After a harrowing ordeal involving mass quantities of snow and a spark igniting felled tree, my mom and my God mom prevailed over all challenges to arrive in San Diego yesterday morning!
|Look who's tall! That's a first|
It is such a delightful treat to have these two lovelies in town. We found a super deal on a new hotel in a fun neighborhood, and it seemed only natural to host our favorite Little Italian person in the heart of Little Italy! Here are just a few photos from our first night together, featuring more food than faces just like in Big Italy.
|Amaretto on the rocks!|
|Cheer up, man/boy, your pasta is en route|
|I wanted to marry my tortellini and have its babies|
|Mom can't resist a side of mashies. Imagine! (They were yum) James' bolognese in the background|
|Joan's gnocchi, Clara's pesto, Meg's spinach filled gnocchi (an abomination, according to Mrs C)|
|oh look, faces AND the food that will go into them|
|Yay! I'm sorry to say that this is the best of the group shots. We'll do better tonight|
Next stop: Mexico
