh? This is Fall around here I guess
Luca turning his honey sticks into, of course, a gun.
Now this is a rare siting … Rocco in a picture.
I blame ridiculous faces like this on Daniel. Daniel makes the same faces when I hold up the camera ….
At least this shows how Noah has lost his two front teeth and his adult teeth are coming in.
Now Luca is just a child model. He is so gorgeous. His luscious lips (which you HAVE to appreciate in person) and the perfect tan skin and deep, dark, brown eyes. He is just so pretty!
Then there’s Chiara, who is THE perfect baby. She was sick today. But still beautiful. I look like someone hit me in the face with a frying pan when I’m sick, but Chiara dons sickness a little better than me.
Emily painted her toes for the day.
Thank you Daniel for creating weirdos that don’t know how to pose for a picture …
Enzo, telling me something.
Zacky. He is fun. He embodies what fun is.
He is being a zombie in this picture.
A little chilly with the wind blowing, but it was 84 degrees. It must be so fun to be Zacky. Eating pita bread, running in fountains, being a zombie for a minute. It’s the life basically.
The sun dried tomato hummus. Ben is taking a swipe with pita bread. So yummy.
Nice moves in the water by Liam.
Noah knows how to get air when he jumps. Noah is a fierce player.
Emily got in on the fountain action too. This girl is a thrill seeker!
Ray … not so much of a thrill seeker.
Cousins. I don’t know if I ever tire of seeing my boys lined up next to their cousins, enjoying life.
