boyworld all day long & on the road...

you might ask why friday's post seemed to have an abundance of caffeinated products for my preferences...the answer is simple.
in boyworld (otherwise know as life since the girls embarked on their adult adventures...oh, how i miss them!) we are busy...

early morning busy...up at the crack of dawn...returning with the fresh catch of the day...(watch out for what's cooking wednesday!)
all day busy...a visit to a nearby zoo where they have a new tenant...a white tiger - a must see for those in boyworld!other fascinating moments at the zoo included the tongue of the giraffe...hey, what are you looking at???...& being in the mouth of the man-eating (or maybe just man-chewing) lion...
time for an emergency caffe stop (yes, i am ashamed of myself, but since i don't currently live in italy it will have to do...& at home i can assure you it's all lavazza & illy)...& then off to the hallowe'en store for more costume supplies (sorry, no pictures here...that is a surprise for all hallow's eve!)

evening busy...cast netting some shrimp for bait & for dinner!...more time on the water before it's too cold (yes, spf...this is part of the PE curriculum!)...even phil is in on the act - he is a boy, after all!...
& for sunset...boyworld has moved on to a friend's house, leaving the parents in recovery with yet another excellent coping mechanism...un bicchiero da vino rosso for sunset on the dock! che fanastico!

What beautiful family memories you have now and forever. Mine are 27 and 25 and I never cease to love looking at all that we have done. Enjoy every moment......especially the vino rosso!!!

Andrea said...

Your posts, full of water-top sunsets, smiling children, boat bumpers and dock splashings-always remind me of my childhood on the Mississippi river. It's a treasured memory. Thanks dear.

Leslie said...

Yes indeed. Your post is full of fun! My boys are grown and on their own -- one even expecting a son of his own soon. I'm glad to see you're enjoying yours.

Ciao, Bello. Will you please email me privately. I have a question to ask you about liturgy.

Thanks
Annie
