This week we're watching my mom's dog (the one she got when we got Aspen). His name is Rollo, and we're pretty sure he's Aspen's son. They LOVE being together, and are always side by side. Alex now calls them Rollio and Aspenette (aka Romeo and Juliette). I thought it was fitting.
Lydia asked me this morning to put a "love heart" in her lunch. I asked her what that was and she said, "a piece of paper with love written on it". I guess the other moms are writing little love notes in their kids lunches... I'm glad Lydia knows that she needs to give her mom little helps with this kind of stuff :)
Last weekend we went to the Italian Festival. We go every year because it is always so much fun, and GOOD FOOD! Alex and Lydia crushed grapes again, Alex still doesn't like it :)We also got to dance in the streets too. My old friend Chelsey (sumner) and her little boy danced with us (they're in the blue shirts) Lydia seems to be showing off her calf muscles quite nicely in this picture :)
I also danced the tarantella with Alex. I had forgotten that I put our Italian waffel cookies in my bag right before... this is what they look like after a vigorous tarantella :)
Hopefully we'll get more next year!
