Over early at Sisi's, rediscovering the goodies she's left out for us.
Exploring the Farmer's Market and Olive Oil Shop. We bought the kind of cheese we'd been searching for a long time. Also got to meet Ms. Firenze who wrote the book, "101 Things to Do with Olive Oil," from cleaning floors to treating ear infections and head lice, it's an amazing thing.
Yesterday was Sisi's 60th birthday and she wanted to celebrate with us in style.
Getting ready to leave again for the evening festivities...
|I can do this step mom!|
|Well, better be safe...|
|We'll do it together.|
Family picture time...
|Downward escape attempt.|
|Upward escape attempt.|
|Baby, you're stuck with us.|
Aunt K plays peek-a-boo, trying desperately to squeeze a smile out of you.
We headed downtown to the "Crossroads" District, down past most the shops and attractions to where many restaurants and lofts are. Most restaurants in this district are a bit off the beaten path. Many are just starting out, getting the chance to prove they can thrive before moving to more prime locations. Others are old mainstays and so well known, they continue to thrive right where they are.
I love you,
